Wooden laminated Poker Chip with white in the middle; the wood is blonde and seems to have some sort of laminate on it with the middle being a white circle; on one side is an artistic "B" in the middle of the white and it is the original blonde wood color; on the opposite is the same type of artistic lettering but with a "C" and the same color; the "B" stands for the Belaustegui Boarding House and the "C" stands for the Chico Club; the wear on the chip is negligible; found in CS1 in a box by Jeff Washburn on 7/2/2009
