    I just bought these chips on ebay.......kinda by mistake lol

    I think they are bcc large key mold?
    But I am not sure about that.

    Are they casino chips? Are there more available in different denominations?

    They are nice looking chips, and look to be mint.

    BCC did not make these, no. These are LGK's, aka SuperGems as marketed & made by the B.C. Wils company.

    The Chip Guide shows that chip as issued in 1968. Maybe these chips are replicas or tributes, maybe they are originals - we will need someone with better knowledge to help us out.

    For what it is worth, I always likes the look of these chips.

    Thanks for the replys, and the info.........I paid 122.5 for them shipped, which didnt seam like a bad price. I also really like how these chips look. I put in a 125 bid when I saw them with about 4 hours left in the auction and a couple bids already, and I didnt really think I would get them for that price. Not sure what I will do with them. Might trade or sell them, ill have to wait and see how much I like them when I get them.

    If they are originals, (1968), they are in really good shape.

    BC Willis originally owned the LG Key mold but SuperGems were made.produced by Burt Co (later ASM) & distributed/sold by BC Wills until the company went under and Burt acquired the mold.

    Large quantities on North Shore Club chips came out many years ago. Both the $5 and matching $25 Lg. Greek chips were included in that group, and with $5 and $25 bud Jones chips.

    Nice pick up! Andy they are originals from North Shore. And as stated above, BC Wills was the distributor, but the actual chips were made by Burt/ASM.
