    Harvey's Wagon Wheel $25 Lake Tahoe Casino Chip. Ninth Issue, R-8, Circa 1950s. Harvey's, now one of the lake's premier hotel casino destinations, opened as a Saloon in a small wooden building in 1944. Soon other small casinos began to open nearby. Owner Harvey Gross and wife put the South Shore of Tahoe on the map with great promotions over many years making the South Shore a destination, primarily in the summer months. Larger casino enterprises opened there to compete. In 1961, the first high rise on the lake was built at Harvey's. For years Harvey's competed with Harrah's, at one time being right next door. Finally Harvey's sold out to Harrah's in 2001. This casino issued many wonderful chips which are all highly sought by collectors. With the many rarities to collect, a Harvey's collection is a fun challenge. A sharp looking, oddly-colored, classic '50s chip sure to stand out in your collection.

    Condition: Sharp and appears New other than some very light, apparent glue residue on one side. Perhaps this was mounted to something with glue or possibly this took place in the manufacturing process as glue adheres the inlay to the chip. Chips were made to be used and not made to perfection. Some very minor rim nicks.
