After seeing a bunch of beautiful pictures of these web mold ceramic hybrids from Broken Arrow, It got me thinking about why this mold wasn't used more frequently. I know there are Scandia chips around on the web mold, but other than that I can't recall seeing many others around. I did a quick search and found this info on the web mold from <Robert Eisenstadt's Antique Gambling Chips & Gambling Memorabilia Web Site>

WEB MOLD -- 20 "diamonds." 1930's to late 1990's, owned exclusively by Ace Sportworks, NYC, and then Marion and Co., NYC and North Miami. Both firms used the Burt Co. to manufacture the chips until about 1995, when the manufacturing was turned over to the Paulson Company until it was acquired by the large French firm, Bourgogne et Grasset/GPI Corp. Chips with this mold were hardly ever used in licensed casinos. Rather the chips were made for illegal clubs (such as Outhwaite's in Saratoga NY) and home games.

Anyone have any interesting web mold chips or pictures in their collection, just curious, seems like this mold has a cool backstory being made for illegal clubs an all.

One of the reasons I was so happy it won the poll.
