In the 1950s casinos used to give potential players - short rolls to entice them to play the slots. If change needed to be made the hostesses instead of giving a player a quarter back - they would give then a short roll of cents. Very few of these ever survived as they were usually used before the player left the casino.
I have seen only a few of these over the years and considering all the casino items that come up for sale these are rarely seen at even big events, I know of 12 casinos that did give these away and at one time had several of each. But now Im down to only a few left - although these are some of the best. Most have very clear graphics - slightly faded, they are intact and the paper is firm but some brittle. These are all unsearched Lincoln cent rolls - The are LINCOLN Wheat Pennies and the others are Lincoln Memorials.
I have only had a few of the El Rancho, Thunderbird or the Riviera. So I put them all in one lot. Great gift for the casino collector or addition to any casino collection.
