The last few racks of mint clay fracs I borrowed were from Northern California cardrooms. And they learned the hard way...all the fracs were gone within a few months. Some Cali cardrooms still have Bud Jones fracs. But I seriously doubt there will be any in Vegas or Reno areas. Or else packs of Chip Donkeys would be all over them.
If I were building a set around a casino-ish design (I'm not) and wanted to include fracs (I don't) then I would do the very same thing. Looking at other people's pr0n, I have to say I really like the way a set looks when the workhorse chips are plentiful and colorful and the frac chip is a small supply of hotstamped solids. It gives the set some character.
Thanks, I was thrilled to find the chips, then someone to do the labels, for my mixed house mold set. I love playing poker with these chips.
I think label vendors will reject orders for live labels with increased denominations, but in this case I devalued the chips by 75% of their worth - plus the Top Hat & Cane security symbol wasn't replicated on the new label. I suggest you start a dialog with @Gear - you'll find great advice there. (Although, I do remember some Caesar $2's and Aria $3's becoming $20's...)
BTW, I picked up the harvested $1's via PCF. With some casinos reopened, harvesting is possible again - so that's good.
