Binion's $1 Tokens
I used to drive up to that casino, put a dime in the meter and went inside. Just as easy as can be. The last time I visited, a couple of months ago, the parking attendant asked me for $20. I said no, turned my van around and left. They are too greedy now. It shows, there were not too many gamblers around. Benny had a display of $1 million encased in some kind of acrylic sitting on the gaming floor. Folks used to line up to have their picture taken in front of it. When Benny (Binion) was around I was able to get a steak breakfast for a $1.95 at the snack bar. Gamblers used to be three deep at the craps tables. Not now, the place is not what it used to be after the Binion's sold it. The tokens I saved during my gambling days are pretty rare. I have one complete set only. The rest of them are singles. It is sad what happened to that place. created a separate category for the single tokens.
This token is definitely one of the most popular and hard to get tokens of any of the ones I sell. Very few are available for some reason. I think collectors hang on to them. That will make them go up in price over time. That token on the cover of a fine pocket watch will definitely set you apart from the crowd.
All tokens have been used in actual slot play at the casino and show various amounts of wear. See photo for condition.
All tokens are available from mounting in our Token Pocketwatches.
