Why order this 1940's Barrel of Jackpots 10 Cent Punchboard?
Let this punchboard from the 1940's take you back to the World War II era. Punchboards became a popular form of gambling in the 18th century. They typically appeared in taverns, and patrons would pay for a chance to punch a hole and see whether it contained a number for one of the prizes. In the 19th century, the boards declined in popularity when operators began drilling holes into their own boards and thus preventing patrons from winning. Late in the century, though, the boards went through a resurgence in popularity as new ones that papered over both front and back were introduced.
This punchboard dates back to the 1940's, putting it toward the end of their reign of popularity. Views toward gambling changed, and several states enacted legislation banning punchboards. This one is made of wood and remains in Excellent condition. This piece weighs about three pounds and is 24" x 16". The board is perfect for gambling and gaming themed collections, as well as collections of items that date back to the Second World War and the period immediately following it.
