I bought this to display in my game room. I have no idea what I have but I thought it looked neat. Chips are 1.5” in diameter and weigh 8g. There are no manufacturers labels anywhere. Not even sure if the chips go with the holder as a set.

    Sometimes these chips are made of Bakelite. You might want to test them. :)

    I read about the 409 test. I tried it on one of the chips and it seemed to turn the swab yellow but I’m not an expert so I could be wry

    The 409 test can't be trusted, because they changed their formula. Simichrome, works, but only seen it sold online. I did find an alternative, which is Turtle Wax liquid chrome polish. It can be found in most stores and is cheap to buy.

    I found the turtle wax chrome polish. All it did was remove some red from a 100 chip.

    What beautiful wood it is made from?!! :-) :-) :-)

    I’m not sure what it’s made of. I really know nothing about it. I saw it and got it to display in my game room.

    Are they regular playing cards?

    Think it's a poker & chip set.

    It is similar to what I have. The decks of cards I’m pretty sure are not original to the set.
