Notice: All trades or sales are private transactions between individuals--the Exchange is simply a listing point for those who wish to make such trades and is no way involved in any transactions, nor may it be held responsible for any problems.
Visitors to this site are especially advised to be wary of claims that an item is "ivory". See our What's It Made Of? page for assistance in how to tell ivory from bone. Caveat emptor -- make sure you're sure before you buy.

Individual Tiles for Sale

NOTE: This bulletin board is where SELLERS post announcements of loose mah-jongg tiles they are offering FOR SALE or trade.

BUYERS: Just scroll down and read the posts. Contact sellers who are offering what you're looking for. AND see our "Tiles Wanted" bulletin board as well (click link at left).

SELLERS: Please write an email describing the individual tiles you have to sell or trade. Limit one post per seller (second post will result in deletion of previous post).
Sellers are advised to be wary of buyers who place large orders, then send a check for considerably more than the purchase amount and want the surplus refund mailed to an alleged friend or relative. The check is no good. Read FAQ 7.n.
In February 2014, the U.S. instituted a ban on interstate sale of ivory items, and made it illegal to sell ivory items without a permit that can be obtained only by proving that the items were imported to the U.S. before the 1989 import ban. Consequently, this site no longer accepts any ads for ivory items.
Sellers: not sure if your set is ivory? See our What's It Made Of? page for assistance in how to tell ivory from bone.

Sellers: EMAIL YOUR ANNOUNCEMENT to or click the picture below to submit your Tiles For Sale post. In your email, you must describe the tiles you are selling. Entries that do not provide sufficient information about your tiles will not be posted. Limit one image per sale. No shouting, please. Typing in all capital letters is considered "shouting." If any part of your post is typed in all capital letters, it will be converted to all lower case before going online. No information you provide through this website shall be deemed confidential.

Click this picture, or email the address above, to submit your own announcement.

Be advised that sometimes if you post a "for sale" announcement, it can attract offers from scam artists who offer to buy your stuff but are really trying to rip you off. Caveat vendor!

Name: National Mah Jongg League


Rescuing Mah Jongg Sets
If you have lost tiles from your set or have an older set that needs additional tiles, the League will make an attempt to obtain a match for your set. If you need a tile or tiles, send it to us, in an insulated bag (jiffy bag). Request the specific tiles needed, be it a Joker, Flower or Symbol. The League will obtain the nearest match to your set and substitute the new tile, putting a Joker, Flower or Symbol decal on your tile. This gives the best "mix" of tiles, since all tiles age somewhat differently.

The League will do its utmost to provide symbol tiles exactly as requested. Price is $3.50 per tile ($4.25 for bamboo), including postage. Please include check or money order with your request.
