    Aladdin's Castle

    It appears that Aladdin's Castle was owned by Bally's, the gaming machine people. Not sure if this was an advertisement token or a token
    used in their machines.

    If it's about quarter size, it's probably a game machine token. Aladdin's Castle arcades, a chain founded in the 1960's, was sold to Bally Mfg. Corp in 1974, and resold to Namco in 1993.

    Aladdin's Castle used to be a topless bar in Corpus Christi Texas many years ago. They gave out these tokens for use in the bar. I have several of them I found down there.

    Yea Justgeese, it was one of the more interesting places to detect. The problem was, you DIDN'T want to take anything back home.

    Well, while it is slightly possible a bar might have used these, the ALADDIN'S CASTLE tokens are modern amusement tokens, video arcade tokens, and were not ISSUED by any bar. They are excessively common (I've probably had 100 POUNDS of them, or more). In my bulk lots, I sold them for under 10cents each, delivered (mixed lots). Sorry, I doubt you could convince the Texas catalogers to list them as TX tokens!

    Wasn't trying to convience anyone. I just thought it was an amuseing fact. I know all about the tokens, but I thought I might throw in a little humorous story about them.
