Ticket

Ticket.  A thin cardboard disk prepared by a collector, dealer or curator to record information about a numismatic item. Generally the same size or smaller than the item it

is stored with, tickets are always kept adjacent to the item in a cabinet. A caption, identification or description is written on a ticket for each item (unfortunately in necessarily tiny lettering), sometimes with its price if in the stock of a dealer. Tickets are widely used in England and Europe. In America the two-pocket vinyl holder is preferred where the coin or medal fits in one pocket, the caption card with description in the other.
