for sale I GOT A FEW OFFERS ON EBAY, BUT DECIDED TO DELETE THE POST THERE AND SINCE I NO LONGER COLLECT DICK GRAVE'S NUGGET CASINO, DUE TO UNAVAILABILITY OF CHIPS AND ITEMS FROM THERE. I WILL OFFER EVERYTHING ON HERE AS A PACKAGE DEAL.

SELLING AS A LOT ONLY, IF INTERESTED PLEASE MAKE AN OFFER. I HAVE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD $1,500 OR SO IN THE LOT TOTAL. NOT LOOKING TO GET WHAT I PAID AS I BOUGHT THEM OVER SEVERAL YEARS. MOST ITEMS I HAVE ONLY SEEN ONCE, SO MORE THAN LIKELY, THEY WILL PROBABLY NEVER COME UP FOR SALE, AT LEAST NOT ON EBAY.

THE PEN AND PENCIL SET, EXTREMELY SCARCE, FEATURES DICK GRAVE'S NUGGET AND THE 1960 WINTER OLYMPICS, WHICH WERE HELD AT SQUAW VALLEY, CALIFORNIA IN 1960. OFFICIALLY KNOWN AS THE VIII OLYMPIC WINTER GAMES. THERE WERE ATHLETES FROM 30 NATIONS, COMPETING IN FOUR SPORTS AND 27 EVENTS. BIATHALON AND WOMEN'S SPEED SKATING MADE THEIR OLYMPIC DEBUTS.

WALT DISNEY HAD AN INTEREST IN SKIING, HE BROUGHT THE TALENT OF THE DISNEY CAST TO BEAR AND CREATE AN OLYMPIC TORCH, WHOSE DESIGN HAS BEEN THE BASIS OF EVERY NEW DESIGN SINCE. DISNEY BROUGHT IN ENTERTAINMENT, BANDS, PAGEANTRY, SECURITY, CREATED THE IDEA OF OFFICIAL SPONSORS OF THE GAMES, STATRED THE CONCEPT OF A GROUP OF FLAG POLES FOR ALL THE NATIONS BEING REPRESENTED, AND OFFERED A FILM FESTIVAL FOR THE ATHLETES EVENING ENTERTAINMENT.
