Definitions of PRICKING NOTE
Sort: Oldest first
Where goods intended to be exported are put direct from the station of the warehouse into a ship alongside, the exporter fills up a document to authorize the receiving the goods on board. This document is called a "pricking note," from a practice of pricking holes in the paper corresponding with the number of pack- ages counted into the ship. Hamel, Cust. 181.
