Metal chips and plaques should not be confused with metal slot machine tokens.
Many of the early gaming chips that were used in both casinos and for home
use were made of various metals such as gold, silver, and copper.
EXAMPLES: Several of the illustrated pieces were used prior to the
advent of the slot machine, and were used in Monte-Carlo, Austria, France,
Germany and Spain. The oval plaque is from Romania, circa: 1920s, and the
NC/16 monogram is from Hungary, circa: 1830s.
