Charles M. Fassitt, Druggist, Ruby Hill, Nevada. “WT & Co.” embossed on face. Classic 4 ounce size, 5 inches tall. This bottle is a pristine choice example, with no chips dings or scratches of any kind. It only retains a little bit of original stain. Ruby Hill was a small mining camp 1 mile west of Eureka Nevada. It housed one of the largest silver mines in Nevada, which today is one of Nevada's great open pit gold mines. At one time for there were only two mint examples of this bottle known, one in the Haddock collection and the other in the Bob McKay collection, who was the caretaker of Ruby Hill. Holabird eventually acquired both bottles and this is probably one of the two. Since that time several others have been dug, but this remains one of America's top ghost town drugstore bottles.
