    Description

    Palace Club 2 Reno Roulette Chip, Unlisted. The Palace Club saloon opened in 1888 and closed in 1979. When gaming started in 1931, the upstairs was leased out with Virgil Smith running the poker tables from 1935. This chip likely dates from that operation. This is the popular early 1930s Crest and Seal style poker chip, a highly sought after plain mold with stunning colors. An unbelievable find in 2009 brought many new colors and roulette table numbers to the chip market. There were enough chips to make sets of six which were immediately purchased by savvy collectors. A few extras are available, two in this sale. Twelve rare, in-demand, undrilled chips from a new find indicates that these will disappear off the market quickly allowing values to appreciate.


    Condition: Slight Used plus, nearly perfect with one tiny edge nick from handling.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
