Yes and they were a good deal. I put in a best offer for $100 only because I didn't really need them. Somebody pulled the trigger on the BIN shortly afterwards.

I would say so. Sweet deal. I kinda like those colors. One of these days I'll find a set like this with my initials on it...I won't hold my breath though.

If these were manufactured in the 1960's, then Burt and Company would have made them. Pre-1965, they would have been made for Christy and Jones, after 1965 for Paulson.

Paulson apparently did not begin manufacturing their own chips until 1970, about five years after the company was formed. Here's a cool article by Howard Herz with a bunch of manufacturer info.

Will it be possible to put a sticker/label over the hot stamped chips so as to customise it ?
I tried to find stickers/labels on eBay but the designs are not that great

i am actually the buyer

Great pick up! The chips seem to be mint...

My guess is that the stamps will be as mint as the chips so kinda 'raised' above the face a bit... That could be a problem for relabeling (spinners, labels less durable, etc) although it's certainly doable...

I'd recommend GearLabels (sponsor here) if you want to print something unique... Chris also does 'resurfacing' of the stamps so the labels fit totally flat...

Good luck with the project or with the chips the way they are!

Congrats on a sweet score. Those appear to be in fantastic shape and the price was certainly right.

If they had some weird initials like QFP, I could see labeling over them. Though to do that properly is pretty labor intensive. We can probably dig up some good how-to threads if you decide to do so.

As they are, I am not sure you could find a much better monogram than "JAM" on a set of stamped chips. Maybe worth embracing as-is.

If they are the older Long Cane Chips,they don't have a recess even for 2mil labels.

Nice score sir! For that price, quality and age, you won't even need to justify the purchase with labels.

you can try the resurfacing drilling technique if you really want your own label. Will be tedious but should be worth it. You just need time and a friend that has a machining drill.

Without a decent recess, the chips will slip and labels with wear over time.
While you are on this, please make sure your sanity is in check. Else, you will end up with #over9000!!!! Chips.

Good luck sir.

Congrats on some sweet chips. Loving those colors. Enjoy! Now that you have the chips in hand, what are thinking for their future? Sticking with the stamps or labeling?
