You gotta think there are as many of these as $5 Vineyards floating around
There were ALOT of $5s per the history a few people found
Oh for sure, they’re just hidden. I hope one a large pile of vineyard 5’s come out like these crystal parks.

Really nice yellow chips here, glws.

If I'm not mistaken, the inner parts of the edgespots on the Crystal Park chips are printed on the inlay (larger than normal inlay), and thus causing the misalignment of the spots. But the strange thing is the main graphic/logo in the center of the inlay doesn't even extend beyond the edge of the recess, so they really didn't even need to use a large inlay at all.

Me neither. I can't think of another casino chip where the inlay has continuations of the edge spots printed on them. Crystal Park may be the only one.

I've never noticed/realized this. What a lame design.

I guess one benefit is the inlay color stays a nice bright yellow and doesn't get dirty like the clay edge.

Ya the inlay spots are definitely a bit of a head scratcher. I was surprised how much I liked this set though once I got them in hand. They feel like bricks. Old school leaded bright yellow chips. They look awesome when they're all cleaned up & oiled. The whole set looks pretty good I think. Plus, I'm a fan of black inlays and I love Pink Floyd lol, so I'm keeping a set for myself. :)

Cheap racks hold 21 per barrel LOL 500 chip set (100 more $5’s on the way)
Yep, I almost jumped on these, but just couldn't right now. Trying fully complete my current cash set and get some use out of that. Got a couple chips off ebay about 16 years ago , the hundo you have above and a 1k chip. I still use them as card cappers. One day, one day :D

I've always been a THC guy. But in today's market, some of these RHC sets, particularly the old-school sets with leaded chips and/or yellow $5s, just seem like such a bargain now. CPs, Vinyards, Mark Twains, Terribles, Oak Trees, and a few others all seem like really good options nowadays. The market hasn't gone up nearly as much for these as it has for THC sets.
