Vintage LAS VEGAS CASINO LIGHTER MATCHBOOK Sands Ashtray Stardust The Mint

A lot of vintage Las Vegas memorabilia, including a Stardust Casino matchbook, Sands ashtray, and a never used lighter from The Mint.

For the Vegas collector, this lot is a great buy. We have for your consideration a genuine Sands ashtray, Stardust Hotel and Casino matchbook (with all matches contained therein) as well as a vintage Madison brand lighter from The Mint Downtown Las Vegas. The lighter, it should be noted, has never been used, had lighter fluid in it, or seldom has been out of its plastic case. It is a great find for any Vegas aficionado.

The Mint Las Vegas was a hotel and casino in downtown Las Vegas, Nevada. Opened in 1957, a 26-story hotel tower was added in 1965. In 1988, The Mint was sold and became part of Binion's Horseshoe. The Mint was the sponsor of the Mint 400, the largest off road race from the mid-1960s to the mid-1980s. The Mint was made famous (or infamous) as the first night's stay in Hunter S. Thompson and Oscar Acosta's legendary 1971 weekend trip to Las Vegas, immortalized in Thompson's novel Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. According to the book, they stayed in room 1850.

The ashtray measures 4 1/2 inches in diameter, while the matchbook is 2 X 1 7/8 inches. The actual lighter, outside the case, measures 1 3/4 inches high by 2 inches long and is only 3/8 inch wide. The lot weighs 7.8 ounces.

All three of these items are in very good condition. The matchbook is complete and still has vibrant coloring, the ashtray has only minor scratches, while the lighter has never seen use.

This lot is the perfect gift for any vintage Vegas collector!
