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. A great looking little quack medicine bottle of Catarrh Cure. Catarrh Cure? Catarrh is similar to a common cold of today and these 'powders' were evidently sniffed to CURE it, that's what it says. Even though today mankind can't even cure a common cold, back then Dr Cole had already figured it out but I guess no one would listen and the common cold is still a common affliction today. In the meantime Dr. Cole's cure recipe has been lost in time so we still suffer from colds. This is actually a fairly RARE little CURE bottle, and is listed as 'GOOD' in the early CURE book written by pioneer cure collector Bill Agee. The CURES are a strong category of collecting still today. Many times bottles are advertised as 'cures' but in reality, they have to have the magic 'CURE' word embossed in the glass for them to be of interested to the serious cure collectors of today. Some of these old Catarrh medicines were rumored to of even had COCAINE in them to really bring relief to the user. That seems feasible as most of these little Catarrh medicine bottles contained a powder that was to be sniffed or snuffed, you know, take a whiff, the same way that cocaine is ingested to this day.
