In Response To: Re: Does that mean fake? ()

Though not as big of a + for our collecting hobby if they would have been authentic, vintage, El Cortez casino chip Keychains per the reaction stemming from the original post per Walter D. (Really???) as far as availability for collectors -- there just might be a bit more of awareness once the El Cortez promo actually takes place as to what is most certainly possible in our hobby along with how such finds can make our hobby even much more fun as was the case with the Atlantic City Playboy chips discovery of what most of us knew what existed and not all that easilly obtained, prior... or, on a smaller scale; when the hobby knew for over 100 years what existed via pricelists in 1990 (Cercle Arfistique-Paris) and newspaper articles-100 years to that (Cercle Int'l.-Vichy) and then surfacing with additional denominations never being reported or found in manufacturer records.

It's a Big hobby and, along with how it has been unfolding of late, one can consider the fact that we have been fortunate for having those who shared their finds with us...
