Hi everybody! I purchased this bottle a while back and just now getting around to researching the value. If the numbers on the front of the label correspond to a date, that date was in January 07, 1929. Can anyone tell me if that's a born on date or a expiration date? Does it have any value?

Yes it has value. Real paper labels can not be dug .I would hold on to that one. Embossed bottles are easy to dig .paper labels are not.wellcome an nice find thanks for sharing

I think that's the first labeled Pinkham's that I remember seeing. The embossed ones are very common but it wasn't something that would be likely to sit untouched in the medicine cabinet for decades, so I doubt many of those labels survived. The date is most likely the date it was bottled, definitely not an expiration date (I don't think those were in use in the 1920s, I've certainly never seen one that old anyway). 1929 looks about right for that style of bottle.

The older embossed Bottles are extremely common. That one being newer would usually not be rarer but with the label it may be. Congrats. nice find. LEON.
