An ornate original 1924 Prohibition Prescription for Spirits Frumenti, the US pharmaceutical term for Whiskey...Oi (1 pint)...Sig. Zii (2 ozs) in hot water at bedtime! Please see photos!

From the days of Al Capone, flappers and moonshine this was the only legal way to drink liquor in the US!

The prescription was prescribed for Mrs. W. Hartel, by Dr. Frank Bacon Hancock, Sports Medicine, Penn State (there is a house on Philly's Boat House Row named in his honor), on July 18, 1924, and was filled on July 19, 1924 by Pharmacist, Theodore Campbell, of Campbell's Drug Store, in Philadelphia, PA.

It was issued by the Treasury Department and is 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 this prescription up to the light PROHIBITION is watermarked, as with the metal strips that are used in U.S. bills today, the graphics are GREAT! This prescription measures 6 1/2" x 4 3/8", has light folds, otherwise, condition is excellent...a great script!

This is a FANTASTIC piece of history and would be great to display in a pharmacy, doctor's office, museum, bar or office! I am happy to answer any questions, please feel free to email, thanks!
