#49 - red Lion Motor Inn, was used at what is now Gold Country, until 1982, whne the new Red Lion Casino opened across the street. As far as I know, they were removed from the tables in 1982, and in 1988 used as filler for the foundation of the new addition to Gold Country. Don't let book value fool you on this one. When was the last time you saw one for sale?
#79 - Nice pie with C&J H&C
#82 - Once removed from the tables, but returned for a breif period in 1986-88, now gone forever? New owner brought these out of the vault, while the newer chips were removed from the tables. Now an all new set, except the $100's, is on all the tables. My guess is that while most of these are heavily worn, they must have found some new 1977 chips in the vault. This one is almost unused, sharp edges. Any discoloration is molded into the chips. As for the $1 blue. It hit the tables in 1987-88 and is already gone. Spelling is wrong "Stockman's" and it was replaced by the new design in the Spring of this year.
