Paul S Endy Jr, Legendary Las Vegas Personal Chip
Collected By: A. J. Giametta
Founder Of Paul-Son Dice Co., Las Vegas and Legendary Vegas honoree.
There isn't a person who had anything to do with the gaming industry in Las Vegas–or the world for that matter–that doesn't recognize the company name of Paul-Son Dice.
But how many know the name of the man behind Paul-Son, Paul S. Endy Jr.?
His son (featured on back of chips wrote: "He was known by many names, including Mr. Paulson, the old man, a mover and a shaker, a bull in a china shop, and Mr. Endy. But to me he was known as my father, and I would like to share the story of his life and the legacy to the gaming industry he left behind."
I went to work at the El Cortez in 1965. By 1967, I became the Casino Manager and started doing business with your dad. I became his oldest and largest customer. Over the years, through several more hotels, I gave Paul-Son Dice and Cards over 90% of my business — gaming tables, dice, chips, etc.
Your father was a true pioneer in the gaming supply business. He, myself and my father, Jackie Gaughan, are all in the Gambling Hall of Fame. Your brother, Tom, and I were close friends and my son, John, worked one summer for your company.

Eric, best of luck on this endeavor. I am sure if your father were still alive today, he would be proud of you".
