    Hey Jim can you make this a sticky so later on I can find it and keep me from asking you all the newbie questions over and over.

    Thx

    Wow ask and you shall recieve, thx X. This is a great list. I'm sure I'll be looking over this for hours. Now if I can only break down and buy the Chip Rack. When I do I'm I'll be thumbing through the pages like when I was little kid with the Sears & Robuck Wish Book going I want this and this and I'll take that, so on and so on...

    Thanks again Jim,
    Mutt

    Sweet list, Jim.

    Ive only really now just ventured into Collectors Corner, and i really like what I see.:)

    I think a greater presence made by the collecting side of the hobby can only benefit CT.

    Glad to have you visit. Did you bring anything for Show and Tell?

    The Australian and New Zealand chip list

    Hi, Guys,

    My name is Ken Nestle. I am one half of the team that created and maintains the Australia and New Zealand (A&NZ) chip list. My co-conspiritor is John Kallman.

    As I've said many times: I do most of the research, and John does all the work.

    If you have even the slightest interest in Australian or New Zealand chips, please take a look at our site.

    It can be accessed either through the link on the chipboard main page or at
    http://cashcoinconnection.com/gamingchipsAustralia/Australia.html.

    We have listed house chips (trying to include every esoteric variation), roulettes, cruise ships, and illegals.

    We are always looking for good scans of A&NZ chips that we don't have listed, as well as information and comments.

    Please take a look at the list and let me know what you think.

    Hi Jim,

    I lost all my favorites recently, so I used the links here. Just want to let you know the chipboard link doesn't work.
