Metal adhesive bandage case for Stat Strip adhesive bandages, which originally contained 30 `Band-Aid' type adhesive bandages (10 are still found inside); information about the creator of the bandage (National Patent Medicine) and on how to put on a bandage is on side and back; adhered to front is a green or reddish (depending on angle of light) double-exposure photopolymer hologram, showing 2 images; when viewed from left, image shows 2 hands holding a sealed bandage reading `Hold Tabs and Pull,' one hand on either end; when viewed from right, the hands have pulled apart the wrapping, exposing the bandage.
