I managed to get a little information from Jerry Wall concerning Bill Borland. He promised a longer talk, later.
The fantasy chips that are being offered in the club magazine were produced for Borland at Atlantic Standard in the late 80ís. Howard Herzís book credits the Nevada mold to The Nevada Dice Co. Jerry has no knowledge of the NDC. I meant to ask Howard, but did not get around to it. I have never found a trace of the NDC and did a small amount of searching awhile back. Jerry has the mold.
AS did produce the chips, but Borland Hot Stamped them at night without the other employees being aware of it. Jerry had been buying out Borland over a period of a few years. He told me he gave Borland over $200,000. Borland sold the fantasy chips to Jerry as real chips for $18,000. Jerry believes there was 100 to 200 of each. Jerry found out about the ruse and sued Borland. Unfortunately Borland died before the case was heard.
There is some good news, If you have the Shenandoah .25 and .50 with the name
misspelled ( as I do) They are real error chips. The casino never opened but they were shipped as is, to the casino. Borland did buy them from the owners along with the rest of the rack. Jerry has the bill of sales.
