Hello everyone,

I am hoping to get some help in identifying this chip. It seems to be made of clay and has an image of four crossed pickaxes on a black background.

Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Your chip was likely made between 1880 and 1920 by the United States Playing Card Company.

The chip design on the chip is considered to be "generic", rather than a custom order chip design, used by a single establishment or client. The design on your chip is one that is less commonly found, and it was probably designed by a gaming supply distributor to be sold to whoever found that design attractive.

For example, below is a page from a 1890s catalog that has some chips similar to yours.


Collectors have given your specific chip a code of PM-QP, and you can find it here;

Awesome. Thank you so much! I kept searching with the word "pickaxe" and was getting nowhere. I really appreciate the detailed and precise response!
