    IMG_3639.jpg IMG_3638.jpg A good buddy of mine picked up a sample set of Deadwoods from Apache years ago. Misplaced them for the past few years but found them this week. Thought it interesting that the solid 25 chip has .25 on one side and $25 on the other:

    Interesting. Looks like you've got a collector's item there. I just checked my samples of Deadwoods, and neither has that error.

    I don't think my friend is interesting in selling, but any idea what the value might be?

    I have no idea of the value. To me personally, it would be worth less than one without the error.
    U.S. Coins, on the other hand, have greatly increased value when they have minting errors.

    I'm willing to bet that JimB would be a very happy (not to mention very wealthy) man if non-casino error chips could be sold at $10-20 each. :wink:

    Lol. JimB's quality control is far to strict to let out many errors so they may be worth more :)

    JimB is NEVER makes errors,
    All CPC edgespot/inlay errors ARE intentional; to justify the need to include "spare" chips for his silly fans.

    It's a home game chip. The error would add a nominal amount to its value.

    I'd pay $3/chip for a set of Deadwoods, but certainly not $10 for an 'error' chip. Less than $5 in my book, if that.
