If you have a set, a rack, or a barrel that you'd like to sell, let me know. I'm trying to build a couple Empress sets, and still have a number of gaps.

Thanks for looking!

I'm building sets of both mint and casino worn chips. I'll consider any chips as long as they haven't been cracked in half, and don't have inlays that have faded completely away, etc. Thanks.

delaun, are you looking for secondary Empress $25 that are SCV or LCV? And darker green or lighter green variety? Depending upon your specific needs, I can probably cover you for 20x secondary $25 chips when I'm done cleaning and sorting everything that I've recently purchased.

Ok thank, for variety not important
Just a quick note to let you know that I haven't forgotten about you, delaun. I've cleaned thousands of chips in the ultrasonic TSP bath, but I still have a few hundred to go. After that, I'll figure out what I'm putting into sets and what my extras will be. Again, I'm very confident I'll have extra chips to cover your needs. I'll update you later this week.

I finally finished cleaning and sorting my Empress chips, and just sent you another PM regarding yours. I'm interested in your primary $5 and secondary $25 chips. Thanks!

I do have plenty of extra primary $25 chips. I know you asked for 20x chips, but I put 40x chips aside for you (20x chips with the lighter logo, and 20x chips with the darker logo). I don't wish to charge you any money for these chips. If you're willing to pay the shipping cost from the U.S. to France, I'll get them in the mail to you, probably this weekend or early next week. If you PM your mailing address to me, I'll check on the shipping cost for you.

Bubble, thanks for the photos. Those $5s look great. It difficult to be certain, but I think ALL of them are dark red. We can work out details of price and shipping for the two racks in a PM.

Nico, I have at least four different versions of primary $5s:

SCV light red with light blue/gold logo
SCV light red with dark blue/gold logo
SCV dark red with dark blue/gold logo
LCV (I forgot the colors!)

Tim,
the $5's with blue/gold spots are secondaries, and there are indeed many different versions:)
I'm pretty sure primaries were all manufactured at the same time.

You may have misunderstood my previous reply. I do realize that the $5 chips with light blue and gold edge spots are the secondaries. When I listed "light blue/gold" color, I was talking about the color of the logo on the inlays, not the color of the edge spots. So, now that I can reply with my chips in front of me, following below a complete list of the EIGHT different versions of Empress $5 chips I have in hand. While I have a large number Empress $5 chips, there may still be other versions of which I don't have any examples; I'm not sure!

$5 Primary (red with yellow and lime green edge spots)[HR][/HR]SCV:
• Light red chip with light blue/light gold logo
• Light red chip with dark blue/dark gold logo
• Dark red chip with dark blue/dark gold logo​
LCV:
• Light red chip with light blue/light gold logo
• Light red chip with dark blue/dark gold logo​

$5 Secondary (red with light blue and gold edge spots)[HR][/HR]SCV:
• Light red chip with light blue/light gold logo
• Dark red chip with dark blue/dark gold logo​
LCV:
• Light red chip with light blue/light gold logo​

I have a large number of Empress $25 chips, and there is a similarly large number of different versions of these too, involving SCV and LCV molds, light and dark chip colors, and light and dark logos on the inlays. I think my second favorite $25 chip, behind only the Dunes 16th edition $25, is now the Empress primary LCV dark green $25. I have just 19x of these chips in mint condition, but they're gorgeous.

There are far fewer different versions of the Empress $100, $500, and $1000 chips, thank goodness! :cool:

I'm going to post my extras in detail below, however, my $5 secondary extras are not in mint condition. I've never heard of any $25 secondaries that are in mint condition. The $25 secondaries I have are in reasonably good condition - some will stand on edge, and some won't. I don't have any extra $25 secondaries at the moment, however, I still hope to purchase a rack of them from Bubble. If that happens, I'll have 40x extras after sending 20x to delaun.

After collecting quite a few Empress chips, I have a good number of chips that are extras that I'd like to trade, and I'm still looking for quantities of certain chips. Following below is a list of the chips I have for trade, and the chips I'd like to acquire.

[HR][/HR]CHIPS FOR TRADE - all are in used condition[HR][/HR]All chips for trade are in used condition, which, like all used Empress chips I've seen, means the $5s are chewed up, the $25s are pretty good, the $100s are just right, and the $500s are very nice. All are 100% clean (no remaining dirt in the SCV/LCV rings and H&C), have had any rack checks carefully removed, and are beautifully oiled. The chips have been carefully sorted by mold (LCV/SCV), chip color, logo color, and condition. Flawed chips are noted with an asterisk rather than a bullet, with the flaw described in parenthesis.

Primary:
• $5 SCV Cherry Red with light blue/gold logo - 20x
• $25 SCV Dark Green with light blue/gold logo - 20x
* $25 SCV Dark Green with light blue/gold logo (faded inlays) - 30x
* $25 SCV Dark Green with dark blue/gold logo (dark discolored inlays) - 20x
* $500 SCV Purple with dark blue/gold logo (small nicks) - 10x

Secondary:
• $5 SCV Cherry Red - 140x
* $5 SCV Cherry Red (faded inlays) - 40x
• $5 SCV Brick Red - 220x


[HR][/HR]CHIPS WANTED[HR][/HR]These are chips that I'd like to add to my collection. I will consider trades or purchase.

Primary:
• $1 LCV or SCV - any amount
• $5 SCV Blood Red - 10x
• $25 LCV - 40x
• $100 LCV - 10x
• $100 SCV with light blue/gold logo - 15x
• $100 SCV with dark blue/gold logo - 11x
• $500 LCV - 6x

Secondary:
• $100 LCV or SCV - 20x or more
• $500 LCV or SCV - 20x or more
• $1000 LCV or SCV - 10x or more
