Eight rare gambling chips from Earp’s gold rush saloon
Description  

Collection of eight bone gambling chips from the Dexter Saloon in various colors and denominations, measuring approximately 1.5″ in diameter, including two “500” green chips, three “100” white chips, two “50” red chips, and one purple “25” chip. Each bears the denomination etched on both sides, with one side reading “Dexter Saloon, Nome.” Also includes a 3.5 x 2 Dexter Saloon business card naming Earp and his partner C. E. Hoxsie as the proprietors. In fine condition, with various scratches and scuffs as expected with used chips. Excited by the prospect of the Klondike gold rush, Earp moved to Alaska and built the Dexter Saloon in 1899. Business flourished with the influx of treasure hunters and Earp returned to California in 1901, having become rich through his successful business venture. A highly desirable set of these extremely rare relics from Earp’s saloon. Originates from the Dan Hardesty Wild West Museum collection.
