Pill was prescribed in 1972. It's round. It has an odd coloring, but appears at one point it would have been yellow. It now looks yellowish grey. one side the imprint read "Eaton 002" with the E much larger than the rest of the letters. The only thing I've found that matches the Eaton imprint is a pill that has "Eaton 072" and is green in color. I only use this as a reference to show someone what the Eaton looks like on the pill in question. the other side simply has a line or indentation the halves the pill. It was found in my grandmothers medicine cabinet and curiosity has the best of me. Thanks for any help you may be able to provide. One other thing, it was prescribed for fever or pain on the label, but had no name of the medication any where.
Sorry jrootky, most pill image databases don't contain entries for products of that era. The FDA database (Drugs@FDA) occasionally has product labels for older medicines, but they tend to be "photocopies" of the hard copy which aren't able to be searched digitally. The answer is probably out there somewhere. Depending how far you want to take this, might be worth searching the Eaton Laboratories archives. You could try contacting the Archives Center at the National Museum of American History and see what they suggest.
