1773 Cox's "Museum-Lottery" Beneficial-Chance Ticket
c. 1773-Dated, Cox's "Museum-Lottery" Ticket. Plate A. Britain. Choice Extremely Fine.
An impressive, ornately designed Colonial era Lottery Ticket held to benefit the Cox's Museum. We can date this as being held in 1773 as it states to be "made in the Thirteenth Year of His Majesty's Reign." (which began in 1760 thus held in 1773). Boldly signed by James Cox, Jun. and having a wonderful, ornate design and a great overall look.
