This old tin looks like an aspirin tin but it once contained Helps Pellets. These were probably like Sen-Sen, used as a throat ease and breath freshener. They were made of Menthol - Licorice - Eucalyptus - Peppermint - Anise by the National Licorice Co. of Brooklyn. The colorful tin has original 10c price in the corner of the hinged lid and on the inside it reads; "Helps" Relieve Tickling in the Throat and Are Very Comforting. The front edge of the tin reads; Coughs due to Colds.
It measures about 1 ¾” by 2 ¼” and is in nice condition with good gloss and minor scratch wear.
