The Museum of Gaming History is growing and we need your support. The MoGH came to life in 2014 with the showing of exhibits at the El Cortez Hotel and the Mob Museum. We are working on showing several new exhibits in the coming year. The MoGH needs your support to fund these projects. We seek to grow the hobby by expanding interest in Gaming History.

Chips & Plaques of The World

Chips & Plaques of The World - Part 9


Some of the most beautiful chips and plaques ever to exist were those cut from Mother-of-Peal and engraved with intrcate designs, numerals and lettering.

Many of the different shapes: oval, round and rectangular that were produced in the 1800s are found in damaged condition with edge nicks and chips. Those pieces being larger and thicker in size are somewhat scarce, especially when they have casino names on them.
