2 Prohibition Prescriptions Medicine Wine Rum Whiskey Antique Doctor Bar DEA You for shopping in the USA!
A fantastic original pair of US Government issued Prohibition Prescriptions for Medicinal Liquor! Please see photos!
From the days of Al Capone, speakeasies and moonshine, this was the only legal way to to drink liquor in the US!
The physician typically wrote this prescription for Whiskey or Spirits Frumenti, occasionally for wine or brandy!
The patient took both the top, "Original" and bottom, "Duplicate" to the pharmacist to fill. The pharmacist kept the pink, duplicate Rx, as a permanent record... "Must be retained by the druggist, open to inspection by Federal Officers", and then sent the white Original prescription to the government, "before the TENTH day of the ensuing month".
The prescriptions were issued by the US Treasury Department and are printed on fancy, beautiful paper that was also used for U.S. currency. In the center is the old Treasury Seal with the Latin inscription, "Thesaur. Amer. Septent. Sigil.". When you hold the prescriptions up to the light "PROHIBITION" is watermarked, as with the metal strips that are used in U.S. bills today, the graphics are GREAT!
Each prescription measures 8.5" x 4.5", has a few small or light spots from being from the 20s and a different serial number, otherwise, condition is excellent...great in person!
These are fantastic pieces of history and would be great to display in a pharmacy, wine cellar, distillery, museum, bar or office! I am happy to answer any questions you may have, please feel free to email...thank you for your interest! :)
