From LoveToKnow 1911

BLANK (from the Fr. blanc, white), a word used in various senses based on that of "left white," i.e. requiring something to be filled in; thus a "blank cheque" is one which requires the amount to be inserted, an insurance policy in blank, where the name of the beneficiary is lacking, "blank verse" (q.v.) verse without rhyme, "blank cartridge" that contains only powder and no ball or shot. The word is alsoused, as a substantive, for a ticket in a lottery or sweepstake which does not carry a number or the name of a horse running or for an unstamped metal disc in coining.
