Here’s one I don't see on the Chipguide Florida page: The
illegal Riviera that was on one of the Sunny Isles near
Red chip, 3 light blue inserts, hot-stamped "R" with
an odd hearts-and-squares mold.
The Riviera holds a special place in my memory: it was the
first casino I ever saw! I must have been about 6 years
old and visiting with my grandmother and grandfather, who
took my parents and I from their home in Hollywood to Miami
Beach via A1A. And we passed this creepy boarded-up old
building where the road going down the peninsula was fenced
off with a big chain between posts. My grandparents said
it was a casino that had been owned by gangsters, and it was
The building stood for quite some years (wonder who paid the
property taxes?) but became damaged in various hurricanes,
and by around 1964, I think, it was torn down. Don't
know what's there now as we moved from Florida in 1965.
Around 55 years passed, during which time I forgot the name of the
old casino, but eventually I took an interest in collecting
chips and decided to research it. "Riviera" it
was, same name but presumably not ownership, as another
Riviera Hotel in Miami Beach.
And when this chip came up on eBay, I decided to bid on it – and won!
A "red" chip would today be a $5 gaming piece, but I
don't know how it was played in the old days.
- don't know if this counts as a "harvesting
story" but you are welcome to use it if you

MY FIRST TRIP TO HARLOW’S IN GREENVILLE WAS ABOUT 7-8 YEARS AGO. NANCY AND I HAD BEEN TO TUNICA, AND DECIDED TO DRIVE DOWN STATE MISSISSIPPI FOR A FEW HARVESTS; WHICH INCLUDED THE NEWLY OPENED HARLOW’S.
ACTUALLY THERE IS NOT A LOT TO RELATE ABOUT THIS TRIP OTHER THAN THE FACT THAT I DID DO A LOT OF HARVESTING ELSEWHERE, ALONG WITH HARLOW’S.
LET ME DESCRIBE THE FOYER/LOBBY PART OF HARLOW’S A BIT; THOSE OF YOU THAT HAVE BEEN THERE YOU CAN REMEMBER THE RED VELVET ROUND SOFA, THE VELVET CHAIRS, THE GAUDY GOLD FRAMED MIRRORS, THE ATROCIOUS REST ROOMS. THIS PLACE LOOKED LIKE THE WAITING ROOM IN THE LOCAL *****HOUSE. (USE YOUR IMAGINATION).
THE MEMBERSHIP CARDS WERE AVAILABLE JUST AS YOU ENTERED THE CASINO, SO THAT IS THE NEXT THING WE TURNED OUR ATTENTION TO, THEY WERE QUITE COOL.
I WENT IN AND FOUND SOME FRIENDLY BLACK JACK TABLES, SINCE THEY DID NOT HAVE POKER AT THAT TIME. I COLLECTED MY DUES AS ANY GOOD BLACK JACK PLAYER CAN DO WITH THE DOUBLE DECK BLACK JACK. MEAN WHILE NANCY FOUND HER FAVORITE MACHINES; SO SHE WAS NOT IN ANY HURRY TO LEAVE THIS CASINO. WE SPENT ABOUT 2-3 HOURS THERE ALL TOLD, I MADE SEVERAL DOLLARS OVER MY CHIP HARVEST HABIT SO IT WAS A VERY PROFITABLE STOP. NANCY DID NOT FAIR AS WELL AS I DID; SO SHE WAS THE ONE THAT CAME BY MY BLACK JACK TABLE AND MADE HER REQUEST TO LEAVE. AS I REMEMBER THEY HAD THEIR BLACK JACK TABLES IN THE MIDDLE OF THE CASINO AND BANKS OF SLOTS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE TABLE, A NORMAL AND FUNCTIONAL SET FOR A CASINO.
I WAS GLAD WE MADE THE TRIP, BUT WAS READY TO START HEADING FOR HOME. I DID GET ENOUGH CHIPS FOR MY TRADER INVENTORY AND MY COLLECTION…REGGIE

I am always trying to put things together that have some semblance of balance. Of course, that will always be in the eye of the beholder. Some of these may attract you the collector a little or a lot, no matter which way it attracts, please know I am always trying to help you out, with items you want at price that is fair. For now, I am going to do them every week, but as an unscheduled surprise feature…Thanks for looking. Reggie
If you have some ideas about compatible pairs please send them in to me. If it is possible and I happen to have the two, they will be put on the docket...reg
Add one dollar for shipping, unless you have a hold service with me

MANY YEARS AGO I STARTED MY POSTING, BY POSTING “A SET OF THE DAY” I THINK I HAD ABOUT 300-400 SETS ALL TOGETHER. THAT WAS A LOT OF FUN BACK THEN. AND WHEN I STARTED DOING “A PAGE A DAY” I INCLUDED BETTER SETS AS A CATEGORY.
BUT NOW; RATHER THAN HAVING MY BETTER SETS CATEGORY, I WILL START HAVING A REGULAR SET OF THE DAY WITH MY OTHER FEATURES WHEN I DISPLAY A “PAGE OF THE DAY”.
I AM REDUCING PRICES ON MOST OF THESE SETS, SOME WILL BE FACE VALUE, SO IF YOU SEE SOMETHING YOU LIKE AND WANT, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE IN SENDING ME AN EMAIL, PUTTING A SOLD SIGN ON THE CB IS NOT THE WAY TO GUARANTEE YOUR PURCHASE OR TRADE. SEE POD FOR P/H RATES. SEND ME AN EMAIL FOR ORDERS OR QUESTIONS…Reggie
Johnny Z Casino (Christmas 2013) $11 Central City, CO
IT HAS BEEN VERY HARD FOR ME TO KEEP TRACK OF 50 STATES, CANADA, THE CARIBBEAN, WET CHIPS AND MY SPECIAL COLLECTION (CHIPS WITH CARDS ON THEM). I PLAN ON CUTTING THE STATES DOWN TO ABOUT SEVEN + THE WET CHIPS AND, MY SPECIAL COLLECTION (CHIPS WITH CARDS ON THEM) AND CANADA.
WHAT YOU SEE BELOW IS WHAT I HAVE SETTLED ON SELLING. ALL OF THE STATES HAVE BEEN PHOTOGRAPHED AND PRICED. I AM NOT HOLDING OUT ANY CHIPS OF THE STATES, EXCEPT A FEW OF THE CHIPS WITH CARDS ON THEM. IF I CAN FIND SOME OF THESE CHIPS IN MY INVENTORY OR PAGES I WILL ADD THEM IN.
I WILL BE FEATURING ONE STATE PER PAGE OF THE DAY IN THE FUTURE. PLEASE, NO CHERRY PICKING REQUESTS, UNTIL I BREAK DOWN THE STATES INTO INDIVIDUAL CHIPS. IT WILL BE ONE TO TWO YEARS BEFORE I BREAK ANY OF THE LARGER STATES AND WHEN I DO I WILL MAKE AN ANNOUNCEMENT.
A WORD ON WHAT APPEARS TO BE DUPLICATES ON THE PAGES. THESE ARE UV OR MOLD VARIATIONS. I AM NOT GOING TO PULL THESE OUT AT THIS TIME. SHOULD THIS BECOME A NEGOTIATING FACTOR AND THE BUYER ONLY WANTS JUST ONE CHIP AND THE UV’S AND MOLDS MATTER NOT, THEN I WILL REMOVE THEM AND ADJUST THE PRICE ACCORDINGLY.
FOLKS, MANY OF THESE CHIPS ARE ALIVE, AND STILL BEING USED ON THE TABLES TODAY. SHOULD YOU BE NEAR BY A CLUSTER OF CASINOS FROM ANY PARTICULAR STATE, YOU PROBABLY CAN COME OUT AHEAD. ALSO, PLEASE KNOW THAT I CONSTANTLY OVER THE LAST 12 YEARS UP GRADED. I BOUGHT ANY NEW CASINO ISSUES WHEN THEY COME OUT FROM THE LOCAL CHIPPER THAT OFFERED THEM FOR SALE ON THE CHIPBOARD. THANKS FOR TAKING A LOOK-SEE…REGGIE
