This postcard shows a view of the Nugget Nell bar inside the El Rancho Hotel in Las Vegas Nevada. The card is not dated, but from my research, I'm estimating the date of this card to be sometime in the 1960s. The reasoning behind that determination is the way Berkeley 2, Calif is printed on the back. In 1963 the zone digit (2 in this card's case), was changed to the 5 digit zip code we use today and also state abbreviations were change from the 4 and 5 letter formats to the 2 letter format that we use today.
The front shows the bar and says:
"Nugget Nell" sets the mood for the fascinating "Tongue in Cheek" Western decor of America's Finest Western Hotel El Rancho Vegas".
The description on the back states:
El Rancho Vegas, Las Vegas, Nevada, America's finest western hotel completely restyled by Tom Douglas. Every season perfect, all daytime sports and night life to make Monte Carlo seem dull! Stop at the sign of the windmill for the time of your life!
Other markings on the back are:
Natural Color Card From Kodachrome
Desert Supply Company
Las Vegas, Nevada
A Mike Roberts Color Production, Berkeley 2, Calif.
The card is postally unused.
The card measures roughly 3.5 by 5.5 inches. It's very bright in color. The card has straight even edges. The card has a divided back, meaning one side for the address and one side for writing a message.
I recently purchased a few dozen older postcards at an estate sale. The subjects of the cards are in and around The Las Vegas area. They are of 'old Vegas" and many are of the old casinos and hotels that have long ago been demolished. I do combine shipping on multiple purchases (see shipping notes below), so be sure to check out my other items.
I am not a postcard collector and don't know how to 'rate" postcards. Personally, I think the card is in great condition for being over 50 years old. I can see that there are tiny bumps to the corners, but they are so small that I can't get a measurement.
Buyer to pay $2.50 First Class Mail delivery charges. That cost will cover shipping for up to the purchase of 4 postcards.
NOTE about combined shipping: My website host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Due to claims that merchandise is not being received at various international countries (although Customs tracking verifies the delivery), I will no longer be able to process international orders unless payment is made with U.S. currency, including conversion fees. Orders will be processed after funds have cleared a U.S. bank. PAYPAL WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED FOR PAYMENT ON INTERNATIONAL PURCHASES. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
