Hi Barqs ,
The Kilmer's with embossed lungs I think is the toughest to find and usually demands a 600.00 - 800.00 price range at auction . CATARRH / DR.KILMER'S/ COUGH CURE / CONSUMPTION OIL (within embossed lungs) / SPECIFIC - DR.KILMER & CO. / BINGHAMTON N.Y. It is approx. 8 3/4" tall and is Aqua in color. Smooth base and double collared lip.

Matt...

Do you have any photos? I've not been able to find any reference to an olive colored Kilmer's, probably due to the limited nature of my resources...

I normally sell or trade the Kilmer bottles I find since I dont collect them.
I sold an unembossed light olive kidney cure on ebay couple weeks ago.
I've had some better ones but dont have a photo handy.
Tino's Dr Kilmer kilmer site shows a good variety...

Hi Matt...

Thanks for the photos... I guess I was thinking more along the color of this flask which is described as "bright olive green"...

The bottle you pictured seems, to me, to be an aqua that went toward the green rather than the blue...

Anyway, as I always say: color is a big can o' worms...
