Scarce Columbian Ticket for the Java Village Theater, Lot #110
Most times when you see a miscut ticket, it loses value because some small portion of the design is lost. Here's an unusal case: Somewhere that ticket without a significant portion is out there and this is the part with a ticket and then some. I would keep this ticket just the way it is, but a buyer may choose to trim it down to its proper dimensions. An unusual and quite attractive ticket that typically would sell for about $125-150+. We have advised our clients who collect Columbian tickets to seek out examples on ebay and other auctions or sales as it's an excellent time to find excellent prices at very modest prices. When I sold my collection of Columbian tickets in 2008 prices were at a peak and this ticket would have brought as much as $200. Today prices are still excellent if you are patient, bypassing the $500 item and waiting until you find one for $125 or so.
We also have copies of the color catalog excerpt from Heritage Auctions for our 2008 sale including a separate detailed list of all prices realized. Please contact if you would like to order a copy!
