As no-one rose to the bait earlier :D I will re-post this.

First person that correctly explains why this is a Level 20 chip ($5.71 on the A Mold) gets the chip free. I only have one available (apart from the one in my collection).

half and half? two colors (i.e. white base with red spots on one side and red base with white spots on the other)?

That's what it looks like to me, except that on my screens it looks like two slightly different shades of green. Mirror images of each other.

I didn't know how to say green and slightly lighter green in CPC color terms...haha

Either just 3 chips were ordered(;)) or something related to the colors, seems like forest green which i have never seen on CPC, maybe some green clay got mixed in a wrongly way.

Not a good scan colorwise, and made some time ago. I just chose to post it now as I saw it in my collection :)

Thank you David. I promise I have no plans to order any chips with this spot pattern [emoji2] at least not in the foreseeable future [emoji6]

Yeah now what does a lvl 20 cost? :p
Those would probably (seriously) cost $10-$20 each to make.
When those were made back in the 50's, they must have had a different way of doing it.

My guess is this is like the two sided Paulson 'business card' chips or the Four Queens 'free play' chips with one side being one color and the other side being different. If you were to look at this from the edge you would see the split down the middle. I would suspect two sides with the spots being the same color on both sides (again, like the business card chips) would be a little easier to make.

Good name for it, Marsha. Probably the best description. Mind if I use it in the future.

Finally, congrats, Links! Promise you will bring it with you to either MTTD2 or WCB-VI. I'd love to see this one in person!

Layer cake ftw! Nice one, Marsha.

I'd take a barrel of T25K layer cakes, even at L20 prices.

I think David said no to producing "Layer Cakes" because he knows, deep down, I was about to order them for my 25K... in Bright White.

You jest, but someday, one of will win the WSOP or the lottery, and that $13,175 dream becomes your nightmare... :p
Strange you might say that but a 2013 final table player ordered a home set in the summer and spent that much!
He must have multi table home games :)

Yeah but the difference is he probably didn't spend that much on 100 level 30 chips! [emoji1]

$13,175 net and $100 in profit for you after labor!
