The winner of this no reserve auction will have an instant collection of fabulous Vintage DeWitt's Items . Everything in the pictures provided will be included. I believe everything still comes with its original box, although the boxes show wear and a few of the boxes contain their original literature pages. T is a huge assortment of medicinal items typically found at an old drug store's pharmacy counter. Many are rare & are getting hard to find. Some are emptly while others still have substances inside which may or may not be the original product - we have no way to tell. Obviously they have all surpassed their expirations and could cause harm if used so do not use them. These are collectibles and are not meant for ingestion, etc., so be advised that we are not responsible for any of these medications should the winner attempt to use them.
