So I was wondering if there was a primary and secondary set, since there are two 5's, 25's, and 100's ? Anyone have any dollars ??

Trying to find definitive history on this place is a nightmare. From what I can tell:

Jancho Enrique Irausquin Boulevard 79:

1968-1980 Aruba Sheraton
1980-1981 Grand
1981-1982 Hart Sheraton Casino
1983-1999 Palm Casino
2000-? Aruba Grand Beach Resort/Casino (Centurian casino)
2007-? Riu Palace (Cool Casino)

Yet there is a post card dated 1984 showing Aruba Palm Beach in that same building: http://www.themogh.org/cg_pix/aw/115924.jpg

Was located next door to the Casablanca Casino (Jancho Enrique Irausquin Boulevard 77), which has a pretty storied history as well.

I have never seen any dollars. This was a pic. I saved from Chiptalk when I was trying to get a set of these (I forget who posted it) showing the primary and secondary sets. I miss those $25s already.

I'm not sure if we even know which is which. The top 5s are the ones in good condition - the bottom ones are really beat up. The other denominations are all in good condition.

I think primary chips are the bottom row, but nobody really seems to know much about any of them. Never seen a $1 chip in the wild, and only one version in photos.

sounds like the bottom row is primary, based on used 5's
