HERE IT IS!!!
YOUR CHANCE FOR AN EXTREMELY RARE CHIP FIND!!!
One of the great interests among chip collectors has been the "Disaster Chips" that allow a collector to place a bit of history, a moment of time in their collection. Examples of this have been the charred chips from the El Rancho and Gold Strike fires and chips the divers have brought up from the sunken wreck of the Dixie Duck.
Now, an extremely rare chip is offered for sale with the certified authenticity of there only being 25 of this Las Vegas chip in existence!
Last month, when the Palace Station was hit with the flood that destroyed nearly seventeen city blocks, one of the gamblers was holding twenty-five $1 chips in his hand and was carried by the flood as far as the swimming pool at The Stratosphere. This gambler, through his ordeal, hung on to these 25 chips, and has asked me to offer them for sale. There are thousands of Palace Station $1 chips out there, but these rare chips are the only ones that still show signs of the watery disaster - they are sealed in plastic cases with the flood waters still around them! All of the other $1 chips have been checked at Palace Station by members of the Nevada Gaming Moisture Control Board and were certified as "dried off."
Since this rarity is from a major Las Vegas casino and only twenty-five of these now exist, they will be offered for sale for only $550 each, or $6000 per dozen.
(If you buy a dozen, shipping is free!)
~~~ How do I know this is real flood water? ~~~ An independent lab has analysed the water and certified it is rain water, not tap water.
~~~ How do I know these are the only 25 chips? ~~~ I counted them twice. Wait. Yup, counted them again, it's 25.
~~~ How come these are not in the Chip Rack? ~~~ Because they would make a lousy bookmark.
~~~ Have these been ok'ed by any of the Las Vegas chippers experts? ~~~ Yes, every single one of them said this chip offer is all wet.
