Very small early-20th century medicine tin that once held 6 Dominion Headache Tablets. Features clear lithographed text & graphics done in white, navy and baby blue. Price of 5 cents is printed on the lid, a fact that provides a clue that this tin comes from the 1930's. Note that the word "Aspirin" is absent from the package. A perfect (and RARE) specimen to adorn any collector's vintage/antique medicinal cabinet.
Top lid of tin says, "Dominion Headache Tablets. Six 5 Gr. Tablets. Trade mark registered. Price 5 cents". Bottom reads,
