Good Day Chippers, today I have the $2 variety of chips. There is a nice selection for you should you collect these. Poker players have an affection for two chips because they are often used around the poker tables, both for playing and drop chips. Thanks for checking in with me today, and here is what will be happening with the POD come 2018:
THE SET OF THE DAY HAS GROWN TO ABOUT 150 + SETS VARYING FROM 2 CHIP TO 12 CHIP IN SIZE. I HAVE ADDED SETS FROM MY BROKEN STATES AND ISLANDS. THE FANTASY SETS I ADDED ARE PRICED BELOW MY ORIGINAL COST; AND DID YOU KNOW THAT ALL OF THE SETS ARE ON A REVERSE AUCTION?
THE FIRST POD THIS CYCLE WILL HAVE THE INTRO- DUCTION OF THE TYPES OF CHIPS AND I AM MOVING THE CHIP OF THE YEAR’S IN WITH AZ-NM BECAUSE THEY ARE SHRINKING.
THE INTRODUCTION WILL HAVE 8 PAGES OF MOSTLY CALIFORNIA NON DENOMINATIONAL CHIPS FROM THE 1930’S UP. THERE ARE SOME ABSOLUTELY COOL CHIPS IN THIS GROUP AND THERE WILL BE BUYERS DISCOUNTS AVAILABLE. PLUS THEY WILL BE REDUCED IN PRICE FROM THEIR FIRST SHOWING ABOUT 4 MONTHS AGO.
A WHILE BACK I MERGED A COUPLE OF TITLES TO GIVE THAT PARTICULAR POD SOME EXTRA PAGES AND MORE CLOUT. ONE WAS THE ODD DENOMINATIONS; IT WILL BE ADDED TO THE MISCELLANOUS ITEMS. AND NOW THE ODD DENOMS HAVE GROWN ANOTHER 8-10 PAGES, WHEW…THAT IS A LOT OF PAGES FOR ONE POD. WHICH CAUSED THE ODD DENOMS TO BE SPLIT; HALF WITH THE MISCELLANOUS CHIPS (WITH SEPARATE PAGES OF 5c AND 10c CHIPS) AND HALF WITH THE SMALL STATES (WITH SEPARATE PAGES OF $10, $20 , $25 & $100 PAGES) POD. THE OTHER WAS THE COTY’s; THEY WILL BE MOVED TO THE AZ-NM, AS INDICATED ABOVE; AND DID YOU KNOW THAT I HAVE ONE COMPLETE SET OF THE COTY’S FOR SALE. I WILL SELL IT WITH CREATIVE FINANCING THAT WORKS FOR YOU AND I; IF THAT WAS A PROBLEM.
THE GUEST HARVEST STORY AUTHORS, AND MY HARVEST STORIES HAVE CONTINUED TO BE POPULAR. THE GUEST HARVEST STORIES HAVE INCREASED TO OVER 40.
THE “LOSS LEADER CHIP”, THE WANTED CHIP, AND “A PAIR TO DRAW TO”; FEATURES WILL BE DIS-CONTINUED IN THIS NEW CYCLE.
ONE RECENT ADDITION TO THE POD IS THE POST CARDS. IN EACH POD 2 OR 3 POST CARDS ARE OFFERED FOR YOUR PERUSAL. (ALSO, BE REMINDED THAT I TRY TO POST A DIFFERENT POST CARD DAILY ON THE CHIP BOARD.)
THE NEWEST ITEM INSIDE THE POD IS THE “FEATURED STATE.” THESE ALL ARE FROM MY COLLECTION AND I WANT FIND A GOOD HOME FOR THEM. MORE INFO ON THIS, JUST EMAIL ME ANYTIME.
I AM THINKING ABOUT SLOWING DOWN THE AMOUNT OF POD’S EACH WEEK. RIGHT NOW I AM POSTING ABOUT 3 EACH WEEK. IN THE FUTURE IT WILL PROBABLY AVERAGE 2 A WEEK. I WILL BE POSTING MORE INDIVIDUAL CHIPS EACH DAY.
I WILL TRY TO WRITE AN UP DATE OF THE “STATE OF THE POD” EACH CYCLE. THE LAST POD OF THIS CYCLE AND THIS YEAR WILL BE DECEMBER 23, 2017 REGGIE JANUARY 2018

AT THE TROP CASINO IN GREENVILLE, MS A FEW YEARS AGO, I WAS IN LINE AT CAGE TO GET A PLAYERS CARD, I NOTICED THAT THE LADY IN FRONT OF ME WAS GIVEN 4 NCV/MATCH PLAY CHIPS, SO WHILE I AM GETTING MY CARD I ASKED IF I CAN GET SOME OF THE MATCH PLAY CHIPS. THE CASHIER SAID NO, YOU MUST HAVE A FLYER THAT WAS MAILED TO YOU AND THEN PRESENT TO US AT CAGE. THAT WAS NOT THE ANSWER I WAS LOOKING FOR, SO I FOLLOWED THE LADY THAT WAS IN FRONT ME AND JUST BEFORE SHE GOT TO THE TABLES I ASKED HER IF SHE WOULD SELL ME ONE OF THOSE CHIPS. SHE SAID OK; AND GAVE ME ONE FOR $5. I HAD THOUGHT ABOUT ASKING FOR ALL 4, BUT; THAT MAY NOT HAVE BEEN A SMART THING TO DO, SHE MAY NOT HAVE GOT EVEN SOLD ME THE ONE.
I GO TO THIS CASINO ABOUT ONCE A YEAR. I HAVE A SISTER THAT LIVES IN GREENVILLE, AND I HAD LIVED THERE 20 YEARS MYSELF. I AM STILL LOOKING FOR A PAIR OF DICE FROM THIS CASINO, I NEVER VISITED THIS CASINO WHEN THEY HAD CRAPS AND WOULD PUT THEIR USED DICE OUT NEAR THE CAGE, AS THEY DID YEARS AGO. YOU ARE WELCOME TO EDIT THIS IF YOU WANT; FOR USE IN YOUR FRIDAY HARVEST STORIES
REGGIE, I ALWAYS TIP REGARDLESS OF WHERE I GET THE CHIPS: TABLES, CAGE OR POKER ROOM.

THE CHIP GUIDE GIVES NO CREDIT TO THE LUCKY LIL’S THAT WAS IN HOUSED AT A LOCATION WHERE T. J.’S WAS THE ROOM MANAGER OR OWNER. THIS LOCATION HAD A FEW SLOTS AND WAS CALLED LUCKY LIL’S. LATER THE WHOLE OPERATION MOVED AROUND THE CORNER TO WHAT IS NOW CALLED THE HIDEAWAY. SO NOW THAT I HAVE YOU ALL THOROUGHLY CONFUSED LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT MY EXPERIENCES WHILE I WAS IN THE LUCKY LIL’S IN BOZEMAN, MT.
I WALKED IN THE PLACE AND SAT DOWN IN THE ONLY OPEN CHAIR AVAILABLE AND COMMENCED TO PLAY IN A VERY SPIRITED HOLDEM GAME. I BELIEVE THEY ALSO PLAYED OMAHA HIGH AND TAHOE (3 CARD HOLDEM). THIS GAME WAS A LOT OF FUN, AND I THOROUGHLY ENJOYED IT. WHILE I WAS SORTING MY 3 VARIATIONS OF ONE DOLLAR CHIPS AND THE THREE VARIATIONS OF THE $5 CHIPS THE TALK GOT AROUND TO CHIP COLLECTING AND THEN THE MANAGER OF LUCKY LIL’S APPEARED. (T. J.)
THIS HAPPENED ABOUT 2 HOURS OR SO INTO THE GAME, T. J. CAME OUT OF THE BACK OF THE CASINO, WHERE APPARENTLY THERE WAS AN OFFICE, AND THE DEALER SAID HI T. J. HE ALSO WENT ON TO SAY THIS GUY IS A CHIP COLLECTOR FROM CALIFORNIA. T. J. SAID IS THAT RIGHT. C’MON OVER I HAVE SOMETHING FOR YOU, AND HE GAVE ME ONE OF HIS OLDER $5 CHIPS, THAT WAS MINT. I LOOKED AT THAT AND SAID, WOW; AND REACHED FOR MY WALLET, HE SAID NO CHARGE, JUST TAKE CARE OF IT. AND REMEMBER YOU CAN NOT CASH IT IN ANY WHERE AND THEN HE WINKED, AND SAID I GOTTA GO, IT WAS GOOD TO MEET YOU REGGIE.
THAT PRETTY MUCH MADE MY DAY, I HARVESTED A LOT OF CHIPS I NEEDED AND A FEW FOR TRADERS AND GOT AN HONEST GOODNESS COLLECTORS CHIP FROM T. J.
GETTING THESE ADDRESSES AND DATES STRAIGHT IS NEEDED; BECAUSE RIGHT NOW IT IS NOT CORRECT ON THE CHIP GUIDE…REGGIE

I am always trying to put things together that have some semblance of balance. Of course, that will always be in the eye of the beholder. Some of these may attract you the collector a little or a lot, no matter which way it attracts, please know I am always trying to help you out, with items you want at price that is fair. For now, I am going to do them every week, but as an unscheduled surprise feature…Thanks for looking. Reggie
If you have some ideas about compatible pairs please send them in to me. If it is possible and I happen to have the two, they will be put on the docket...reg
Add one dollar for shipping, unless you have a hold service with me

Postcards shown below are all duplicates and cheaper, especially if you buy the two or three listed, for the current POD. There will be a minimum postage charge of $1. Multiple cards p/h will be determined at time of sale.
#9 MGM $1. MGM 50c, Mizpah $2 All 3 $3
MANY YEARS AGO I STARTED MY POSTING, BY POSTING “A SET OF THE DAY” I THINK I HAD ABOUT 300-400 SETS ALL TOGETHER. THAT WAS A LOT OF FUN BACK THEN. AND WHEN I STARTED DOING “A PAGE A DAY” I INCLUDED BETTER SETS AS A CATEGORY.
BUT NOW; RATHER THAN HAVING MY BETTER SETS CATEGORY, I WILL START HAVING A REGULAR SET OF THE DAY WITH MY OTHER FEATURES WHEN I DISPLAY A “PAGE OF THE DAY”.
I AM REDUCING PRICES ON MOST OF THESE SETS, SOME WILL BE FACE VALUE, SO IF YOU SEE SOMETHING YOU LIKE AND WANT, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE IN SENDING ME AN EMAIL, PUTTING A SOLD SIGN ON THE CB IS NOT THE WAY TO GUARANTEE YOUR PURCHASE OR TRADE. SEE POD FOR P/H RATES. SEND ME AN EMAIL FOR ORDERS OR QUESTIONS…Reggie

#1) Try to be an equal partner in the trade, do not make one party of the trade do all the work.
#2) I try not to do lateral trading. In other words; I do not like to trade any chips I only have one of for another chip I do not have any of; and I have it in my personal collection already.
#3) Commons for commons, Current table chips for current table chips, new racks for new rack.
#4) Denominations should be handled the same as commons, in most cases a $5 chip for a $5 chip.
#5) The obsolete group…these have to be traded based on the Guides valuation. And/or the asking price.
#6) It is always up to the two people that own the two chips that want to trade; to be satisfied with the trade. It is a trade when it is mutually acceptable to both parties.
#7) I prefer to trade with CC-GTCC members, because of the honesty of this group is impeccable. I do and have made trades with non-members.
#8)Try not to send severely nicked, damaged, or extremely dirty chips.
#9) A trading policy, is usually never the same with any two chip collectors, try to briefly explain your trading policy up front as soon as possible, in order to circumvent any surprises.
#10) Always let the trading partner know when you receive your chips.
IT HAS BEEN VERY HARD FOR ME TO KEEP TRACK OF 50 STATES, CANADA, THE CARIBBEAN, WET CHIPS AND MY SPECIAL COLLECTION (CHIPS WITH CARDS ON THEM). I PLAN ON CUTTING THE STATES DOWN TO ABOUT SEVEN + THE WET CHIPS AND, MY SPECIAL COLLECTION (CHIPS WITH CARDS ON THEM) AND CANADA.
WHAT YOU SEE BELOW IS WHAT I HAVE SETTLED ON SELLING. ALL OF THE STATES HAVE BEEN PHOTOGRAPHED AND PRICED. I AM NOT HOLDING OUT ANY CHIPS OF THE STATES, EXCEPT A FEW OF THE CHIPS WITH CARDS ON THEM. IF I CAN FIND SOME OF THESE CHIPS IN MY INVENTORY OR PAGES I WILL ADD THEM IN.
I WILL BE FEATURING ONE STATE PER PAGE OF THE DAY IN THE FUTURE. PLEASE, NO CHERRY PICKING REQUESTS, UNTIL I BREAK DOWN THE STATES INTO INDIVIDUAL CHIPS. IT WILL BE ONE TO TWO YEARS BEFORE I BREAK ANY OF THE LARGER STATES AND WHEN I DO I WILL MAKE AN ANNOUNCEMENT.
A WORD ON WHAT APPEARS TO BE DUPLICATES ON THE PAGES. THESE ARE UV OR MOLD VARIATIONS. I AM NOT GOING TO PULL THESE OUT AT THIS TIME. SHOULD THIS BECOME A NEGOTIATING FACTOR AND THE BUYER ONLY WANTS JUST ONE CHIP AND THE UV’S AND MOLDS MATTER NOT, THEN I WILL REMOVE THEM AND ADJUST THE PRICE ACCORDINGLY.
FOLKS, MANY OF THESE CHIPS ARE ALIVE, AND STILL BEING USED ON THE TABLES TODAY. SHOULD YOU BE NEAR BY A CLUSTER OF CASINOS FROM ANY PARTICULAR STATE, YOU PROBABLY CAN COME OUT AHEAD. ALSO, PLEASE KNOW THAT I CONSTANTLY OVER THE LAST 12 YEARS UP GRADED. I BOUGHT ANY NEW CASINO ISSUES WHEN THEY COME OUT FROM THE LOCAL CHIPPER THAT OFFERED THEM FOR SALE ON THE CHIPBOARD. THANKS FOR TAKING A LOOK-SEE…REGGIE
