Vintage 1950s MORE SMOKES 10 Cent Punch Board; NOS Warehouse Find; Never Used Old Stock Gambling Punchboard


Found in storage! This never-used vintage 1950s punchboard in very good, never-used condition! Punchboards were usually found in shops, fraternal organizations, and bars and were used as trade stimulators. A customer would pay a small price to punch a hole, hoping to win a prize. This particular punchboard is called "More Smokes" and is priced 10 cents per punch and paid off in cigarettes.

Inside each of the 600 holes is a tiny slip of paper(ticket) with numbers printed on them. This board offered cash prizes if your slip pictured one of the posted winning numbers, you got 5 packs of cigarettes as a prize!

This punchboard, when all holes were sold, would take in $60. In addition to the packs of cigarettes for certain numbered tickets, it paid out 200 smokes to whomever got the last punch on the board. It's well-preserved and no holes have been punched. The metal punch tool is included and is still sealed in the back.

It measures 10 3/4" long x 10 1/2" wide x 1" thick. It displays wonderfully and is a cool, old, gambling collectible piece! A nice deal for just $26! Bright, crisp, vivid colors with very minor shelf wear/abrasions from decades of storage. Still looks very good and is never-used old stock! A great piece of ephemera!
