To All Ashtray Collectors

I have been told by an "old time" Nevada ashtray collector that the casino store located next to the Legend Hall of Fame museum in the Tropicana Hotel Casino is selling ashtray reproductions.

The ashtrays have the Silver Slipper, Flamingo, and other casino logos located on it. I don't know if potential buyers are being told the ashtrays are reproductions. However, I do know that once the ashtray leaves the store ONLY those who know ashtrays can tell if its an authentic piece.

I do not collect ashtrays nor could I tell if one was authentic. Common sense tells me these ashtrays will find their way into our hobby similar to the way the Borland chips have. I pass this information along to those who collect ashtrays in hope that something can be done.

If something can not be done. I suggest those who collect ashtrays learn how to tell the real ones from the reproductions very quickly. vbg

Best, Mr."P"
