We know these tickets are still made today. But finding ones like these is quite difficult.
These little fortune numbers were designed to be used for a raffle or drawing. After all of the tickets were sold, then an official would draw a ticket from a hat, barrel or drum.
Here the winning number is 19 (see the second photo).
The tickets are designed with a lot number on the back. This lot is labeled. On the front is a fortune!
SERIES 6255 Union Made Made in USA
On the front is a fortune with a tear-away strip.
There are a bunch of fortune tickets just like these - the messages vary. This one is 19. And, just so mistakes aren't made or ne'er-do-well patrons aren't tempted to alter the tickets, the word for each digit is printed over the digit.
