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.

SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT POSSIBLE PARTIAL REFUND OF SHIPPING CHARGES:
Every January the postal service increases shipping charges. Previously, shipping charges were based solely on weight and zip code. This year the postal service went a bit overboard. Now, with this year's increase, the postal service has divided the United States in to 8 zones and all packages are charged by weight, size, and destination zone. This latest increase has added an additional .96 cents to up to $2.83 on packages, depending on their destination. I try to absorb some of the new charges and haven't increased my shipping charges in several years, but that's getting harder with each increase.
To complicate things even further, Google will not promote or show items for sale unless they have a designated cost, or unless the seller uses calculated shipping. My web host is not equipped to figure calculated shipping, so I have to quote a shipping charge using the east coast as the final destination and then refund over payments. When I return the overage, I usually do so by including cash inside the package when it's shipped. My feedback page will show verification that I do return overpayments.
COMBINED SHIPPING INFORMATION
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased as long as all items can fit safely into a single box. However, my web host does not have the ability 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 any of 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.
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.
