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
