I’ve never seen these before. Can anyone educate me on what they are and if they are worth anything?
I assume some kind of token, maybe for amusements or something as they have no cash value printed on them.
I saw a single one on eBay for $8 and another auction with 3 for $3.
I have 292 of them.
Thanks

These are casino tokens. They were used in casinos for slot machines, mainly, as opposed to chips which were used for poker, blackjack, craps, and other such table games. Nowadays slot machines use cards or paper slips.

Here's another thread about them that you might find of interest: https://www.pokerchipforum.com/threads/the-time-before-poker-chips.69755/

Mostly here we're interested in poker chips, but sometimes we talk about casino tokens as well. This google search will turn up some relevant threads: https://www.google.com/search?q=site:pokerchipforum.com+casino+tokens

There are some people who are dedicated collectors of casino tokens, just as there are coin collectors. I couldn't tell you what the ones you have are worth, but undoubtedly someone can. Here's one collector's site where he shows off some of his collection and has both pictures and prices; you might find it helpful: http://www.casino-tokens.com/

I’m surprised to hear these are slot tokens because they look like plastic. If those shiny bastards are actually metal tokens, they’re brilliant.

I was assuming they're metal. If they're actually plastic, then I have no idea what they would be.
