Can you think of Vegas fracs and ones from the same casino that exist in quantity? (1 Viewer)

I won an auction for some dunes baccarat $20s last night. I'm not sure how I want to use them, but I guess option A is to find some Dunes Baccarat $5s - I know they're out there - and then build a cash set from there. I don't love a mixed set with multiple denoms from one casino and single denoms from another, but I guess it would be fine in my deranged mind if it was a set built from only two vegas casinos - dunes and another one. So I'd be looking for a rack of quarters and two racks of ones from the same vegas casino. Almost definitely leaded. Not an easy task and I can't think of any candidates off the top of my head. I assumed I was looking for THCs but it occurred to be that it would be almost cooler if they were another house mold. I guess that opens up a world that I've never really looked into (house molds) but I don't know if that makes the search any easier. Anyway, I look forward to any suggestions you might have.

All house molds would be cool. Even if you had a THC or RHC in the mix it wouldn't hurt. You could also leave the $20 as the only baccarat chip in the set and use the regular dunes $5's which are sweet and can be found easier than the baccarat chips.

Here are some of the house mold $1's I have to give you some ideas. I even threw in a house mold quarter at the end

Well, If you're willing to venture outside of Vegas, Lord knows there are plenty of Joker's Wild 25¢ around here.... Been a while since I've seen $1s come up, but I know I've seen at least a couple racks of those floating around here too.:unsure:

Live Vegas fracs? Do they exist?
No, when I said available in quantity, I meant the older ones that somehow escaped the shredder. There is some cool stuff available these days (not fracs) like the Paris chips. But for this project, I’ll resume my role as a lead hoe.

Four Queens, Gold Coast, Plaza are all options for house mold 25c and $1s.
Yes, four queens would be the dream, wouldn’t it? I can’t get on to Chipguide at the moment, but I think I remember seeing a household version of that pretty quarter pie $1. Though I can’t remember ever seeing the housemold version in quantity. And the THC version of that $1 will be damn hard to pry loose, but I’m all for keeping the dream alive. They had a house mold frac?

I think I know someone who's had or still has a rack of those Four Queens $1s.
Have you considered the white FQ $1s as an option or would like to stick with the blue?

The blue MGM Grand Vegas dollars and peach MGM Grand Detroit quarters go very well together.

And of course, these beauties are spectacular:

4Q also had brown hot-stamped fracs, but they are harder to find.

Make it a true mixed casino set, like mine, there are so many choices. This was the mixed set idea that started the insanity for me
