How many pockets are there?

The big problem is the wheel is probably quite biased.

42 pockets in all with at least 4 different kinds of frets. also measuring the worn ball track (ball long gone) means a 24 mm ball (1 inch) was used. If it has any Bias I would guess it was in favor of the house

No, the bias would benefit both the player and the house.  It depends on if you're betting on the biased numbers or not.

I'm also missing 3 frets which i can replace if i can figure out which type are missing from those segments . originally i was going to rip them all out and replace them with all the same fret, but I think that would kill the history of this wheel.

Looks like an antique "carny" sideshow wheel of doubtful provenance.
The travellers sideshows back in the late forties-early fifties, included a lot of scams, tricks and outright swindles, promised much, gave away very little, if anything at all.
The Roving Carnivals and Festivals, brought some cheer to war-torn communities, but the cheats and card-sharps were rife, and there were suckers to fleece at every turn.
The quotation, "A fool and his money, are soon parted" still applies, the games and schemes more elaborate than ever, and the gullible keep believing the stories.

This wheel looks cobbled together. It's not much more than a piece of junk, really.

But have fun with the restoration.

Sorry for my honest opinion.

The fleur de lis looks more like the heraldic symbol for the prince of wales, being three white ostrich feathers.

Could be ostrich feathers.
no worries it was a piece of junk that was on the way to being firewood.
It's had a hard life. Next time there is a funfair in town I'll have to ask them if they know this type of wheel and what the odds on the table was.
