Yes, that one is 1934 mini with the first version of the Herbsaint label, around 1935 the red bar with Herbsaint in block letters was added to the label.
Legendre sold quite a lot of mini Herbsaint bottles as a way to get the product out in different areas, to expose Herbsaint to the public. The mini bottles were sold on trains in the bar cars, before air travel became big.
The first two I found in 2000, I let Ted get to analyze, then Oxy beat me on the next one, after that I became rather relentless in pursuing Herbsaint items.
The first mini I snagged was same label, but still full. The first full sized Herbsaint bottle I obtained back in early 2001, was kept by a lady after she, and her then new husband finished the contents. She kept the empty bottle for many years because she said it looked so nice. (I've been collecting the stories of these things too)
A better shot of the ancient ones.

At the close of the day drink an Herbsaint Frappé,...Legendre Herbsaint, always served when absinthe is called for.
