El Rancho Vegas
"The Missing Link"

I have acquired a small quantity of these terrific chips from the first "Strip" casino --- the El Rancho Vegas! These are attributed to the second issue from the casino under the ownership of C.N. Hilton & Joe W. Brown circa 1943 by Howard Herz. This chip sold at auction in 1996 for $633 and once again at last year's convention auction for $350. It is rated "Z" in the Chip Rack. I have 80 of these chips available for sale. Forty-four (44) I consider as in "GOOD" condition and thirty-six (36) in "FAIR" condition. All of the chips are in good condition with square edges and only a few have very minor dings. The "condition" I refer to above is the condition of the hot-stamp center on either the front or reverse side. You also may notice "VEGAS" spelled as "VAGAS" on the chip. That's how it was on the chip, it's not an error.
Chips will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. The chips in "GOOD" condition are priced at $125 each which includes shipping and insurance. The chips in "FAIR" condition are priced at $50 each, same terms. See the scan below for an example of each "grade" of chip being offered. Initially I'd like to limit sales to TWO per person to give everyone a shot at owning this once extremely rare chip, rich in historical value for those that enjoy the history of their chips more than the monetary value.
