for sale for trade TRK The Palms Chips

Have a few sets of these two TR King The Palms chips on Large Crown mold for sale or trade. [Trade: I collect manufacturer samples for Paulson, Bud Jones, B&G, TRK, including color samples, logos, etc.]

These chips were made in 1943 for an illegal card room called "The Palms," located at 2634 Bayshore Blvd. in San Francisco, CA. They were owned by Bok Hing Chan, who was the biggest illegal gambling operator in California in the 40s and 50s.

Here's a whole bunch of info on these chips, including newspaper clippings, as researched by the late Gene Trimble, who specialized in researching illegal casino chips.
