    Description

    Sands $5 Las Vegas Casino Chip, "A Place in the Sun," Fifth Issue, R-6, Circa 1956. The Sands used this famous logo at various times throughout the years. It returned in the 1960s for the tenth and eleventh issues. Not many "strip" casino chips are available from the 1950s as $5 was a decent-sized bet in those days and most players cashed out their chips before going home. This is a popular chip that creates strong bidding when made available.

    Condition: New. Some of the little chip "dust" speckles on the inlays. Great sharp edges and nice coloring to the inlays.

    For more information about casino chips, please read The Basics Of Casino Chip Collecting.

    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.
