We have enjoyed shipping our items all over the world and are happy to offer most of our items to international buyers. Yet insuring International parcels is very expensive so PLEASE NOTE; we do NOT insure International orders unless winning buyer specifically requests this and we are able to provide an insurance quote. We do not falsify information on the Customs Form, such as a price other than what the actual purchase price is, so please do not request us to do so. We ship several times a week and send payment acknowledgments and shipping confirmations. Your prompt payment will assure a very quick turn-around time. IMPORTANT NOTE: If our shipping charge is much more than the actual shipping cost, we will refund the excess so what YOU pay for shipping/insurance is very close to, if not exactly, the ACTUAL shipping costs! This is especially important for foreign buyers to know as most of our foreign shipping charges are rough estimates. This is the first style of bottle used by Bayer, this style possibly dates back to the latter 1800's. These early bottles came in 2 sizes and styles. This is the larger rectangular shape, there is also a smaller oval shaped that contained less. Most all of the 'antique' Bayer bottles you see for sale on the internet are the newer bottles with the word Bayer just embossed on each side, these original bottles with embossing in cross are rarely seen for sale, hard to find! Bayer started producing HEROIN in the late 1800's. Using the name Heroin, supposedly because early testers said it made them feel heroic, like heros, and Bayer began selling it in tablet form in the 1890's. By 1899, Bayer was producing about a ton of heroin a year, and was eventually exporting the drug to other countries as well, including the USA. But reports of HEROIN addiction reached gigantic proportions so in the early 19-teens, Bayer wisely elected to withdraw from Heroin production. Bayer had released their aspirin tablets at about the time they were producing heroin and so they dropped the heroin production and turned all of its resources to the manufacturer of aspirin, as aspirin, the 'new' non-addictive painkiller and anti-inflammatory, was well on its way to becoming the most popular drug ever. Note how you are starting to see labeled bottles with this same style label on them, on eBay? All of these are coming from the original 4 bottles that WE had and sold on eBay. Note that none of them are ORIGINAL BAYER BOTTLES, like this one is, but just junk blank bottles that weren't ever pill bottles, and yet folks are paying way too much for them?
