RMS Mauretania was an ocean liner designed by Leonard Peskett and built by Swan, Hunter & Wigham Richardson for the British Cunard Line, and launched on 20 September 1907. She was the world's largest and fastest ship until the launch of the RMS Olympic in 1911. Mauretania became a favourite among her passengers. After capturing the Blue Riband for the fastest transatlantic crossing during her 1909 inaugural season, Mauretania held the speed record for twenty years.

!! WARNING !! WARNING !! WARNING !! WARNING !! WARNING !! WARNING !! WARNING !! WARNING !!

Fantasy chips are not made by or for a casino, although they may appear otherwise. Fantasy chips are made by independent 3rd parties as either counterfeits, fakes or souvenirs. Fantasy chips are included on the ChipGuide to alert collectors that they are not casino chips and to advise you to proceed with caution. Purchasing fantasy chips, especially those that appear to be real casino chips, may lead to fraudulent sales when your collection is disbursed and encourages their continued production.
