Poker Chips - Antique $1 http://orangecounty.craigslist.org/atq/5060077967.html

I'm not expert enough to determine if these are antiques from 1910 as seller claims, or if they are just super diamonds. I have not handled the chips which would likely solve the issue.

Based on the artwork being molded or carved in it makes me think they are not antique. I would expect old chips to be hot stamped. The cases look old... 1910 old... Not so sure. I don't see any mold marks in the diamonds either. The mold is similar to the MD-49 on eisenblatts site:

Is it possible they were hotstamped, and then cleaned using some type of alcohol, which removed the foil?
