I love the vineyards too ... my favorite non-leader chips. Do you think I have any shot at building at small set? I have 5’s &20’s but would need 2-3 racks of ones and another rack or 5’s...I abandoned my effort many years ago when they all dried up.

I think theres a fair chance. They've been floating around the classifieds often enough I'd say once a month maybe. Seems more of the higher denoms are getting moved around. You can try a wanted add for a few months, and just keep an eye on the classifieds we've had some big sales and sets go up in the new year, so you never know

Nice King’s casino fracs. Get those from eBay?
Yes... Fee-bay ... at least the seller was pretty cool and cut the price down for me. Several of the kings’s fracs chips have a very slight warp to them. It’s not overly noticeable and easily forgotten when shuffling... love the feel & weight of them. Do you know if this is common with these chips? They came in an original Paulson plastic box and appeared to have never been touched but must have sat in storage for many years.

Warping is fairly common with hot stamping, its also a result of poor storage (not likely by you by previous owners) sometimes when the chips are stored in hot/cold/humid (not controlled air quality) it causes additional warping
