This is a picture of a Vintage poker chip I have. I can't find anything like it through looking online for the same thing. People have suggested that it might be from Atlantic City, but...the person that had these chips worked for the mob from the depression days and was a stick man in the illegal speak easy places and was somehow affiliated with Al Capone. Now, Al Capone's initials are A C. and he had illegal gambling places in different areas. Does anyone out there know about these chips? They are definitely vintage..made of clay or some sort of material like that and they are all in very good shape. the letters A.C. Club are in Green. would really like some help on this. I could have something here.

    Sell one like this VINTAGE "ROCK GARDEN" AL CAPONE CLAY POKER CHIP ca 1934

    Go paste this into ebay search! I didn't know if you saw this or not but it is a clay chip. Maybe you could find out from the seller of this one.

    I don't think this has anything to do with Al Capone. I can tell you that this chip was made by the B.C. Wills company and is from their "small greek key" mold. I have a box of poker chips that look just like this except that they contain dollar amounts instead of the word "club." I know very little about mine, but research indicates they are probably from an illegal gambling club.
