  B.P.O.E. CHIPS FOR SALE



¶ I am always in the market to buy BPOE (Benevolent Protective Order of Elks, or Elks Club) chips, both for inventory for this page, and for my singles collection.  You'll know what lodge numbers I DON'T HAVE by going to this page , which lists the lodges I HAVE BPOE chips from.  Also on that page you will find links to BPOE Lodge Locators -- a search engine and lists of BPOE lodges in numerical order, so you will be able to ID your BPOE chips as to the town and state of any BPOE numbered chip.

¶ The table below lists all of my BPOE duplicates, which are all for sale.

¶ The lodge number, town and state are indicated in columns 1 and 4.

¶ If I bothered to take a scan (100 x 100 pixls) of the chip, it is in column 2.  The crest and seal chips generally have a picture of an elk head on the reverse side.  Every chip in this list, whether crest and seal or not, has "BPOE" and/or an Elk head on one or more sides, thus "proving" it is a BPOE chip.  None have a mere number and a dealer's "word" that it is BPOE.

¶ In column 3, I indicate whether the chip is hot-stamped (hs) or crest and seal (C&S).

¶ The sales price per chip is in column 5.

¶ Everything else important is in column 4: city and state of the lodge; the colors/denominations of the chip I have for sale (if different or in addition to the one pictured); the condition if it is other than fine-OK-normal average use; the rim mold design; etc.

ORDERING INFORMATION: click the link at the top of this page -- basically, it is a flat $3.00 for postage-insurance.  Return privileges.  PayPal is OK if not funded by credit cards.

¶ Greenwood MS
¶ red -- with the chain mold
¶ rare,  but two problems: (1) cracked and glued; and (2) has "854 on both sides -- that's it --no Elk Head, no "bpoe" or "elks" inscription.  Usually I would be skeptical of chips with just a number on them, for usually there is no sure way of knowing they are BPOE's; the number could just be a street number. But in this case I firmly believe they are BPOE's as the seller comes from Greenwood MS and he has sold the standard BPOE crest and seals from lodge 854.
