I have an old tin of Korean Red Ginseng that came from the estate of General Van Fleet, it's 600 grams and has the number 15 on top. I would like to know more about it if anybody knows anything. I will follow up with pics.

Thanks
Terry

Re: korean Red Ginseng

That is the old Korean version of Viagra. 15 would be either the company or the pharmacy where it came from or the brand as brands change like skivvies there.
If the tin has been sealed and unopened the contents may still be good. A simple 10oz green tea, 1t ginsing, two cardomum seeds, and 1t of honey is the recipe should you want to try it.
Thos with erections lasting longer than three hours should call at least ten females before seeing the docter

Re: korean Red Ginseng

Thanks Switchblade I don't want to try it it's probably 30 to 50 years old. That's one of things I am trying to find out is the age. I can't find a date on it, the print on it is in English and Korean.

Re: korean Red Ginseng

If you open it and try it, should be no problem finding a date!

We send our 'seng over there.
It is so good that now they placed more regs on what we can dig.
Some sell, many keep what they get.

Many were digging before most were born.

Re: korean Red Ginseng

Maybe? But was probably given to him by someone in the Korean Government. There are a lot of other gifts, awards, letters, and post cards from them; and he had Government officials and the President of Korea visit with him here in the Green Swamp.

Re: korean Red Ginseng

I couldn't pass it up!

The historic value of said container is pretty cool. If it were mine I would have to open it up just to see. Kind of like a certain Beatle's record I found at a yard sale in perfect condition with them sitting in a trunk...steam, and oh man Original cover!
