    Description

    Sands $100 Las Vegas Casino Chip, "A Place in the Sun," Fifth Issue, R-7, Circa 1956. Fortunately for collectors, the T.R. King Co. of Los Angeles, the maker of the small and large crown mold for years, saved their old records. They manufactured this beautiful sunburst design chip in 1956 when Frank Sinatra was headlining at the Sands. Earlier Sands chips are extreme rarities, making this the earliest obtainable issue. It's odd to see a white $100 from this time period though this was before the standardized colors of today.

    Condition: Slight Used plus. There is a small (0.25") area on the edge where the clay is not sharp, just slightly rounded. Possibly a manufacturer's blemish from when the clay was cut.
