She lit a candle and swept the house. And when she had found it, she said, 'Friends, neighbors, come rejoice with me. This my coin was lost and is found again".

    First, a ticket isn't lost until you absolutely can't find it so I would look for it before thinking it was lost.

    Second, unless you play a particular set of numbers, record or make out play slips for your tickets, you have no way of knowing you bought the winning ticket. 

    If the ticket is claimed within a few days of the drawing by someone I didn't know who bought it at a store I had never shopped then I would assume I was imagining things and just forget about it.

    Otherwise I would put in a claimed with all the information I had and hope no one else made a similar claim and an investigation by the lottery might prove my claim was legit.

    All states have a rule, no ticket no prize and more of them are enforcing that rule lately.
