I know that clay CIC chips exist, though I have no idea who made them. But did any sets survive? Because those things are pretty cool.

Love these. The Large Key chip was made by Burt/ASM prob in the 70s or 80s. I am pretty sure they are considered CIC's; Coin in Center (or was it Coin in Chip?), like the Bud Jones chips are called.

Here is a few Burt samples that i have and the last one is 43mm, though the Nugget looks more like a coin as these metal discs seem thinner. These Burt samples were probably a lot older than those Nuggets, though so they could just be protypes.

Off the top of my head, other than the Carson City Nuggets (also a $5 chip out there), i can't think of any other casino issued Burt/ASM CIC's? Maybe in the Caribbean/DR/PR, etc? There probably a few, but can't think of any right now. The Nuggets may be your best bet. Might want to check with David Spragg, to see if CPC can make them?

The Paulson chips are called Metal Center chips. There seems to be a decent number of casinos that issued them in the 70s and 80s, including those Calif Card rooms (like those show above) and Nevada casinos like the Fremont, Golden Gate, Gold Dust in Reno, etc.

Is that roman mold ink-stamped?

They had some for sun city in South Africa. Also, the $1 and $5 for the Carson Nugget have drastically different inlays implying they came from two separate orders.

Were these common in Vegas back in the day?

If you look at the Paulson meter centers, they typically have the month and year of manufacture cast into them. Most are from 1975 / 76. As the chips wore, the center was higher than the edges making them a mess to handle. That pretty much killed them off.
