    Finally, after months of grabbing singles anywhere I could find them, I have a playable Grand Casino Gulfport set!
    The $1.00's are very difficult to find. I have 40 of them, so far, acquired in 16 different transactions. Special thanks to @AWenger for the last 13, and special thanks to @Gear for most of the larger chips.

    I got this case to be a compact travel case, assuming it would hold 100 chips. It doesn't. It holds 92. But that number actually works pretty well. Each side holds 15 - $1's, 20 - $5's, 10 - $25's and 1 - $100, for starting stacks of $450 (holding back 6 - $5's to color up the ones), which gives you 225 big blinds, starting at $1/$2

    Here they are all racked up, with a few extras. I actually think the snapper is the second prettiest chip in the set.
    And what exactly does a casino do with undenominated NCV chips?

    Obligatory splashed pot.

    I have two more $1's on the way, and my ultimate goal is to have two racks of them, so 158 to go. If you have any, hit me up!

    Very nice! If you're ever in DC, bring along the set, and I'll play you heads up!

    Only a guess, but maybe tournament chips, promotional chips/match play, (drink tokens?)

    I think this is probably my all time favorite casino cash set. The only contender for me would be Lakeshore Inn.

    Perfection really!
