I wanted some blue base color chips for my Terrible's quarters and I found some which have been posted in this forum. I kept wondering though about a couple other possibilities. I had a few left over lables and some Las Vegas chips here, so I tried the labels on them. Although I really dig some of these chips they were cost prohibitive for me. I'm very happy with what I ended up with but for those of you who are pondering such a project, here are a few samples for your enjoyment.
First Picture from left to right top row then bottom row:

MGM Grand $1, Las Vegas Club $1, Harrah's $1, Paris $1
MY chip (old) Paulson James Bond home market $1, Palms $1, Riviera $1, and Binion's $1 (larger label needed, IMO).

The Binion's is the only RHC mold chip (like the Terrible's) so I like it a LOT. It should have a larger label, my labels were made for TH&C mold chips.
I like a few of these, the Paris, the Riveria and the Palms all look good. The Harrah's, Las Vegas Club and the MGM's not too bad. (IMO).
More pics posted with different lighting for better view, especially the Las Vegas Club which is a grayish blue and not so gray as in the first pic.

Love the experimenting! I'm partial to the RHC mold so I thing my favorite is that Binions one although the bottom right one is good too :)

Yes, for purists (I am one when I can afford to be) the RHC mold is a must to go with Terrible's chips. The Binion's $1 chip with the right size label would be a fantastic 25¢ chip to go with the Terrible's. The Blue Chip Casino quarters are another of my all time favorite blue RHC chips. You can get uncirculated Binion's for about $2 per chip, probably the same you'd pay for the Blue Chip Casino's. At the present time, both were not in my budget. The Palms $1 has a rim that is about the same as the RHC mold chips and although it has the house mold, I think it would fit in because the inlay area is about the same as the RHC mold and I just LOVE the colors on that chip. Riviera's have great spots/colors too, but the chip would be too noticeably different from RHC mold chips. By the way, my chips came from here:

They were what I could afford and I do love the colors/edge spots in contrast with my other Terrible's chips as seen here:
