    Flamingo $5 Las Vegas Casino Chip, Fifth Issue, R-8, Circa 1950s. The Fabulous Flamingo is vintage Vegas. Opened originally in 1946, it is the oldest resort on the strip still open. This casino drilled their chips as souvenirs and somehow some didn't get drilled all the way. Obverse looks just like an undrilled chip and reverse just has a partial hole. Only two known like this. Still a premium chip.

    Condition: Almost new, but drilled.
