    Frankly, I'm not sure why I picked the bottle up. I don't usually like machine-made bottles. I don't collect liniments, as I've never used one.
    Perhaps it was the scent that filled the air from the leaky bottle. It was cruelly strong up close, but at a distance it was pleasant. Maybe it was the colour of the liquid. Or that the box was in green, my favourite colour. It must have been a combination.

    I picked it up for a decent price. The bottle with label and contents but no box sold for $5 over what I paid, so I'd say that with the box I can double my money (and sell for $20 eventually).

    Not sure what drives up the value. Maybe it's a combination of colour of liquid, circus theme, and Ringling Bros. endorsement.

    Many liniments were harsh, burning your skin to remove the problem. This one is guaranteed gentle, so that it was so very leaky was not too concerning.

      LOL, Political Pinbacks.
      I'm afraid that it is a unique scent. As for Superman, I'm sure he'd be a decent person and not wanna kill a poor wittle bear like I.
