A game of numbers

Painted black and gold canvas used for gambling, circa 1940. It's large, nearly 45 inches square; has to be to contain all those numbers. I estimate 600 numbers, including 45 comprising the center circle: 16 in the outer circle, 16 in the second subdivided circle, eight in the third circle, four in the fourth circle, then $1. The canvas instructs players on each side that "Checks Must Clear All Lines to Win."
