See archives 2010.007.0213 for a sample ticket with 1961 inkstamp that was one-way, but very similar. R.H. Taylor is the Passenger Traffic Manager listed on both. While the copy here is not marked as a sample, it probably was one as the name is stated as Lackawanna, not Erie-Lackawanna. This name means the ticket was probably used before1960.
