THE HORSESHOE CASINO/CLUB - REPOST

PLEASE NOTE:

Our Jim Reiley suggests that the chip shown there and below may be from a real casino. Note his attribution. My information came from two sources: 1) my own purchase of the series from Paulson's @ 65 cents each and 2) from the Gaming Table [p.122] which lists the Horseshoe Casino as being a fantasy casino--though noting that the real Gardena Horseshoe was known both as "Club" and "Casino." Lest I get hit with the very libel I earlier reposted, I would appreciate it if those more knowledgeable would comment on the chip.

Hi Travis ---- FTIW, the Jung-Pfaender
guide lists the Horseshoe Club and the
Horseshoe Casino (both in Gardena) as
separate places (also lists other
Horseshoe Clubs in Chico and Sonora, as
well as a separate place called "The
Horseshoe Club" in Gardena. The
Horseshoe Club Gardena chips are listed
as (mostly) small crown mold, while the
Horseshoe Casino are all H&C except one
$1 chip. Although the $100 & $500 chips
have the notation "Believed to have been
remade", there is no such note for the
other denominations and no indication
that the authors consider these fantasy
chips.

Have taken the liberty of cc'ing Mel
with this message: Mel, perhaps you
could check out this lot and let us know
what you think of the chip. Thanks.
