This invention relates to el-tam new and useful improvements in admittance strip tickets.

The primary object of the invention is to pro- I vide an admittance strip ticket wherein the strip 5 preferably unwinds from afreel mounted in a dispensing or delivery machine with the reeled strip of indefinite length to be cut y fiim i'iate mechanism into the desired number of tickets, the tickets being sequentially'numbered, each 10 ticket carrying a concealed prize winning number or character and all of said ticketsof one reel carrying an'identifyingcharacter to asociate' the tickets with a partlcularreel. a A further and important object of theinvenizlon 15' etc provide a ticket strip of the foregoing character that is of double wall or ply Iormation with opposite side edges of the piles of the ticket secured together, the inner face of one ply. carrying a number or other identifying character nor- 20 .mally concealed by the opposite ply andadapted tobeexposedbytearingawindowopeninginthe other ply.

With the above and other objects in view that will become apparent as the nature of the inven- 25 tion is betterunderstood, the same consists in the novel form, combination and arrangement of partsh'ereinafter more fully described, shown in the accomp ny drawing and claimed.

In the drawing:--

50 Figure Gisafragmentary face view of aticketstrip with another form of device for producing a window opening in each ticket for the exposure of the concealed identifyingcharacter .on the other ticket ply. 55 v.Theladmittance strip ticket is of double wall -ingsymbol li'thatisnormally or double ply construction and is wound into the 1 form or areel R as shown in Figure 1 and said reel is preferably mounted in ,a dispensing or delivery machine to eifect the unwinding of the strip 8 therefrom that is divided into separate 5 tickets.

The ticket strip 8 is of double wall'or ply constructioii and'as shown in Figure 4, in developed plan view, the strip is formed of plies ill and II adapted to be folded onto each other along .the 10 center line I! with the freeside edges of the plies II and II preferably adhesively secured together as indicated at l3, although it is to be understood, that other means for securing the free edges together may be employed, or the piles may be separately formed and secured together at'opposite side edges in any preferred manner, one of said methods being disclosed herein and hereafter referred to.

I The double ticket strip is illustrated in Figures 2 and 3 with'the-free side edges of the plies i0 and II secured together and the strip S is.weakened at spacedtransverse hues as she t I4 to facilitate the severance of the strip intcti'ckets T. The strip S has the ticket severance lines ll provided with one or more perforations It for association with appropriate feed mechanism of a machine for unwinding the strip S.from the As shown in Figure 4, the inner face of the ticket ply ll carries a numeral or other identifyncealed by the ticketply II. To gain access to the concealed identifying character or symbol l6, each ticket ply ll of a ticket '1 is provided with a cross slot 'l[ adjacent one end with weakenedfldivergent lines ll extending from the ends of the cross slot to provide a tearing tab it, two of which tabs are illustrated in Figure 2 as-being torn away from the ticket ply II to provide a window open- 40 ing "a for exposing the normally concealed ticket The tickets are sequenat 20 for the identifyingcharacterli. tially .numbered as indicated readydetermination of the number of tickets sold identified'by a serial number 2| for determining the particular reel from which the tickets were dispensed. l A separate ticket of another form is illustrated in'Figure 5 in which the plies Ila and Ila are initially formed from separate strips and said strips are sec together along their longitudinal edges as by stitching and indicated by the reference character 22, the structure of the double ticket otherwise remaining the same as in the form of invention illustrated in Figs. 1 to 4.

In the form of ticket strip S shown inFigure 6, the ply I 0b of each ticket B is provided with an arcuate slot Ila adjacent one end and the weakened lines l8 shown in. Figs. 2 and 4 are omitted, a strip being torn from the ply lob as by inserting a finger nail in the slot lla for exposing a concealed identifying character.

From the above detailed description .of the invention, it is believed that the construction and operation thereof will at once be apparent, it being noted that the selected prize winning characters or symbols l6 carried by the ticket ply II are normally concealed from view andaccess thereto is obtained by tearinga window openingl9a in the overlying ticket fly it. The tickets are sequentially numbered so that it may be readily determined how many tickets have been dispensed from the reel R. The tickets of a reel "carry-the same serial number for identifying the tickets w tha particular reel.

While'there are herein shown and described the preferred embodiments of the invention, it

is nevertheless to be understood that minor changes may be made therein without departing from the spirit and scope of the. invention as claimed.

I claim:

1. In an-admittance strip ticket, a ticket of doubleply construction having normally concealed indicia. on the inner face of one ply, and atearing tab carried by the otherply for producing a window opening to expose the concealed indicia, the ticket being formed of a single blank folded on its longitudinal axis with the free side edges secured together, the formation of the tearingtab including the provision of a narrow slot extending across the plyadjacent one end.
