On this page I will feature different tokens that I feel are either difficult to find or are exceptional in condition. This 1st token fills both categories.
1971 Caesars Palace $.50 token

65 Cactus Pete's Token
My special this month is a 1965 $1 Slot token that was made for the Cactus Pete’s Casino located in Jackpot Nevada by the Osborne Coinage Company of Cincinnati, Ohio.
These tokens have silver highlights that have darkened with age. They were struck from an alloy metal called Silveen. Most of the tokens that were made in 1965 for the different casinos by Osborne Mint were made out of this material. Beginning in 1966 many casinos had new tokens made by the Franklin Mint out of nickel alloy metal. Tokens that had been made out of Silveen were recalled and destroyed by the casinos. The few remaining have increase in value over the years and are hard to come by. I have only a couple that I will be selling this month for a special price of $35.00! These tokens are a little darker in color then the scan shows but are in very good shape. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
