      The Rx is for pharmacy. Wikipedia says : “A prescription, often abbreviated ? or Rx, is a health care program implemented by a physician or other qualified health care practitioner in the form of instructions that govern the plan of care for an individual patient.[1] The term often refers to a health care provider's written authorization for a patient to purchase a prescription drug from a pharmacist.”

      The convention may have been given by lobbyists for a drug company for physicians to promote them using their drug company . These people will appear in Drs offices and give samples of their drugs and want to talk to the Drs who don't have time . The free samples often passed on to patients by Drs :-) Just a cool set and I doubt many were made . Snowing here cokeman so trying to keep ahead of it lol

      The first letter Rx is actually a Latin abbreviation used by physicians to order pharmacists what to do. Full word is Recipe (take) then e.g. acidi salicylici (in genitiv) 5.0 (grams). DS (Da Signa) Give (to the patient) and mark (signa) e.g. ‚‚for external use‚‚.

      Thanks IVAN49 for the info. Thanks bb2 for stopping by.....
    10. Manikin Manikin, 6 months ago
      I bet it is colder than that here !! lol
    11. Cokeman1959, 6 months ago
      Mani.....it probably is colder where you at but us southern folk have a low tolerance level for cold weather. If the weather service predicts snow we go on lockdown:) Appreciate you and stay safe!
