Set of leaded RHC chips from a riverboat cruise that never opened in 1994 I believe. These are heavy!

Breakdown
Just under 700 chips total:
240 x $1
220 x $5
200 x $25
8 x $100
7 x $500
+ 14 various extras

$1300 + shipping

I like them a lot, but having had wanted ads for high denoms out for over a year and only been able to find like two or three chips ($100s and $500s are hard to find!), I'm letting them go. Unfortunately not really playable for me as is without more high denoms, so hopefully someone else can use them.

Almost all of these chips have a cancellation stamp which they got from paulson before being sold in their store for retail customers back in the day I believe. The stamp has been cleaned off from one or two of chips of each denom (extras) by previous owners.

not sure why, but the 100s and 500s (except one) are not stamped.

Stamps cleaned off on a couple. I prefer them with the stamps on myself.

For refrence if you wanna remove the stamps, the stamps will still be visible somewhat easily but especially when held in some specific angles against the light:

@Marius L does the cancelation stamp has any effect regarding stacking or spinners?

Dont think so. They stack well. Testing a little now, and I'd say they are probably slightly more slippery than regular inlays.

There might be a couple of spinners in there considering hotstamped chips can warp slightly. That said I have not noticed any. Just took 6 random barrels and they seem reasonably safe stacked on top of each other.

Attempt to show how flat they are. Lol, I remember seing pics like this of warped chips, but I might have gotten the technique wrong. Anyways, no visible warping.
