About 4 7/8” x 3 7/8” with signature of original owner of ticket on reverse in period brown ink. This was the 48th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. In the center circle was the space for writing the name and has the original issuing Secretary signature below. Each one of these had a serial number and we think this one is “No. 469”. Quote from John Adams in circular type made at the original signing in 1776. Very early July 4 celebration ticket, earliest we have ever had in any form. Overall dark toning and heavy brown stain at lower left corner as shown. Printed on card stock weight paper.
