Casino chips seized by law enforcement agent Eliot Ness on the last ever police raid on the Al Capone's mob have emerged for sale for £22,000. ($30,000)<br />
<br />
The eight coloured 'lammers', numbered from five to 1,000, were recovered from the Chicago mobster's Cotton Club prior to his tax evasion trial in 1931.<br />
<br />
The speakeasy, in the suburb of Cicero, served as the headquarters for his older brother Ralph Capone.
