Antique 1875 MOONSHINE STILL Maker Whisky Liquor Civil War Bar Distillery Brewer
Antique 1875 MOONSHINE STILL Maker Whisky Liquor Civil War Bar Distillery Brewer. Thank You for Shopping In the USA! An original ornate 1875 document for the Business of Manufactur. Er of Stills 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"! This docum ent was m or e oft en issu ed for liquor d eal ers as not many p eopl e mad e stills during th e p eriod. This document has beautiful graphics on a fantastic shade of blue paper! 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! To prevent forgeries the government put black silk threads in the paper, which can be seen upon closer inspection... The document has hole punches on the front and a line on the back (to void), light edge wear and two tack holes, otherwise, condition is excellent... A beautiful document with great moonshine, liquor, distillery history! This is a FANTASTIC piece, of history and would be great to display in a brewery, pharmacy, bar, distillery, museum or office! As always, many thanks to my regular customers for your continued patronage!
