A few years ago, someone showed me one of the most unusual Warner’s Safe Cures I had ever seen. In most respects it appeared to be a typical half pint London Safe Cure, with one major exception. The words “Safe Cure” are very large and very crude. At first, I assumed that this was some kind of mold error. But it’s not really an error. Nothing is misspelled or reversed. The only oddity is the size of the print.
I’ve only seen one example of this bottle, but understand that one other may exist. Accordingly, it should be considered rare and consequently more valuable than the normal London half pint. Take a look at the picture above and tell me what you think. Thanks to Ed Ojea for the photograph of this unique bottle.
