Description

An ornate original 1925 Prohibition Prescription for Spirits Frumenti, the US pharmaceutical term for Whiskey...Oi (pint)....Zii tid (2 ounces 3 times daily)! This prescription was used for a short period of time during the Prohibition, between 1924 and 1925. 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 Harry M. Ford, by Dr. Mortimer T. Cavanaugh, on August 26, 1925, and was filled the same day by Pharmacist, John M. Cassidy, in Great Barrington, MA.

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!

The prescription measures 6 1/2" x 4 3/8", has one fold, a spindle hole and a few bends, otherwise, condition is excellent...a beautiful 1925 prescription!

This is a FANTASTIC piece of history and would be great to display in a pharmacy, museum, distillery, wine cellar, bar or office! I am happy to answer any questions you may have, 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!

All items ship within 24 hours and I will contact you when I receive notification of any purchase, thank you! :)
