These two coins are great to have side by side. It is hard to say exactly how the address was printed incorrectly, but I believe the first coins they created had the address mistakenly printed as “711 W. Las Vegas”. You will notice the second coin has “Colo. Springs” at the top. This was most likely to clear up any confusion, but they still got the address incorrect. They had to fix the sheet of stickers with a typewriter.
The Sticker Reads:
1. “Club Las Vegas Dancing Nightly 711 W. Las Vegas”
2. “Colo. Springs Club Las Vegas Dancing Nightly 711 E. Las Vegas”
The coin I would really like to add to this collection is the one where they got the address correct, though to-date I have not seen that coin. These coins are fairly hard to find, but I have seen a couple others on auction sites.
I believe these Sticker Dollars are from the late 1950s most likely when the club opened. I was able to track down newspapers from Colorado Springs from January 1960 where police were called to the club on a domestic issue. I was able to track down an ad for the club in a June 1968 newspaper.
The ad reads:
DANCING Nightly UNTIL 2 A.M.
SUNDAY Til 12
At The Club Las Vegas
711 E. Las Vegas
HAPPY HOUR 7 TO 8 NITELY
Country and Western Music
