I have decided to part with my Coastal Gaming (CG) cash set, as it isn't used often enough (i.e., with all the other chips I own). The Coastal Gaming group operated a day cruise in association with the Seminole Indian Casino. The ship first sailed in 1997 out of Tampa (Florida), traveling beyond the 3-mile line where gaming is legal. After several run-ins with the law ranging from operating too close to shore to allegations of outright cheating players, the venture shut down for good around 2007. Fortunately, some chips did make it out.

These chips are Paulson THC mold, heavy leaded clay formulation, with shaped inlays, and metal security fleck on the $100s. The chips are in fantastic condition, due to the very limited use. The edges are crisp, and every chip will stand on edge. I built this set from pieces that I acquired over many years. As the chips are fairly rare, they provide much better security than newer chips with multiple owners (e.g., ChipRoom / NAGB chips). I internally debated an inlay replacement on these, but never pursued it beyond a quick test to prove it was feasible.
  • $1 = 328
  • $5 = 378
  • $25 = 191
  • $100 = 80
  • Fitzgerald $0.50 hot stamp = 241
  • TOTAL = 1,218
The set is large enough so that a split is certainly possible. If there is no interest early, I will probably come to my senses and keep them. :ROFL: :ROFLMAO: I prefer to sell to one buyer, but can ship to multiple locations. More info is available on the Chip Guide site here, including a $500 chip that I have never seen in the wild: http://chipguide.themogh.org/cg_chip2.php?id=FLMICG&v=1712314418

Damn if only I was that rich, security Paulsons are sexy! Whoever wins this has to keep a sample set in a showcase with good lighting.

Everyone says great price and GLWS, but jeez. 2$ a chip for leaded THCs with shapes that no one else really has?

Im legitimately going to talk to the wife about this. Not sure how we get there, but seems like a must at the minimum bid.
