An ornate original antique document dated 1884 for the Business of Retail Liquor Dealer issued by the US Internal Revenue..."Severe Penalties are imposed for neglect or refusal to place and keep this stamp conspicuously in your establishment or place of business"! Please see photos!

This document has beautiful graphics, engraved on the top center is the Greek God, Mercury, with the medical symbol (snake & staff) in hand, leaning on a large woven wicker, glass bottle, sitting next to wooden kegs, a moonshine still, along with a funnel lying on the ground! Also, a great cornecopia of veggies, flowers and fruit on the bottom left corner! The government used this stamp as a tax for selling, dispensing and distilling liquor to raise money to pay for the Civil War. It is watermarked, "USIR", in fine print on the bottom is: "Bureau, Engraving & Printing", "$25 Dollars Per Year" near the bottom, and "Stamp For Special Tax", near the top. The front measures 7" by 8", the payment coupons are folded behind so it a bit larger (approximately 7" by 14"). There are three hole punches, three slits on the back edge, some brittleness along the fold, and age toning (not white), otherwise, condition is excellent...great in person!

This is a FANTASTIC piece of history and would be great to display in a wine cellar, pharmacy, bar, liquor store, distillery or office! I am happy to answer any questions, please feel free to email, thanks!

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!
