    Description

    Holiday Queen $5 Las Vegas Casino Chip, First Issue, R-8, 1971-73. The Holiday Queen opened on the Vegas Strip as a fancy riverboat-shaped casino, one of the early "theme" casinos. In 1973, the Holiday Queen was bought by Holiday Inn Hotels and operated as Holiday Casino until 1990 when Harrah's Corporation bought them out. It was remodeled and reopened in 1992 as Harrah's. All of the Holiday Queen chips are considered very rare. Approximately a dozen of these rare first issue chips are known to collectors. A colorful chip with its scalloped inlay and Riverboat picture!

    Condition: Average plus. Decent edges, just use from the few years these were in play, but no damage other than slight rim nicks. A good solid example.
