Some lines of history
In 1999, in France we have had Star Wars Lottery Tickets and I have decided to collect french scratched tickets. I didn't know if there have other collectors and I have done some researches on Internet.
On an US marketplace, I bought a big lot of tickets to Valerie Castrianni. Valerie has said me there are Void Lottery Tickets in USA. Since 1999 I collect only Sample Void Lottery Tickets from all the world (S/V tickets in the collector's language). Valerie was also an old member of a US club and since 2000 I am a member of this club : Global Lottery Collector's Society (GLCS #834).
What is a sample void lottery ticket?
A sample void ticket is a mint ticket with the mention "sample" in different languages (example, in France the mention is "specimen").
This mention can be on the front and/or on the back of the ticket.
Sometimes, there is an hole on the ticket and the number ticket finishes by 00000

Catalogs - Lists - Newsletters
For us collectors, it is very difficult to know if we have all tickets from a lottery or a complete set of tickets without information. It's why some collectors have got catalogs, lists or information on the lottery tickets.
Lotteries & printers : if you have catalogs or lists on your tickets, can you send me it? You will enjoy all collectors with these precious information. Thank you so much for your help.

If you are interested, you can buy these catalogs.
My friend David has got a catalog in colours on lottery tickets from Spain, more exactly on Loteria de Catalunya.

A very good source of information ;-) .
