I am selling a lot of 27 Misc Collectible Casino Chips, including several international chips, that I collected over about a decade of visiting casinos Domestic denominations range from $0.25 to $5.00. The international chips are from Costa Rica and Cambodia. Many of these chips are still "live" -- they can be used in their casino. See the photos for details.

Condition is Used. Shipped with USPS Priority Mail.

I am continuing to clear out various items and collections from my business -- one of the joys of retirement.

Interesting - I had never heard of Skiddles Casino in Maidenhead before.

I never went there and have no idea how I got this chip. I was in England for Phil Ivey's trial, maybe it was a gift from someone, but I don't really recall.

"Skindles Casino"

Found a reference to a 5/- chip - https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/retro-1960s-skindles-sporting-club-245261956

Under new ownership in 1966 it attempted to appeal to a different clientele with many new features including a casino known as Skindles Sporting Club . The venture was launched with a glittering Charity Ball but it failed and the hotel closed two years later.

Whoever bid $3.14 is immediately my friend.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Please -- evil twins, as previously agreed.

That said, and to not clutter this site with too many auctions, I just posted another --

American Casino Guide Collection 1996 - 2001, by Steve Bourie. Condition is Very Good. Shipped with USPS Media Mail (will send Priority on request)..

I purchased these to get a sense of the historical evolution of comps, advertisement and promotions in Las Vegas. Aside from some minor wear they are in very good condition.

Sorry, I forgot about that.

I'm trying to find the significance of 1.68.

Personally I dump my old copies of the American Casino Guide in the book return at the library, thinking they will go to their room where they sell old books, but they probably throw them away.

Hoping to see something good in an auction soon.

168 is a VERY important number ... that will be your challenge question this morning. Find two interesting facts about the number 168.

As for the collection, yeah, I'm happy to give them to the local book sale, but I thought I'd give collectors a chance first. If it sells for $1.68 I am happy. I'd just like to find a good home.

I have a couple hundred "rack-cards" for casino games I've collected over the years. What do you think I should do with those? I am about to pitch my "table game rack-card" collection.
