Trying to make some labels that match my paris chips. Anybody know what fonts are used on the chips?
 
Post a pic?

The word Paris appears to be hand-drawn. You may need to scan it, and then clean it up in a vectorizing program or the like. Or take a pic, blow it up, and trace it.

The type on a curve around the inlay looks like it is two different weights of some not very distinguished serif font, with the denom the same face but even bolder.

It is not dissimilar to this free font, but this is only in the ballpark:

Thanks!

It was the curved part of the inlay I am struggling with. Tried various what font is this sites with no luck.

If anyone who has made custom inlays would like to share I would appreciate it.
 
The typeface you're looking for is Weiss. Make sure to get the Bold Condensed font, it looks like a match.

I agree with @Taghkanic, the logo is likely hand drawn.
 
I got that but thanks anyway! How did you find the exact typeface? Would be nice to know how to do it for future projects.
I edited my reply above when I found the logo in multiple formats online. Link is there if anyone else needs it.
For typeface identification, I use Identifont. In the "Font by appearance" tab, you answer questions based on characters you do have, and answer "not sure" for ones you don't. Unless you're absolutely positive about the answer, it's ok to still answer "not sure".
It's very good at narrowing down the typefaces. Even if the final answer is not what youre looking for, some of the secondary choices it provides are likely the match.

I’m wondering if there has been some variation in the weights between different ages of Paris chips. (On the one I looked at for reference, the One Dollar type appeared much thicker than the Las Vegas, NV part.)

Yeah I saw that too..there is a Weiss extra bold condensed, could be that. Even on the image I posted above, the denom is thicker.
