Chips & Plaques of The World

Chips & Plaques of The World - Part 1

The purpose of this series is to assist the collector in identifying the many different types of chips and plaques produced in the last 100 years.

The initial introduction portion of the series will consist of some 30+ segments; each describing and illustrating examples of the type.

(1) PLASTIC ENCAPSULATED:
This type of piece was predominately used in South American countries. They were produced in such a manner where the graphics were printed on a wafer-thin layer of paper, foil or plastic and encapsulated in a thick transparent plastic shell. These chips were able to withstand many years of play, as the printed surface was never touched. Such pieces were known to exist in Argentina and Paraguay.
