There has been a discovery! And finders is not keepers when it comes to eBay.[:mad:]
I discovered, but could not buy, an actual KH-26 with an authentic poison label.
This is a clear issue, and made for
WM. R. WARNER & CO, 3" tall
So this is not a Sharp & Dohme, but the same mold used by another company in Philadelphia.
This kind of puts this bottle back on the poison map, so to speak. Even though, the original never held poisons( from S&D or the Red Dragon bottles) this leave one foot into the book. Will just have to make note which one's were and which ones were not.

It sold for 55 and change. I don't know who won, but I know who didn't. So the odds that I can get better images is slim.

Label reads as such (from the eBay listing):

GRANULES
MORPHIN SUL
One-fourth Grain
Done, 1 to 2
WM. R. WARNER & CO.

***The bottle also has a label with POISON on the neck****
***Bottle also has WM. R. Warner PHILADELPHIA embossed on it***

KB, if you could send me a good pix of it, I would be appreciative...or the bottle, which ever. [;)]

Thanks, Jim. Maybe it's a club member I can get some better pictures from.. I'm surprised Joan didn't bid on this, it's a defining moment for this bottle after many years.

Thanks for the sleuthing, Jim.
Does look like it could be the same person. I found someone in the club with a similar name, but the ISP is in Wi. and Mi....not SC. So the quesiton is, is it out of line for me to contact him regarding this bottle?
