York Police Chief Don Klug says a man walked into the station Tuesday with the ticket and payment - mounted and framed. Klug tells a local newspaper that the man said he found the ticket among his mother's things and wanted to settle the debt.
The ticket was issued on July 13, 1954, to a vehicle licensed in Oklahoma. The man told Klug that he believed his mother had been visiting York at the time and probably lost track of the citation.
Klug says he plans to hang the framed ticket on the wall of his office in York, about 50 miles west of Lincoln.
