Hi all,
Since august 2010 and my first serious purchase (Mint PCA from the Chip Room),
I owned various Paulson chips.

Here is the Empress Tower !



Will you be interested enough to count the chips ? Or, at least, how many $25 secondary are there ?

Hmmm... Seems too easy, Nico. A quick count looks like 100x secondary $25 chips if you don't have any hidden behind the others. :)

here's ..... a Winner !
congratz ski !
Full set ?

It's pretty impossible to know without just making wild guesses at what's behind and under the visible stacks:

Secondary $5 - 102x
(guessing there are two base stacks of 42x each, with a single mid-tier stack of 18x chips on top of those)

Primary $25 - 319x
(really wild guess that there are seven base stacks of 42x each, with a single mid-tier stack of 25x on top of those)

Primary $100 - 100x
(guessing three mid-tier stacks of 33x, one of which has an extra chip on top, followed by the $500 chips above that)

Secondary $100 - 61x
(guessing two mid-tier stacks of 21x, plus a single third tier stack of 19x on top)

Primary $500 - 20x
(assuming all these chips are visible)

Secondary $500 - 45x
(again, assuming all these chips are visible)

I have to admit that it's impossible to say without seeing the back side,
there it is :


after verification, ski's right :)

1163? Those are gorgeous chips btw!

Nice try, Dan, but I think you assumed one too many base rows off to the right of the photo, making your total 120 chips high.

I think the actual total is 1,043 chips.

Nico, I really appreciate the contest and the wonderful prize of Empress chips (and maybe PCA chips, too), but please at least let me pay you for the shipping costs from France! Oh, and please don't forget to send me a tracking number. Thanks! :D

Man, I think I'm in love with those minty PCA $5, $25, and $100 chips. Simply beautiful.

LOL Ski !
You win again, for the shipping, where are you already ? ;-)
Sometimes, I miss a bit the second and third floors of the PCA set.

Concerning the Empress, I admit that I also miss the $5 secondary and $100 primary mint I owned.

Those were from my first purchase at the chiproom,
when you open the white Paulson box and discover those chalky minty beauties, believe me, that's love at first sight :)


apologies for the crappy cloth.
