Just saw THIS while searching around. Not my type of chip, but maybe someone here might be interested.

Well if he gets this price for used chips I'll definitely be putting my mint ones up for sale :)
(edit my .25's and $25's are used but the $1's and $5's are mint)

He's got them posted all over the country. I saw those too (in the Seattle craigslist postings) -- then I checked Portland and New York, and saw them there too.

Out of curiosity I emailed and asked where he got them and how he came to that value. His response:

You will Have to Call Phil 208-691-**** with any questions. I am just helping him with the ads.
Thanks
Tim

They are, however, a real nice set of EWING mold real Vegas strip vintage chips from 1971-1977. I bought mine from a guy named Ratfink over on CT. He was not a collector but found several boxes of mint chips in an attic while helping clean out his buddy's dad's house after he had to go to a rest home. He told me his buddy's dad was a security guard in Vegas in the 70's. I don't know the exact numbers but believe around 20 + boxes of $1's, 5 or so mint $5's and at least one box of used $5's, less than a box of used $25's and NO .25's were found. My numbers might be off but that is about what I remember.

i would say a more accurate value would be $1000 to $1200 range for this set
