Last year I traded away a bunch of 1/2" magnetic counter clips like those pictured below. There was a bunch of interest in them at the time, but I thought I'd traded them all. Today I just found a box with a bunch more. I've got 7 boxes of 80, plus a whole bunch of loose clips. Looks like 800-1000 total. I don't really have a use for these anymore and I know they're pretty hard to find - I'd like to see them end up with a wargamers who can put them to good use. Let me know if you're interested in a trade or purchase.

Well, I never heard anything from the original poster and I answered him right away. Guess he just wanted to put up a post for the fun of it.

Each clip holds one counter and if it is back printed it can be a bit of a pain taking them and reinserting them. Inserting counters needs to be done carefully as the fit is tight and it is possible to scuff them up.

Counters originally came in two sizes, 5/8" and 1/2"

I've got around 800 in a box somewhere I used for a vertical game (on the wall) of Command mag 33 Great War in Europe.

Hadn't thought to sell them but if anyone really wants them and doesnt mind shipping from Australia and offering a fair price I'll email them photos to view.

The ones made by http://countermagnets.com/ are flippable without removing the counter.
