I am a Lewis chessmen collector, and so far I already own 13 sets. [...] I would like to share my experience of how to choose a Lewis chessmen for playing or for collecting...

First, I need to give a short list of quality Lewis chess set that I collect:

1. The British Museum Lewis chess set
2. The National Museums of Scotland Lewis chess set
3. The SAC brown set
4. The SAC red set
5. The Jacque of London set
6. Other sets from ebay

Second, I want to describe the material used for making all these sets:

1. BM set: resin.
2. NMS set: crushed marble and resin
3, 4: crashed stone and resin
5. Jacque set: plaque
6. depends on your luck.

Since Jaques set is made of plaque, it needs some "processing" before using them to play. You need to get a spray can of Matte Clear Ultra Cover of "Painter's Touch" made by Rust and Oleum (it is available at Home Depot for about $3.50 a can (it is enough to spray about 5 sets of Lewis chessmen). You need to follow the instruction on the can to spray the brown side of Jaques set only ONE layer; but, for the light side, you need to spray it over and over, at least 3 layers. If you wait until they are after fully dried, and you still do not feel the surface of light chessmen is shiny and smooth: keep sparing! This will seal all the pores on the plaque on the light side and make the white side chessmen a lot stronger for playing!

The configuration about the Jacques' set is about the same as the one issued by BM: the light side and dark side are consisting of different chessmen. However, 2, 3, 4 are all using same chessmen on the light and dark sides. So, you can use this Jacques set to mix with SAC sets with no problem! Since they have the same King hight of 3.5".
