Trying to build at least a rack of each of these and I'm just getting started. I'm looking for large inlay Caesars Palace LV $5 chips in good condition. Textured (preferred) or smooth inlay. I'm finding these very hard to find anywhere other than a few singles on eBay. I'll take singles, barrels, a rack, or whatever if they're in good shape.

Also looking for Caesars Lake Tahoe $1 light blue house mold hot stamps. I think these may become my Caesars fracs if I can find enough in great condition. I've also seen roulette chips on the house mold in other colors (white, bright orange) but I'm under the impression these are very old and rare. I would be interested in any of these if I can scrape together enough in great condition to build at least one rack.

Right now the focus is on the light blue $1's because they seem to be somewhat available, but if someone out there has another color in quantity I would be interested. I know of the NCV tourney chips but the colors and edge spots aren't for me so those are out.

Thanks for taking the time to read this,

-Tyson

I’ve been hunting the $5’s for awhile now and am only up to 14 (not for sale). I’m wondering if anyone has milled the small inlay ones and replaced with large inlays. Maybe @Josh Kifer knows if these can be milled?

Anything can be milled, but results might be a lil rougher then a HS chip

If the inlay is removed first would that be easier?
No clue. It would be a total test subject. I'm not sure the sizing needed and we are stuck with base sizing on the bit. 7/8 and 1 inch. If the area for the inlay is 7/8 and you needed a 1 inch to fit, it would be doable. But until I had one in my hand and these things could be measured and tested, no honest clue if it's doable.

I'm new to the milling world but that's the route I'm wanting to go. So @Josh Kifer , you're saying it's unknown how they would turn out until it's tried with these specific chips? Maybe I should sponsor a test run before I drop a bunch of $ to load up on the Tahoe hot stamps.

I don't know the sizing, so anyone with some calipers or a ruler can figure it out with a chip in hand. I can do 7/8 and 1 inch milling.

I haven’t milled Caesars but I did mill several hundred small inlay Tropicana and mandalay $1s with a 1in bit. It’s pretty easy. I highly recommend…

Are the CP $5s you’re looking for the live ones? If so, I might have a couple.

I'm looking for the larger inlay version. There may still be a few in circulation but they're probably beat up. The current live chips have a smaller inlay. Due to scarcity I'll probably have to fill out my set with those, but I'll pick them up at cost in Vegas eventually. Thanks for checking.

Snagged another $5 from eBay today. But the eBay well is drying up. Caesars must have made 10's of thousands of these, there have to be more out there. Offering $9 plus shipping per chip (large inlay) to fill out this set.

Offering $6/chip for the Tahoes.

Hit me up if you have something.

Birthday bump.

$10 each for great condition, large inlay $5.

$7 each for sharp Tahoes.

I may have already bought everything out there but I'm holding out hope PCF can keep this set going. After this I might have to give up and go with the small inlay $5 and some sky blue THC's.

Thanks for looking.
