In Response To: Chip ID Needed.....FB ()

Even more so than the font, the unusual double space between the F and the B does strongly link your chips to a single client. Someone was ordering LOTS of different chips on different molds from White's/Rigdon (Cincinnati, OH).

On the "White Court Tavern" listing on the ChipGuide, there are two different FB Lazy mold chips posted (different fonts and different spacing between the letters), see below. I suspect that only one of those chips was originally associated with the White Court Tavern (Canton, IL), and the other font chip was put there simply because it had the same two letters. That is often done on the ChipGuide, and I think that doing so is more often than not a mistake. FB are pretty common first/last name initials, so Whites/Rigdon may have had multiple clients using those initials.
