This is the first Chinese Gaming chip I have had. The chip was carved with 2 different scenes. The top seems to be a Chinese man with a measuring tool in his hand. He is surrounded by Flora. On the back is a Chinese man that has what appears to be a wild boar he has caught for dinner hanging over his shoulder.
Someone antiqued the front of the chip to bring out the detail. This chip must have been pretty lucky for someone as the owner had his jeweler set it in a 14K gold bezel. The pin has a fold over locking clasp on the back.
It is a large piece and measures just a hair under 2 1/2" x 1". It weighs 8 grams exactly. It is in Mint condition with no apologies to be made.
The chip is antique, circa 1900. The bezel was later added and has good weight.
I have not found another like it. I believe this to be a scarce piece. Questions are always welcome and encouraged.
