    ...wouldn't it be kinda cool to have a centralized location for CT chip traders to list the chips they want to trade for, so that those of us who come across those chips won't make the mistake of passing them up? Well, I think so anyway, so I decided to start the ball rolling.

    If you post your casino chip or token wish list here, I'll periodically go through the thread and keep a running, dated tally in this first post. If you have chips that are listed here and want to trade them, please PM that member directly.

    Something else that might help: if you know you're going to a certain casino soon, check it against websites that include casino chip images, such as Chipguide (ChipGuide.com - The Online Information Source For Casino Chip Collectors). Then compare those chips to the list below, and let the CT member who's interested in that type of chip know. Might save some frustration of buying a chip for that person and them not wanting or needing it.

    I'm always on the lookout for all Puerto Rico casino chips, not just those from San Juan - although those are the most plentiful.

    The bear-themed chips are a definite favorite.

    Casino de Capri chips from Havana Cuba are a personal favorite.

    Tahoe and small town Nevada chips as well as chips having shaped inlays. Gotta love 'em.

    Any unusual molds always strike my fancy too.

    Who am I kidding? I'm a chip junkie. They ALL appeal to me. :razz:

    Re: Chip Trader's Wish List

    Clays chips with shaped inlays and nice bright colors are my preference. I love non traditional colored chips.

    Also anything with a joker/jester/harlequin.

    Apart from that I am also interested in any chip up to $5 I don't own:disappoi: .

    I'd love to get some of those $20 cal bell club chips, or any other denomination of cal bells to go with all the $1 chips I already have. I'd also love to have a rack of $25 and $100 Le Cove's.

    Re: Chip Trader's Wish List

    I was just about to go "huh?", but if you're talking about the ones here--

    http://www.silver-state-treasures.com/lasvegs/casurina.htm

    --yeah, those are pretty.

    By the way, Jamby, I gave up on bear-themed chips; my husband went "huh?" when I told him I was collecting them for him. Luddite. So I switched to motorcycle-themed chips instead.

    OP updated through post #13.

    Re: Chip Trader's Wish List

    Yeah, except for the David Brenner one. :wink:

    The Westin Casuarina (used to be Maxim) is an extremely interesting and unusual casino property. It's got one craps table, no poker, one very small bar with a few cocktail tables surrounding it and a piano bar the last time I visited. A few slots, blackjack and roulette tables round out things in this very tiny casino that is just off the strip behind and about a block away from the Barbary Coast.

    I'm told that it's the only Westin property in the USA that allows smoking and that might be changing soon as the Westin board of directors is apparently not happy about that aspect of things. It's really a charming casino and hotel and gives the feeling that you're not really that close the the craziness of the strip at all. In fact, the first thing you see when walking in the main casino doors is a great big floral display. Really unuusal. One of my favorites.

    Re: Chip Trader's Wish List

    That was my first reaction when I saw the name. :wink:

    Those are the ones, yep. Looking for any and all up to 5 bucks (just, please god, not the one with David Brenner).

    Otherwise, my collection is still small enough for me to be an omnivore. :wink:

    Rose, this has got to be The Coolest (pun intended) Motorcycle theme chip I’ve ever seen. This was from the chip calendar by cottonchipper.
    If I ever get my hands on some, I promise you will be the second person to get one.

    I appreciate that, hon, but I can't see an image here. I bet it's sharp, though.
