Casino Chip Collectors Show At Riviera

Like irregular coins that somehow escape from the U.S. Mint, production mistakes garner a lot of the attention at a show like the Casino Chip and Gaming Token Collectors Club.

Just ask Kingman, Ariz., resident Bob Hayden. His collection is full of casino chip "errors," with at least one set that he considers to be priceless.

Hayden and hundreds of casino memorabilia aficionados are in Las Vegas this week for the organization's 13th annual international convention and show at the Riviera.

The club's show is one of the rare convention events in Las Vegas that welcomes nonmembers, and admission is $5 to see and swap casino chips, ash trays, dice, playing cards -- anything with the name of a casino on it. Saturday is the last day of the four-day event.

"We'll have about 3,000 members from practically every state and 11 foreign countries," said convention chairman Jim Steffner. "But probably about 4,000 people will come through and look at the displays and do some trading."
