Unknown treasure in a box of keepsakes
    #2518888 - 04/02/04 02:26 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Work got rained out today so out of boredom I was going through some old shit.  A box of keepsakes from my life.  I had these two old poker chips since I was a kid.  My parents gave them to me as souveniers after returning home from a trip to Wendover, Nevada (we lived in Utah in the 70's).  Out of curiosity I decided to find out if they are collectors items now.  After spending most of the moring doing on-line research and correspondence with several collectors I have my answer....

First chip: State Line Casino $1 chip-  Although it is common amongst collectors it can easily be sold for $30.  And I am also waiting for a response from a collector/expert about a mis-spelling on it.  The city name is stamped wrong.  The chip is actually stamped "WENPOVER, NEVADA".  I'm not sure yet how this will affect its value.

Second chip:  Jim's Casion & Saloon $1 chip- This one is another story.  Although it is not considered to be a truly rare chip it is definately not common.  Even in poor condition this chip can easily fetch $70-$100.  A mint condition chip can go over $200.  I am told that I could easily sell this one for over $100. :shocked:


So whatever you do, don't throw away all that shit you been packing around for 30 years until you check it out!! :eek:

So are you going to sell them now or save them and sell them later?

Holy Shit, just got an e-mail from the collector.  The mis-spelling puts it into the "error chip" category and pushes the price of the chip well over $100!! :eek:

I wish every day off work was this much fun!  Whoopee! :crazy2:

I'm gonna sell 'em.  I'm not the collector type and I'm too impatient to wait another 20 years for the value to double. :tongue:
