Description

This resource consists of two digital scans of three lottery tickets, front and back. Each ticket has its own unique identifying number (handwritten), a typed paragraph that is the same for each ticket, and then the name of the ticket seller (handwritten).

On the back of each ticket is a handwritten note that while mostly illegible, includes the name of the ticket buyers.
