I actually found one of these devices recently while digging for old bottles in New Jersey. Still has a readable label on the inside.

I just bought one of these from an antique mall and was pleased to find the records on this! I would love to have a copy of the photo listed if you could tell me where I could possibly get a reproduction one?

My husband Joe found a metal cap showing Cushman's menthol inhaler, Three Rivers, Mich. while metal detecting on our property. We were pleased to find your reference because we had no idea how old it was. Thank you!
