Fraud warning! "brand new" Paranoid chips are often rip off replicas rather than a dusty find in some lost corner of the attic. I have been taken in myself - here is a side by side photo of fake Paranoids vs vintage Paranoids.


The right hand stack is authentic, the left hand stack are reproductions. Even the box these chips came with was a fake.

It isn't impossible to find "mint" vintage chips from a hundred years ago. These types of chips were sold in huge quantities. But they are not commonly found if pristine condition, as we would expect.

Buyers beware -=- DrStrange

The other thing is, the chips don’t look NOS mint as advertised. Even if they were NOS mint vintage paranoids, are they worth that price? I really don’t know, but I’d be surprised.

Lol, we need the PCF police on them - since we’ve definitely defined “mint” now we need to work on “NOS”.

Saving the world, that’s just what we do.
