I will assume everyone knows values but will state anyhow. Guide book says $4.00 each in used condition. These are all in used condition.
Shipping is $8.90 which I can't make cheaper or I would
$150.00 for them all

The image is upside down, so I immediately thought they were glued to a wall...

As always, you’re free to price chips as you want but casino ceramics generally sell for much less than your price, especially with the wear these chips show.
OK, these are casino ceramics then ? Maybe the same, I thought Chipco, but that I guess can be the brand, Chipco.

Yes, they look like Chipco.

Do yourself a favor and read threads/use the search function. There’s tons of info here on all types of chips. Some basic terms to look up:

China Clay
Ceramics
Dice Chips
Compression Clay
Paulson
ASM/CPC
BCC
Bud Jones
Matsui
Chipco

Should be plenty to get you started on different types and manufacturers of chips

What guide book are you referencing here? I ask because typical pricing on used casino ceramics is around 50c/chip, and curious what makes these book-valued at 8x higher.

I don’t know much about singles and book values, but I see what singles sell for on eBay and I see what racks sell for here, and I’m guessing that’s the disparity.
A singles collector might be happy to drop $4 on a chip, to put on their wall, and somebody looking for playing chips might be comfortable paying $60 for a rack of the same chip, and maybe neither guy is wrong.

I saw these chipcos on OfferUp the other day out in CA and I presume it was you who snatched them up quickly. Nice score. Love me some chipcos!

I hope you don't take this as me crapping on your sale, but they are worth about what you paid for them.

While trying not to pile on, I think it’s worth mentioning that this is a community, just to help explain some of the issues you’ve had today.
We try not to stomp on people’s’ classifieds. Generally speaking, capitalism is fine here. But this community isn’t just about buying and selling. We’re also about education. So if somebody is asking prices that are significantly out of line with market value, a lot of us feel a duty to help educate newbies on market value.
it’s a fine line we’re treading. We’re not supposed to crap on people’s classifieds, but if we let a newbie significantly overpay for something, maybe we as a community have failed.
I hope this makes sense.
And I hope a moderator will comment if my comments are out of line.
