Prohibition was good for some like the Capones and Kennedys.
Old fashioned bootlegging and running the slots south of Chicago was Grandpa's solution to Prohibition. Thanks to Grandma who as a young prescient girl married a guy who up and ran away subsequently finding oil in Oklahoma, fortunatly shared some of it with Grandma. Between him and Frank the bootlegger she had time to prospect as a rock hound finding many rare fossils like the Eohippus and other gems.
Booze, silver dollars from the slots and oil were the sins of the family fortune.
That is why I relatively reject all three in my liftime.
But fossils are cool.

My wife's side of the family may have some fred hybrids which is a dillemma. -bad driving and all-
