    Poker chip found at the beach today

    Wasn't a whole lot going on at the beach, decided to walk around at low tide and see if I could find anything. It might get a little more exciting tomorrow as a big storm is supposed to be rolling in. I did however manage to dig up 3 quarters, three pennies a dime and what I think is a $100 poker chip from commerce gambling casino. There's supposed to be a sticker in the middle of it that is missing but from what I can find online I'm pretty sure I found a hundred. now all I have to do is take myself on a three to four-hour round-trip ride to the City of commerce so I can cash it in.

    Whites are usually $1; $100's are generally black. (At most casinos, though it's not a requirement).

    I'm not sure what it's made of seems like a really hard plastic but could be a ceramic I suppose. It definitely set the cz-21 off. So there's something inside of it. What I found online for this casino shows the same color chip with the gold, green and silver paint stripe on it but with a sticker in the middle that said $100, mine is missing a sticker. I called the casino but got somebody on the phone who didn't really seem to know a whole lot as they were asking my questions over their shoulder to somebody else. I described the Chip and she said it sounds like one of theirs but couldn't say for sure until they had it in their hands, but if it was a legitimate chip I could cash it in. The thing had to be at least a foot deep. A solid mid-tone on the CZ 21. Honestly I thought for sure I had a ring.

    I found a world championship poker chip at beach and it also had some sort of chip inside that set it off
    I also found one at atlantis hotel in Bahamas in the water with no metal but scooped it up with a pull tab
    it was $25 one and I walked in and asked cashier if it was real or something from gift shop = it was real

    I think the clay is impregnated with metal so it sounds like a real chip but I wonder if it might have been a key chain fob the reason I say that is I have a $500.00 chip that is a key chain fob.I hope it's the real deal for you.The only thing that makes me question it is the paint on the edges, if clay they usually are inlaid clay pieces of those colors of clay.I looked at their $100.00 dollar chip online and it does match theirs.

    I say go get your $100.00 dollars and don't get tempted to double your money.Go at night when traffic is light shouldn't take you as long and they have card room Managers always on duty.
