Description

A great original 1923 Prohibition Prescription for Spirits Frumenti, the US pharmaceutical term for Whiskey ~ Oi (pint)! This was the second of five prescriptions issued during the Prohibition and was used for a short period of time, late 1922 to early 1924. Please see photos!

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

The whiskey was prescribed for Mrs. W. Tuney?, on September 30, 1923, and was filled on October 1, 1923 by Pharmacist, Theodore Campbell, of Campbell's Drug Store in Philadelphia, PA.

It was issued by the Treasury Department and is printed on pale blue paper with old Treasury Seals. 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!

The prescription measures 6 1/2" x 4 1/2", has two light folds, a long corner bend and two file punches (one circle still intact), otherwise, condition is excellent...a great 1923 whiskey 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!
