    Description

    Dunes $5 Las Vegas Casino Chip, Eighth Issue, R-8, Circa 1966. Coveted by collectors, this detailed building picture shows the twenty-four story tower completed in 1966. Rarely offered for sale, there are about a dozen of these extant, mostly locked in old time collections and new finds rarely occur. This one, from just such an old collection, is by far one of the better examples we are aware of. A standout chip.

    Condition: Average, but at first appearance looks Slight Used. Just enough of the "crosshatching" or grain has worn off the edges, still over 50% remaining. A few small rim nicks. The small circle in the center of each inlay is the impression from the weight in the center of the chip. All of these Dunes issues have this (as well as many other chips of the 60s era). Great overall colors.
