Description

This item was found in a storage unit this month in Scottsdale, Arizona. From our research, it's a very rare item. It was die-cut in early 1980s and presented here in great condition. More about the Casino Chip:

In the late 1970s and early 1980s it was customary for Casino Chips to have a Brass Core to them, die-cut and then the plastic/clay/ceramic material added to them in manufacturing. This item is present to you before that manufacturing or has had the material chipped away.

This specific chip is from one of the Harrahs Reno/Lake Tahoe Casinos and its denomination is $5000.

Rare $5000 Harrahs Casino Chip Brass Core From Reno/Lake Tahoe 1980s

Lot # 1      

This Harrahs $5000 Casino Chip Brass Core is a very hard to find item. It's the Brass Core of a Casino Chip without the colored plastic/clay/ceramic material applied duri...moreng manufacturing. It's unclear if this material has been chipped off or if this core is pre-manufacturing, but after the die cut processing of the cores. These casino chips were used in the Harrahs Reno/Lake Tahoe casinos and are no longer available or manufactured any more as the chips themselves are obsolete and the casinos themselves have been closed. It's of no monetary value outside of the collectors market. Is of interest to casino chip collectors to have a piece of history and be presented with an item that shows how these rare chips were once made in the 1970s and 1980s, for the Harrahs casinos. THE LAST PICTURE IS FOR REFERENCE ONLY AND NOT INCLUDED IN AUCTION ITS JUST THERE TO SHOW WHAT THE FINAL CHIP LOOKED LIKE.
