During the lifetime of the Warner’s Safe Remedies Company, it is impossible to say how many samples were distributed to the public, but over the years, it would likely to be millions of bottles. Below are three examples of labelled Safe Cure samples. Examples of labelled Safe Cure samples are fairly rare and examples of the labelled Diabetes Remedy and Nervine are almost unheard of.
These wonderful examples were part of the collection of Dan Cowman and the photograph is courtesy of Terry McMurray. Most of the Warner’s samples from Rochester that turn up today are the “Safe Cure” sample. Much rarer is the “Safe Remedy” sample for whatever reason. Prior to see this photograph from Terry, I had never seen a sample in clear glass. All of the above bottles would be considered rare by Warner’s collectors.
