    Got a bracelet box full of these years ago, without knowing what they were. Still don't. They're thin pieces of plastic, almost definitely not bakelite, but ... what game are they from? Red, white, green and blue.

    Oho. No wonder I've never run into them. Bet Komo and Pearls have though; the Dreidel spinner was a giveaway even if older Jewish ladies playing mah jong wasn't a stereotype.

    My mahjong group back in the 70s played with a Chinese style set so we used the sticks instead of 'chips.' We were a mostly 30s gentile ladies, but the group was organized by a Jewish woman from Brooklyn. ;)

    I had some or have some that came in a box with other stuff from an estate sale. I had no idea what they were till I looked them up. Wonder if I tossed them out or they are somewhere here.

    I sold an old set on eBay for $600; they are collectible.

    These may not be ancient. I'll have to set them as auction instead of BIN and see what happens.
