    The silver inserts vary from .5 to.7 oz of silver, they try to sell them @ local pawn and coin shops for $12.to $20.00 But I generally buy them for around from $9.00/$11.00 in multiple items there are collectors for for the Dollar slot tokens mostly there are chip collectors that buy them. They go for a bock or two, with the older collectors passing on. Their heirs are are eager to get rid of them, when they find out that most casino's no longer use the and the redemption date has passed.

    When I worked in a few casinos in Central City, Colorado, many people collected
    all the different tokens. You were only supposed to use them in the casino with the same name as the token, but of course they all fit all the other casinos machines.
    A woman would go to all the casinos and buy up all the other casinos tokens (at a discount) and sell you back your own tokens. Casinos would open and close, and the tokens from the casinos that were closed were more desirable.
