Of course you're 100% correct by saying we don't need this type element in our club, but where and how do we prevent those who are not in the club from turning out their "art?"
Do we just huddle in our little circle repeating the same thing and not be concerned for all chip collectors who may not be in our club or on-line, or do we practice our responsibility as a major club to inform others, such as publishing our finding in collector magazines and in other major numismatic publications which will disclose who all is manufacturing this art? Do we go to lunch with this element and then boast on this board that all good things are set in place in insure us that a certain "W" will be "punched" on all new material produced? Do we change our COE to be more to the point and require whomever sells, produces and exhibits this art should have it "permanently" marked as such (COPY - FAKE)? Or, do we just sit back like bumps on a log doing none of the above... but continue to block those who may want to exhibit real historical casino chips that have been authenticated and slabbed?
Not an easy task by any means, but we must start somewhere; not simply just agreeing with one another about what we don't want. We need a plan......
