OFFICIAL Casino Chip & Gaming Token Collectors Club GRADE & CONDITION DESCRIPTIONS

I.  GRADING DESCRIPTIONS or STANDARDS are a result of natural use of chips and tokens. The following five grades have been adopted and endorsed by The Casino Chip & Gaming Token Collectors Club. 


Never used in games. Square and round edge chips will be as from the manufacturer with absolutely no wear, no dings or nicks. No scratches on surface of chip or inlay.


Only slight signs of use, edge still crisp but ever so slightly dulled with very little wear. Cross hatching may show slight wear near edge. Few or no edge nicks; still retains luster in mold design. Bold hot-stamp; inlays excellent.


Typical chip found in play after months/years of use. Slightly rounded edges. Will have minor defects such as small nicks on edges. Inlays are beginning to show even wear and about half of the cross hatching has worn from the body surface. Hot-stamps have dulled, beginning to show even wear and may be missing a small amount of foil.


Moderate and uniform wear of edge, surface and hot stamp. Noticeable edge nicks and/or surface scratches. No luster in mold design. Cross hatching is nearly worn off. Hot-stamp is still readable but much of the foil is missing.


Edges that were formerly sharp and square, are now well worn like bicycle tires. Original hot-stamp foil is mostly missing with only the recesses visible (may have to hold towards a light) Moderate to large chips (nicks). Surface cross hatching barely visible (if at all) Severe scratches to inlay or chip surface. Severe color fading. Partial wear up to half of CHIPCO design from the edge to the center of the chip. (Damage, such as cracks, breaks, missing inlay or other chip structure, do not apply to this category) 

II.  CONDITION DESCRIPTIONS or STANDARDS are unnatural changes in chips as a result of other causes.  Specimens in this "Condition" category may be graded in any of the five "Grading Descriptions."  A cancelled, damaged or defective chip can be graded in any category from “NEW" to "POOR." However, a dirty, cracked or faded chip cannot be graded as NEW, even if it has not been played in a casino. It is not in the original grade as when it was made. The "Condition" category consists of the following terms that should be used as qualifiers to further accurately describe the five grades:  (Examples: New/Clipped; Average/Warped)


  1. Drilled                                   
  2. Notched                                
  3. Overstamped                          
  4. Clipped


  1. Severe nicks or chunks         
  2. Loose or missing inlay           
  3. Cracked                                
  4. Broken                                 
  5. Warped
  6. Permanent stain
  7. Severe fading
  8. Cigarette burn(s), fire damage
  9. Over-cleaning
  10. Severe scratching or gouging
  11. Shaved edge  (example:  to fit in a bezel)
  12. Water damage 
  13. Burial damage


  1. Inlay or die strike off-center (slight, moderate, extreme)
  2. Some of the script or photo is missing from the inlay
  3. Some of the hot-stamp is missing
  4. Manufacturer modification  (example: one side of chip includes manufacturer's advertising information, even though the other side uses the actual casino chip design)
  5. Ivory chips only - nerve holes (small, moderate, extreme, as a "see through")


  1. Incorrect inlay or graphic  (example: Inlay or graphic is supposed to be different on each side of chip, but it is the same)
  2. Wrong mold
  3. Double-strike of hot-stamp
  4. Mistake in color or number of edge inserts



This may not be a permanent condition. To clean or not to clean is the choice of the owner. While cleaning chips is a commonly accepted practice for aesthetic or hygienic purposes, it does not improve the grade but may damage the chip and diminish its value and grade. On the other side, non-cleaning should have no effect on the grade unless the specimen is so dirty that grading is not possible. In a situation involving a permanent stain that cannot be easily removed, the chip will fall into the "Damaged" category.
