DR. JOHN ROAKES' - IODINE LINIMENT
/ PREPARED BY / S. INGERSOLL / NEW YORK," brilliant aquamarine,
rectangular, pontil scar, 7 1/8"H, applied sloping collar,
mint. American, C. 1850, extremely rare.
Over the years I've seen an awful
lot of pontiled medicine bottles but only one other example of
this handsome liniment. The bottle is "out of the mold"
perfect and very strongly embossed. I cannot be certain but this
does appear to be the Greer example
