Sands Las Vegas Casino H.N.O. Dig Chips Now Available: All Denominations

A few months back, we told you about some of Las Vegas’s history when it comes to dig chips. To recap, when the Frontier Casino was demolished, there were chips and tokens found in the concrete foundation from the Sands, Pop Oasis, and Pioneer Laughlin among others.

Focusing on the Sands Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, there were a variety of different chips from the 1970s found in the concrete. The ones that stand out above the others are the Hughes Nevada Organization $5, $25 and $100 chips. Each chip will have the H.N.O. text on it. These chips were made during the time legendary businessman Howard Hughes owned the Sands Hotel and Casino.

Below you will find all three denominations for sale. We only have one of the $5 and $100 chip (Both have sold). We have a few of the $25 chip for sale. You can find the details below:
