A rare original doctor's Prohibition medicinal liquor Prescription stub for Whiskey...Oi (pint)....for Anorexia. This prescription stub has an "ailment for which prescribed" line, which gives a great insight as to why whiskey was being prescribed during the Prohibition. Please see photos!

From the days of Al Capone, flappers and moonshine a prescription from your doctor was the only legal way to drink liquor in the US!

The prescription stub was prescribed for Wm. B. W. Smith, by Dr. Crawford Griswold, of Bridgeport, CT, on July 3, 1931. It was issued by the Treasury Department, when held to the light, PROHIBITION is watermarked. These stubs had to be legible and were open to inspection by Federal Officers!

The prescription stub measures 4 1/2" by 3" and is in excellent condition...a great diddy from the Prohibition!
