For the second time, Bill has generously sent me something to add to my casino collection. I believe he wouldn't accept any payment from me each time. I am not looking for freebies, but I really do appreciate his generosity. This time, he sent me an old chip from St. Maarten. When it arrived, it was pretty grimy and dirty as casino chips can get. It looked like the dirt had made its way into the clay and some would be there forever. They can get moldy and dirty and impossible to clean. So, I gave it my best shot (most chip collectors are not like coin collectors and will clean their chips if they are not too old). Here is what I got:
Wow. Great chip. Cool mold (the designs pressed into the chip around the outside of the chip). We collectors call it the elephant and crown mold. It is a pretty rare mold.
Hey Bill, I never mentioned but I collect US currency. If you have any large currency please send it to me. I do accept low bills also, I am not picky. Just figured I would throw it out there. PM me for my address.
