Casino Royale $1 Token
I remember the whole story as if it happened yesterday. Across the Strip from the Casino Royale stood a large casino/hotel called the Frontier. The Frontier was the only large casino on the entire strip that did not want to sign a union contract. The union did not give in and neither did Mrs. Elardi (name?) This went on year after year. Mrs. Elardi was finally forced into bankruptcy, and all because she was so stubborn. Everyone else was able to live with a union contract, except her. She still had the Casino Royale. I think her son took that over and ran it for quite a few years. The Frontier was bought by Phil Ruffin allegedly for a bargain price. I talk more about him when I mention the Frontier. It is another amazing Las Vegas story. I charge more for this token because of the history.
Reminds me of agent 007.
