Hello Ron, I been collecting and observing AC chips for about 25 yrs.. I don’t disagree it looks a little off but if I had to bet I’d say it’s real.
Iv seen these chips before and always say the same thing about Ballys and Showboat chips.
I never had either chip in my hand and Didn’t say this chip looks weird.
But you maybe right, I’m not saying your wrong just that the chips aren’t perfect like others.
