These may be the only 'key' gold lottery tickets extant in private hands! “Gold Lottery, Lot No. 898, 17th District, 3rd Section, drawn by OM Pratt”, 40 acres “situated ¾ of a mile s(outh) of the Etowah River and 2 miles from the “Alabama Road”. No water marked upon it. Now in Cass County”. This is now in Bartow County, created December 6, 1861 during the Civil War. The lot is in the southwest quarter of the county. Excellent condition. Original gold lottery tickets, handwritten in and for the 1832 Georgia Gold Lottery, though not a single piece is dated. Each is a third of a regular 8 x 11 page, all formatted in a similar manner to the later land surveys with Lot number, district, section, rough outline of the lot with acreage and approximate location. This lottery ticket is for gold a lot near the Etowah River, one of the famous gold-bearing placer rivers. The Etowah flowed very closely to the Chestatee, with the two rivers separated at one point only by the ridge extending from Dahlonega westerly with the old mining town of Auraria centered on its top. The Pigeon Roost and other important mines flanked the ridge to the south draining into the Chestatee, and other mines of lesser importance flanked the north slope which drained into the Etowah.
