    What do you know about this token?

    I believe this is an advertising token for the Hotel Nevada in Las Vegas, Nevada. I don' see any denomination on it, so, I don't think it's a casino token. It was taco'd and mangled when I found it at a fairly old site. I straightened it a bit so I could try and see what it actually was. Made of aluminum, many of the characters on it are corroded away, but, some are still readable. Other than Hotel Nevada and Las Vegas on the one side, very little else can be made out except for the building details. The other side has the statement "Hot & Cold running water in bath rooms" Since the Hotel Nevada started in 1905, that was probably a good selling point back then! Another area starts out "Modern & ?" In the upper left it starts "Reinfor" It's hard to make out much else except for a letter or two. Octagon shape and 1 3/8" across the flats. I'd sure like to see one in good condition! Any info and value would be appreciated. Just looked it over a bit more.....maybe a fob?

    Could have been worth a free meal in the day. Nice token.
    When you come to a fork in the road, take it.

    Thanks Don, How did you manage to post that link, I tried and it wouldn't let me for some reason. I used to be able to just drag and drop from my favorites, but, not this time.

    Fom that site I referenced, there is enough information in two sentences to give you a date range of your (two story building) token.
    Miller built the Hotel Nevada (often times also called the Nevada Hotel) as a two story hotel in 1905- 1906 shortly after the original auction for the new townsite of Las Vegas. He would later add another two stories to the building and rename it the Sal Sagev at the same time as the construction began on Boulder Dam.
    Don....
