Perhaps a Pittsburgh collector could give more input than I can, but it seems to be a pretty hard one to find by the looks of it. The only reference to it's existence I could find online is a mention in a mid-1990's Kovels price guide and an old advertisement I pulled out of an October 1868 edition of Leisure Hours:

It appears J. C. Tilton was the marketer/proprietor of the cure and had at least two other products under the Ashbaugh name, a "German Hair Remover" and a very attractive bitters bottle as seen here:

Very interesting! The poem advertisement is very cool, as I have never seen that before. Very glad to hear it is hard to find! Thanks for the info
