Front side of card says "$2" in yellow print, above the words "TARJETA PREPAGADA" (prepaid card) and the word "DOS" (two) written in pink, vertically on the right side. These words are on a purple background. The reverse gives instructions, written in Spanish and English, for placing a call using the card. A scratch-off area, that has been scratched off, exposes the PIN (personal identification number) used to place the phone call. A bar code is also present. All text on the back side is written in black on white. The top edge of the card shows perforations where the card was torn off of the hanger on which it was sold. Used by Martha Guadalupe, an employee of the Oakland Museum of California's restaurant, to make phone calls to her family in Mexico.
