It may have some dust or residue but it would clean up to SPARKLING CLEAN MINT condition as it is not a dug bottle and has spent that last 125 years protected inside of the box. The label is aged and has areas that are not legible. The box is VERY ROUGH, the bottom and top are missing so it is just a shell, BUT all of the information on the box is FULLY LEGIBLE. And the bottle still fits right into the box. In summary, the bottle is fine, the paper label is okay, and the box is very well used, but all go together and serve their original purpose.Age : An early hand-blown bottle (Blown-In-Mold = BIM) with a tooled-top, ca. It is a light TURQUOISE AQUA MARINE color , comes in a tiny size, has bold, crisp embossing, and has the magic word CURE embossed on it. One of the smallest bottles with the embossed CURE on it that we've seen, and quite the title ARCTIC FROST BITE CURE , an absolute JEWEL of an antique bottle. This is an early bottle as, unlike many of the packaged patent medicine bottles you see for sale, this one has NO MENTION of the 1906 PURE Food and Drug Act, as this bottle pre-dates the formation of that Food and Drug Administration. Both box and label repeatedly use the word CURE.
