|The picture shows a view of both sides of this Old Coney Island Steeplechase Amusement Park Ride Badge Ticket. The ticket badge is not dated but it is believed to be from around the 1920s. This ticket may have also been used at the Boardwalk of Asbury Park in New Jersey when the Steeplechase was there as well. It is printed in green ink and it has the original string attached. One side pictures the famous Geo. C. Tilyou or to fans more affectionately known as Tilly. The other side has 1 to 25 numbers of which some are punched. The ticket was used. It was found pasted in an old scrap book and there is still some pasted scrapbook paper to be removed. With some care and patience it can be removed. Besides the numbers, it is marked on the two sides as follows:|
GEO. C. TILYOU'S COMBINATION BADGE
35c - 35c
STEEPLECHASE THE FUNNY PLACE
C. I. PRINTING CO.
S. A. CO.
The ticket badge measures 3-1/4'' wide. It appears to be in fair to good used condition with some scrap book paper to be removed and some paper loss as pictured.
