What a gorgeous set. The plaques are so cool!
My group loved them. Personally, I always wanted to play with the $1k chips because the blaze orange just does it for me. But my friends loved the 'THUNK' of a plaque getting tossed into the middle.
 
I don't think so. I don't think any of the 1's, 5's or 25's have sharp edges. Many will stand on edge still, but not the condition @buffalojim and other folks are looking for
Thanks anyway man! What a great looking set though. I'd be down for some bridge cut cards if those somehow go separate.
 
This is an outstanding collection. How long have you been working on this set?

It would be fantastic if someone could keep this set whole. But that’s not me.
So if it splits, I would love the 21x chipcos.
GLWS!

I was trying to remember when I first got started with it. And I think it's been at least 20 years. I'm not nearly as hardcore as many of the people on here, but I am methodical :)
 
K-Mart shoppers, we have a blue light special on Aisle 1!

Shoppers, it doesn’t get any better than this! This set has nearly EVERYTHING!


Off the top of my head, other than the fact that this beautiful set doesn’t have every denomination of both primary and secondary Empress chips, I think the only thing it lacks are an Empress golf ball, glass Empress coffee cups, and the *plastic* Empress playing cards used in the Hammond casino. What am I forgetting???

Anyway, I hope some potential buyer looking for a set of REAL casino chips appreciates and nabs this pronto.


However, just in case it splits, DIBS on all the rare cool stuff that’s hard to get! :ROFL: :ROFLMAO:

Hahaha, a person of true discerning taste! I still regret not bidding higher on the Empress flag when one surfaced a few years ago.
 
Oh, and I think I have a set of Empress dice aorund here somewhere. If I can find them, they'll get added in too!
Oh yeah, I forgot about the dice (I have just one pair, I think). I have a nice glass shot glass and a few match boxes, too. It’s such a great logo. I think it ranks up there with the Dunes golf course, Tropicana fountain, and Sahara genie logos.
