CHIP TIPS FOR CHIP COLLECTORS

SHIPPING TIPS

These tips are for new collectors that want to start trading; and possibly a refresher for old timers that are just starting to liquidate their collections. I will try to be as descriptive as possible on these tips. Let’s start small a work up to larger shipments. Also, on the bottom the page some tips on the tips…I can use some additional help with these.
• For one to about five chips you can use the sticky corrugated paper; size it (for a small or large envelope) and press your chips into it. This works wonderfully well and protects the chips, I do not recommend this method for very old and brittle chips. (or HHR/HHL, A-Mold, Tri-Club and this type of chip)
• For one to about four chips, wrap them individually in paper and make squares. Tape to hold the paper closed. Then lay the four chips (squares) on a regular sized sheet, taping them so they cannot move; (doubling the paper helps) and fold it to fit the envelope uniformly and tape the end of the folded sheets of paper.
• For one to about 8 chips, a more conventional way to ship is a bubble mailer, size 000. Use 30 pocket vinyl pages cut down to configure to your bubble mailer, all bubble mailers are not “exactly the same”. Be sure that the chips are completely pushed into the slots and then run a piece of scotch magic transparent horizontally the length of the cut vinyl, to insure they stay in the slots. (make a pull tab for easy removal)
• For one to about 15 chips use a size “0” bubble mailer, with the same instructions as for the “000” above.
• 16-20 chips can be handled in several ways: 1) You can use a size “0” bubble mailer; cut a 30 pocket vinyl page in half and put a piece of small size bubble mailer or plastic film sponge wrap between the two halves. 2) A little more expensive but you can use USPS flat rate large envelopes, these will hold a full page. Either 20 or 30 pocket pages, wrapped in small bubble wrap or plastic film wrap. Be sure and cellophane tape the edges, corners , the seal and address/return address.
• 20-60 chips can be sent via USPS Flat Rate, as described in the second method just above. Also, if you wrap 15-25 chips with a single sheet of paper and tape the rolled chips securely so they will not break open. Place them in the smallest sized USPS box and put foam pellets, wadded paper, or rolled up bubble wrap/film, firmly in between the rolls, seal box and add cellophane tape around the edges and addresses.
• Larger orders up to 150 chips, can be shipped in the USPS small Flat Rate boxes, use plastic tubes, up to 21 in each tube. Use a tiny bit of packing material to be sure each tube’s chips are firm, then tape the lid of each tube closed. Each small USPS Flat Rate box, will hold 7 tubes, add a little packing material. You cannot beat this method price wise. *This can be done with the rolled paper method, and get a few more chips than 147.
• For larger than 150 chips use the tubes and a larger Flat Rate box, with basically the same instructions as above. Insurance is always up to you and the person you are shipping to.

TIPS FOR THE TIPS 1. When cutting up 30 pocket vinyl pages, first cut off the 3 hole binder edge, then cut to the following pocket sizes: 6, 8, 9, 10, 12 & 15 these popular sizes; and result in very little waste.
2. Cheapest mailers, large lots of 100 can be found on line (many sources), sticky corrugated paper @ ULine.com. Vinyl pages are on line @ Wizards.com…and other coin collecting supply companies.
3. Try to remember to put some sort of internal return address in each package.
4. Never, Never put any kind of tape or adhesive on any chip when shipping.
5. Try to save your bubble mailers (all sizes) for re-use.
6. Get familiar with USPS, UPS, Fed Ex and da kind and their mailing instructions on line.
7. Old bubble wrap envelopes can be cut up to re-use the bubble wrap for extra packing.
8. Starbucks and da kind hot cup wraps can be used to send single or small amount chips; staple or tape them inside the oval wrap, then tape to 1 or 2 sheets of paper folded to fit envelope to prevent moving around. Use small or #10 envelopes for a much cheaper postage rate.
9. Please, Please do not ship chips loose in manila envelopes. There are some current sellers on the CB that are still doing this; believe it or not…
10. Send me any tips and information that you think would be of interest to our new collectors.[/bl

A GUEST AUTHOR’s HARVEST STORY

PEPPERMILL CASINO – RENO, NV

By:J ERIC FREEDNER


Sometimes chip hunting overlaps with other casino occurrences which are just to memorable to keep to myself!

Over this past weekend, I was in Reno for the Chip Dig Show and growing tired of losing cash in the slot machines of that city's finest establishments, decided to drive down to the Peppermill for dinner.

That accomplished, I noticed "new" $25 chips all over the tables - actually the 1999 issue showing a roulette wheel, dice and cards, and bought one from an Asian table dealer who probably could not figure out why I wanted one, not to play at his table.

There remained the matter of a remaining TITO, so off I went to the cashier. A man - seemingly the Casino Manager judging by his fine attire and demeanor - was talking to a cashier and, seeing me waiting, motioned for me to step forward. "I want you to give her a real hard time," he said with a smile. "She's retiring and this is her last night working here."

Thinking fast, I asked the grey-haired cashier, "What, are you going to start at the Atlantis?"

The Manager turned around. The other cashiers stopped their work. The cashier said, "No, no, no, I'd never work there!" And then they all laughed heartily. Mission accomplished, and I wished the cashier a happy, well-earned retirement.

PERSONAL HARVESTING STORIES

IMPERIAL PALACE BILOXI, MS

By:RICHARD “REGGIE” GUMMER

ON A RAINY NIGHT IN BILOXI, WE SCHEDULED A HARVEST STOP AT THE IMPERIAL PALACE. THEY HAD NOT EVEN FINISHED THEIR REPAIRS FROM THE DAMAGES OF KATRINA AT THE TIME. I REMEMBER SOME PRECARIOUS CROSSINGS FROM SHORE TO THE ACTUAL RIVERBOAT PORTION OF THE CASINO.
MY MEMORY ALSO IS THAT THE PLACE WAS EXTREMELY CROWED. I HAVE A FEELING IT WAS THEIR FISH BUFFETT. HERE IS A GLIMPSE OF WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT. THEY HAD ESCALATORS THAT SPANNED TWO FLOORS. WHEN YOU WENT UP OR DOWN YOU COULD NOT SEE A PATCH OF THE CARPETING ANYWHERE AND THERE WAS A PERSON ON EVERY STEP OF THE ESCALATORS GOING UP OR DOWN. I THINK THE BUFFETT WAS ON THE THIRD FLOOR.
I WENT UP TO THE POKER ROOM, THERE WERE NO EXTRA CHAIRS FOR WAITING ON THE BRUSH LIST. SO I HAD TO STAND, I HAD ALREADY WENT TO THE CASHIER FOR A RACK OF CHIPS OF WHICH I WENT THROUGH AND THEN I GRABBED A COUPLE OF NICKEL CHIPS. THERE WAS NOT ANYTHING MORE I COULD DO WHILE WAITING FOR A POKER SEAT, AND I SAID TO MYSELF THIS IS RIDICULOUS. I HAD BEEN WAITING OVER AN HOUR, SO I HOOKED UP WITH NANCY, GRABBED A COUPLE OF SNAPPERS FROM THE BLACK JACK TABLE; BY BEING RUDE AND PUSHY. THAT IS NOT MY NATURE BUT SOMETIMES NECESSITY IS THE MOTHER OF INVENTION…LOL.
THEN WE HAD TO WALK THE PLANK AGAIN, OFF OF THE RIVERBOAT. I DID NOT GET ENOUGH OF THESE CHIPS, ESPECIALLY THE SNAPPERS. THIS IS NOT A CASINO THAT I WOULD RUSH TO GET BACK TO, EITHER; HOWEVER THAT BEING SAID I THINK IF IT WAS NOT QUITE AS CROWDED IT COULD HAVE BEEN A FUN CASINO…REGGIE

THE POD JULY 2018


I AM HAPPY TO REPORT THAT THE POD IN THE NEW FORMAT OF 4+/- PAGES PER DISPLAY, CONTINUES TO BE WORKING OUT QUITE WELL. THE CURRENT POD CYCLE WILL END DURING THE LATER PART OF MAY (MAY 26th). AT THIS TIME I HAVE DECIDED TO NOT PUBLISH ANY POD’s IN JUNE 2018. A FEW MAJOR ADJUSTMENTS WILL BE MADE ON THE NEXT CYCLE WHICH WILL COMMENCE SOMETIME IN EARLY JULY 2018.

THE FIRST POD OF THE NEW CYCLE WILL BE THE INTRODUCTION OF THE TYPES OF CHIPS. AND I WILL TRY TO SPRUCE IT UP A BIT. I WILL ADD THE ODD DENOMINATIONS PAGE. IT WILL SHOW YOU DIFFERENT ODD DENOMINATIONS. THIS WAS THE INTENT OF THE INTRODUCTION PAGE ALL ALONG. STARTING IN JULY 2018 THE PAGE OF THE DAY WILL GET SMALLER.

THE SET OF THE DAY HAS GROWN TO ABOUT 160 + 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, AND WILL RESULT IN PRICES BELOW MY ORIGINAL OUTLAY?

THERE WILL BE SOME CHANGES AND NEW TYPES OF PAGES INCLUDING (1) TWO PAGES OF THE NON DENOMINATIONAL CALIFORNIA CHIPS FROM THE 1930’S UP, (2) A PAGE OF 5c & 10c CHIPS , (3) CHIP OF THE YEAR (COTY) PAGE WILL BE A POD BY ITSELF, (4) IL-IN-NJ-PA WILL BE 2 POD’S NOW, (5) MT-ND-OR-SD WILL BE 2 POD’S NOW, (6) ONE PAGE OF $10 & 20 CHIPS, (7) ONE PAGE OF $25 & $100 CHIPS, (8) CALIFORNIA ONES HAVE GROWN AND WILL BE 4 POD’s INSTEAD OF 3, (9) SMALL STATES WILL ONCE AGAIN BE BY THEMSELVES; AND THAT IS MOST OF THE CHANGES.

A TOTALLY NEW FEATURE I AM GOING TO IMPLEMENT THIS JULY, IS FACE VALUE $1’s. ONE RESULT OF DOING THIS WILL BE SMALLER POD’S; AND CAUSE THE FACE VALUE $1’S & $5’S TO BE AT LEAST 5-8 PAGES PER POD.

THE GUEST HARVEST STORY AUTHORS, AND MY HARVEST STORIES HAVE CONTINUED TO BE POPULAR. THE GUEST HARVEST STORIES HAVE INCREASED TO OVER 40 AND IS STILL GROWING.

THE POSTCARD FEATURES WILL BE DIS-CONTINUED FROM THE PAGE OF THE DAY IN THIS NEW CYCLE. THE SEPARATE POSTINGS OF MY NEVADA POSTCARDS WILL CONTINUE ON THE CHIP BOARD; THEY ARE EXTREMELY POPULAR.

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. AT LEAST HALF OF THESE HAVE BEEN SOLD OR BROKEN UP FOR INVENTORY…OCCASIONALLY I WILL HAVE A SPECIAL SALE ON THEM; (24 HOUR SALE) THAT IS THE TIME TO PICK THEM OFF.

I DID SLOW DOWN ON THE LAST CYCLE; THE AMOUNT OF POD’S EACH WEEK TO POSTING ABOUT 2 PER WEEK. IN THE FUTURE IT WILL BE ABOUT 2 A WEEK OR EVEN LESS FREQUENT. I NO LONGER WILL DISPLAY UV OR MOLD VARIATIONS. IF YOU ARE INTO THAT; I WILL TAKE REQUESTS AND CHECK MY INVENTORY FOR WHAT VARIATION YOU ARE LOOKING FOR. THERE WILL NOT BE A PRE-POD ALERT NOTICE STARTING NEXT CYCLE.
