Ivory Chips Find, March 2015

� The first two chips listed below look like they came from the same set.  The first three chips listed below are new-found designs, destined to be coded.

� For the Five-Ovals chip and the Double-O chip,  I can show you a scan of a lower quality one for less money.

� Upon request, I am happy to show you the front and back of the very chips I have for sale to you.

� I got these together from a lady in Edgewater, Florida.  She said, "My husband and I own a vintage jewelry shop. Recently we purchased a storage tub of vintage jewelry sight unseen, and found ivory poker chips lying in the bottom... ."

order by name or number

� 1-1/2".
� very good condition.
� I have very few of these, and the design is unique.  I know of only 17 existing, several of which have cracks.  Quite a number sold already.  I have several left in good condition.  One per customer.
� likely this chip is part of a set with the "5" below.

(Officially coded
� 1-1/2".
� good condition, paint may be missing in places along the edge.
� unique design.  I know of only 3 (rare) ivory chips with the "5" in an oval, and I know of even less with those 3 little rectangles within the "5."
� likely this chip is part of a set with the "Red-Ball-Oval" above.

(Officially coded

� 1-1/2".
� good condition other than some dirt stain on part of the chip.  Good chip, and "Return Privileges" on everything.  Ask for a scan of your chip, though unnecessary.

(Concentrics are
no longer coded)
� 1-1/2".
� nothing chip, just showing it because it came with the above three chips.
