Description

A great original Prohibition Prescription for Whiskey...480 (pint)...Tablespoon tid (3 times daily)! The doc wrote the patient's name on the top line, then crossed it out, note his initials above the Rx. 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 whiskey was prescribed for Paul Taylor, by Dr. Richard G. Senbier, on October 28, 1931, and was filled the same day by Pharmacist, Dino J. Pucci, of Augustus 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, PROHIBITION 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.

The prescription measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/2", has a spindle hole, a light fold and light bends, otherwise, condition is excellent...a great prescription!

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 and thank you for your interest!

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!
