This postcard shows the front entrance at the Sands Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas Nevada. It is dated on the back as being from 1954. You can also tell from the models of the vehicles in the parking lot that this is from the 50s.
The description on the back of the card states:
The Sands Hotel, Las Vegas Nevada
The superlative Sands Hotel is done in the latest Bermuda modern style of architecture and is the "lucky seventh" of the fabulous strip hotels.
Other statements on the back include:
Copyright Ferris H. Scott, Santa Ana Calif, 1954
Color photo by Desert Sea News Bureau
Micro-Krome card by H.S. Crocker Co. Inc, San Francisco 1, Calif
The card number is 7A.
The card measures roughly 3.5 by 5.5 inches and has great 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 am not a postcard collector and don't know how to 'rate" postcards. Personally, I think the card is in great condition for being around 60 to 70 years old. There are no bends, tears, or cracking. On the front of the card, mainly the upper right, there is an extremely thin strip of white at the very edge. It's almost as if the picture didn't quite make it to the edge so I research this and did find where that was quite common years ago. The card is postally unused and has not been addressed or written on.

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.
