10/10/30 PROHIBITION WHISKEY Fisher Drug PRESCRIPTION Old Pharmacy Bar Brewer CA
Thank You for Shopping In the USA!
A great original government issued Prohibition Prescription for Spirits Frumenti, the US pharmaceutical term for Whiskey... Oi (pint)....Zi q 6 hrs (1ounce every 6 hours)! Please see photos!
From the days of Al Capone, flappers and moonshine this prescription was the only legal way to drink liquor in the US!
The prescription was prescribed for E. C. Fisher, by Dr. Maurice Hopkins, on October 8, 19330 and was filledon October 10, 1930,by Pharmacist,Chas. E. Bowes,of Affleck's Drug Store, in Sacramento, CA.
It was issued by the Treasury Department and is printed on, beautiful pink paper. In the center is the old Treasury Seal with the Latin inscription, "Thesaur. Amer. Septent. Sigil.". When you hold this prescription up to the light INDUSTRIAL ALCOHOL is watermarked, as with the metal strips that are used in U.S. bills today, the graphics are GREAT!
This was the pharmacist's duplicate copy, printed on the back are the "Instructions", one of which is: "This duplicate prescription must be retained by the druggist as permanent record, open to inspection by Federal Officers", the top copy was sent to the government. This prescription measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/2", has a spindle hole, light bends and some of the doc's writing is light, otherwise, condition is very good...a great script!
This is a FANTASTIC piece of history and would be great to display in a pharmacy, museum, bar or office! I am happy to answer any questions, please feel free to email, thanks!
Pleased to combine shipping with other Prohibition Prescriptions, Liquor Licenses, Opium Forms & Pharmacy Labels. As always, many thanks to my regular customers for your continued patronage! :)
