  1. I am not sure specifically what you
    would like know about these pieces,but
    you can get 'standard' tournament(Staunton)
    pieces at the USCF site (http://www.uscf.org)
    or other on-line shops such as Chess House
    (http://www.chesshouse.com)or Wholesale Chess
    (http://www.wholesalechess.com)

    If you have some other question or
    additional ones, we can try and answer
    them as well.

    Thanks.
