A great original 1929 Prohibition Prescription for Spirits Frumenti, the US pharmaceutical term for Whiskey ~ One Pint ~ Tablespoon three times daily! By law, this particular prescription was to be returned to the government, and most were! Please see photos!

From the days of Al Capone (in this case Pretty Boy Floyd, 1933 Kansas City Massacre), flappers and moonshine, this was the only legal way to drink liquor in the US!

The prescription was written for Wilson Brown, by Dr. Wheeler, on January 19, 1929, and was filled the same day by Pharmacist, L. C. Yunker, Sr., of Yunker & Lierman Drug Co., in Sedalia, MO. It was issued by the Treasury Department and is printed on fancy, beautiful 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 top original, was to be forwarded by the pharmacist to the government on the 10th day of the ensuing month! Printed on the back are a few paragraphs of "Instructions"; fascinating information and great reading! This prescription measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/2", has two pin holes and light bends, otherwise, condition is excellent!

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!
