This bottle is a transition bottle made in 1906-1907 It was produced for a very short time with the cure embossing but bearing the cure label and the FDA statement of 1906. Soon the word cure would change to Remedy and the bottles would be embossed with the word Remedy. That changed to the Safe Remedies Co bottles and were labeled Diabetes Remedy after approx. 1909.
