Looking for examples of vintage (say, pre-1980) chips with inlays with colored backgrounds. Not color pictures on the inlay, but actual colored backgrounds (not black or white).

I have these from a very brief search, but I know that I've seen others. Even crest and seal chips with colored inlays would be helpful.

Thanks in advance.

The last one is my fav too. Just buy 2000 of those. [emoji13]

Will see what I can come up with in next few days, sir.

A magical chip fairy blessed me with these pics by email. Love them all, but how bad ass is that Cal-Vada chip?

I've seen the Cal-vada before, love it, but blown away by the El Condor. So sweet!

It's a beauty alright! I had one before and thought it was cool. Heads up on this, there are actually two 1st issue versions; pink and salmon inlays.

There are several TR King issues that come to mind, here's my favorite from 1971.

and more. the zimba's $5 doesn't strictly fit the requirements since the background is striped rather than solid, but it's interesting enough that i threw it in anyway.

Not sure how old the Mizpah chip is, it may be from the 80's. I agree with you guys on the Cal-Neva chips. The Small Greek Key mold has an amazing feel! If CPC ever brought that mold back, I would probably have to buy lots of chips from them!

BTW- That yellow $100 from the GN is gorgeous!
