Dr. Henley's Wild Grape Root IXL Bitters

Here's an interesting advertisement from L. Gross threatening all who are buying up his old Henley's bottles for use in counterfeiting his product. Seems like as soon as a product became popular and sales soared, back in the 19th century, someone tried to copy or counterfeit the successful product.

Kinda makes you wonder if that Henley's that went for four figures in auction 49 held the real Wild Grape Root IXL Bitters or some counterfeit product.

Times haven't changed much, have they.
