Scope & Content Ticket: Jersey City, Hoboken and Paterson Street Railway Co., Hoboken, no date, circa 1899-1901. Printed paper, two sides, 13/16" x 2" wide. Perforation on top edge. Engraved by the American Bank Note Co., N.Y. Serial number: 000.

This item may be the stub a larger ticket or possibly a transfer. While the "000" serial number suggests a file or sample copy, the corner is punched which is not untypical for samples.

The front has a depiction of an electric streetcar (or trolley) along with the facsimile signature of "David Young, Pres." The back has the serial number plus the number "89" and text "Good only within 5 cent limits of Hudson County."

While the late date is estimated as 1901, it could be as late as 1907. See notes.
