Plate features long closed casinos such as Hacienda, Stardust, Dunes, Sahara, Thunderbird, Sands, Showboat, The Mint, Riviera, and many others. I believe there is only one or two casinos shown that may still be in operation today.
The plate is smoky glass with the buildings and lettering being in gold coloring. It measures 9 inches side to side by 7 inches top to bottom.
The center of the plate shows the downtown casinos. Some of the casinos are the Golden Nugget, Mint, Lucky Strike, Horseshoe, California, Pioneer, Las Vegas Club, and others. The outer portions of the plate shows Tropicana, Sands, Flamingo, Fremont, Thunderbird, Showboat, Dunes, Hacienda, Desert Inn, Stardust, Riviera, Sahara, and others.
I am stating the date of "Pre 1977" because I believe the oldest casino featured is probably the Thunderbird. The Thunderbird opened in 1948 and over the next couple of decades it went through several owners. The last owners were named Perlman. The Perlmans sold the hotel in 1977 to Dune's owner Major Auterburn Riddle who changed the name to Silverbird. So, going by that, this plate dated to before 1977.
It's in great condition with no chips, crack, or breakage.
EXPLANATION OF SHIPPING CHARGES:
Google will not include items in their search pages unless a shipping charge is stated or unless calculated shipping is offered. Calculated shipping is very often quoted incorrectly on the postal website, so I choose to post a charge using the east coast as the destination. If you live in or near Arizona, or even in the western 2/3rds of the U.S. your charges may be less and if so I will refund a portion of those charges. If you feel uncomfortable with that, just send me an email with your zipcode and I'll quote you an exact delivery charge.
That being said, buyer to pay no more than $9.95 for USPS Priority Mail delivery charges, again, possibly less depending on your location.
SHIPPING CHARGE INFO:
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased. However, my web 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.
Also, every January the postal service increases shipping charges. This year, many price increases were a bit steep with some package categories adding as much as a dollar on to an already high shipping charge. I try to absorb some of the new charges but that's getting harder with each increase.
International shipping charges also took a tremendous leap. International shipping will now depend on the country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. 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.
