SALES OF LARGE SETS OF ANTIQUE GAMBLING CHIPS (100's OF CHIPS) -- COLLECTIBLE SETS AND PLAYING SETS -- MADE OF CLAY, UNLESS OTHERWISE INDICATED


Click here to see my web page of MODERN poker chip playing sets for sale


(If you are thinking of ordering a set, contact me first -- I would then hold it for you, describe it in more details [condition, etc.], and perhaps arrange to send you some sample chips before sending the whole set.  Unlike orders of individual chips, I charge exact postage-insurance on  orders of large sets.  Remember, that all orders are "satisfaction guaranteed" and returnable.)

RACKS FOR SALE: I have chip racks for sale; click here.   If you buy a set of chips here, I could sell you a basic wooden  capacity carousel for $10,mahogany a 300-chip capacity  for mahoganyy $20-$25. ... ... .....I could also sell you a 100-chip capacity plastic, transparent chip box (very box-like and stackable) for $3.00 each. I strongly recommend these boxes -- they are economical. sturdy and  flexible.  They hold the most chips in the smallest odd spaces than any other chip holding device.  This is obvious, but I'll say it anyway:  the transparency of the boxes is a great feature: you can quickly see what chips are inside, and you can hang a nice label inside at the end of the bottom piece and see it from the outside through the top piece.  To see pictures of these, click here, here, and here.

¶ not coded by Seymour because this is not a generic poker chip; rather it was used at the Meadowbrook Club, Saratoga NY, 1930's, 40's.  This and other sets here will look great with a gaming table display.

¶ PM-HQ-Crossed Flags, antique chip code.  Valuable, rare, exquisite crest and seal inlaid poker chip set that you will be proud to own and show.
Click here to see all three colors.
¶ very fine condition.  No problems such as nicks, uplifting inlays, warped, stained, etc.  Just some light soiling on some chips from gentle use, which you could  clean, but why bother?  Also, note: all of the chips have that blue "tinge" in the center, which is actually a blue highlight, which is  part of the printed design!
¶ the chips are about 75 to 100 years old, though they show the 24-star flag of the U.S., used during the period 1822 to 1836, after Missouri was  admitted to the Union.

¶ round edged chips.

¶ MINOR PROBLEM WITH THE COUNT:  Reds: fine -- no problems --there are 100 mint reds... ....  Whites:  OK -- there are 99 mint whites plus a used white "R.".. .... Blacks: There are only 196 black R's, but to make up for the difference, I can offer you 5 black square-edged inlaid Anchor design chips (same thickness as the round-edged chips), or these used POD-R's: 1 white, 2 red, 3 blue -- see all the colored chips in this picture; click here.  Or you can have some black square-edged Fleur de Lis chips -- click here.

¶ CREST AND SEAL PWCM Club.  The inlays are NOT die-cut, rather the black clubs are "lithos," printed onto the round white inlay.   In the 2002 supplement to "Antique Gambling Chips" they were coded PWCM Club, inlaid litho, in the Poker Wheel & Faro section. All chips are uniform, original set.  Till I found these a few months ago, only three colors of these were known and no one was selling or trading any. You'd be getting a fine antique crest and seal playing set for less than $2 per chip.  How many people have an antique crest and seal playing set?
¶ these are true crest and seal chips since the rim mold is flat/plain, there is the litho inlay, and the chips are clay.  However, there is no sealant over the entire chip as is the case with the "classic" type of crest and seal chip.
¶ nice used square-edged chips.  No problems other than some soilage from use; you might want to clean the set.  The scans make the chips look more vibrant than they are in real life, especially the 25 salmon-pink chips (they look orange-ish in the 2nd and 3rd scans) and the  75 lavender chips (they look pink-ish in the 2nd and 3rd scans; actually they are a true lavender).

Engineers Club, Brooklyn NY. I just acquired some of these 1920's USPC Co.-made die-cut inlaid chips made for the Engineers Club of Brooklyn NY. The sample-order book pages of the USPC Co. states for these chips "Re-Ordered 11/19/23." And hand-written in script on the page is also "Engineers Club, Brooklyn."  There is no earlier page found, so these chips are from 1923 or earlier.  (It is difficult to read the script [dark ink on a dark page] so some have mistakenly read this as "Eugene Club," a mistake easy to make, but on close inspection it is definitely "Engineers Club, Brooklyn NY." ).  Note, in the picture of that page (see link just below), to the left of the bottom of the blue chip [discolored by scan setting] is "Enginee...", and to the right is "...lub. To the left of the red chip is "Broo...," and to the right is "n... N..." (Click here to see that inscription.)   Whoever buys this set, I'll include my original USPC color photo card of the page that documents this chip, the card with the Engineers Club inscription noted above.... ... ... New Find.  I believe I am the only person who has these chips. See page 29 of Herz' USPC Co. Guide.
¶ I show 20 of the chips, selected at random, here.  There you can see all the colors.  They are round-edged, used chips.  Nice old set. Some inlays have yellowed.  The browns are very nice.  The blues are OK too.  The whites are not bad, just soiled some from handling.  Some of the reds are very fine, some are faded some.  The yellows show signs of handling, and some have some pencil markings on one side, but are OK used chips.  No major problems, such as lifting inlays, cracks, edge nicks, warping, etc.  Another picture here.

¶ mint/unused set.  The chip isn't very rare, but you could search a lifetime to find a 200-chip set like this in mint condition. The chips are round-edged with the original factory sheen.
Click here for a picture of the chips.
¶ ONE LITTLE PROBLEM: there are actually 201 chips that you will be receiving (click the link above for the picture; the monogram inlays are, of course, on both sides of each chip): 50 mint red F's; 50 mint white Fs; 49 mint yellow Fs, plus a slightly duller yellow F chip, plus a mint yellow K chip (same size, color, thickness, round-edge, etc.); and 48 mint blue F chips, plus 2 mint blue K chips (same size, color, thickness, round edge, etc.).
NOTE: 100 MORE F's FOR SALE: I recently picked up another 100 F's that I could sell -- 75 whites, 10 reds and 15 yellows!

In addition to those listed, I have more for sale.

¶ note: the beige (natural) and whites are similar and would be used for the same denomination in a poker game.

¶ ACW-Po Do (Peau-Doux), p. 232.  Embossed.
These chips come in their original "Peau-Doux" faux leather two-drawer chip case.  Design is that of the head of a Boston Terrier.  It is like this set:  click here and click here  Dale Seymour's "Antique Gambling Chips" dates the chips from 1938. "Peau Doux" (and "Po Do") is a brand name of many product lines, and the logo of the famous Walgreen's drugstore chain.   By 1930, Walgreens had well over 500 stores and quickly was becoming the nation's most prominent drugstore chain. Click here to read about Walgreen's and the Po Do line and logo.  That Boston terrier face was famous and appeared on many products and advertisements.

¶ Victor design.  The book "Antique Gambling Chips" identifies this engraved chip as PSV-Victor, c. 1905.  That is the date that these engraved-style poker chips first appeared.  The chips are round-edged and a generous 1-9/16" diameter.
¶ I must have put this set together from two sets of Victor chips. They are all the same size and design, though.  Generally very nice condition for these used chips -- good paint in the engravings, no cracks, edge nicks or warping.  Relatively clean.  Click here to see 16 random chips.  A few chips have some burns, as is one of the yellows in the picture.  Some of the reds and whites are more worn than the others and have lost a considerable amount of engraving paint (note the reds in the picture).  The yellows are particularly nice.

Old Faithful club bar, Livingston, Montana, 1920's.  This is an embossed set of "Good For  In Trade" "tokens" which were used for illegal poker games at the saloon, a common practice in the early and mid 20th century.  Click here to see pictures of these antique chips and to read the story about the club bar.  All of the chips say on one side: "Old Faithful (club symbol) Livingston Mont.," as pictured on the left  On the other side they say: "Good For (so many cents) In Trade."
¶ These chips are all from the same set and have the same 1-1/2" diameter, yet, production being what it was in those old days, the denominations vary in thickness.  Each color group has the same thickness, but the reds, for example, are thinner than the other colors.
¶ The chips are in nice condition (no nicks, warping, cracks, etc.) except in one important respect -- most of the chips have numerous small burns on them (I guess from cigarettes left on the stacks of chips).  The brown and green chips are in excellent condition -- no burns.  The gray chips are not so bad.  The reds, though, have numerous small burns.

¶ these chips are from the illegal Pigeon Club that operated in Brooklyn NY in the 1960's, per Jordan Berk, owner of  Bazaar Supply, a gambling supply house in Yonkers, NY (now out of business).
¶ as noted to the left, 175 of the chips (all yellow) are warped.  100 are warped severely; 75 are not so badly warped -- those are stackable, for example. Also, some of the yellow chips are hot-stamped VAL instead of the picture of the pigeon.
¶ the chips are all: used, hot-stmped, have edge spots, have the diamond-square-squrare rim mold design.... ... ... The white chips have blue edge spots; the blue have orange e.s's; the yellow have red e.s's; and the black have yellow e.s's.  Click here to view all four types of chips.
¶ Important: all have the hot-stamped pigeon, as seen on the chip to the left.  However, due to use and wear, the pigeon design is quite faint on the chips and is difficult to discern on many chips (the one pictured here is exceptional).
¶ I am willing to divide the set, say sell 575 chips.
