Las Vegas, NV
1957 to 1989
(Del Webb’s Mint 1966-1989)
Complimentary soap in the new Mint Tower hotel rooms.
The two small souvenir ashtrays to the left show the Mint at different points in time.
The white one shows what it looked like after it expanded to take over the corner where the Bird Cage formerly stood.
The smoke one shows it with the new hotel tower.
What good is an ashtray without your souvenir lighter?
In the days when all the slot machines
dispensed your hoped for winnings in coins, you might get a nifty “Lucky Coin Bag”!
A very rare example of the Minty Piggy Bank!
Here's Minty on a rare piece of slot machine glass!
Slot machine glass showing
the Mint after the tower is built.
Another nice piece of Mint history from the great slot glass collection of
Doug "Cigarman" Smith!
...and yes, that's a comb... in the shape of a gun.
This amber ashtray then shows the view of the Mint with the hotel tower.
Ashtrays again show the passage of time and changes to the Mint.
The clear ashtray to the left is after it expanded to take in the Bird Cage corner and the lower green ashtray shows the original front of the Mint.
