Ok Here goes my first wanted post. I am looking for some used $1 GV or something that would look nice with GV primary chips. Let's hear what everyone has that they would be willing to part with. These would be used for a low limit home game so they do not have to be mint. I know that sounds bad but these will be used frequently. Just looking at getting some more lower denoms. They can be average in condition and I would like 1 to 3 racks.

Not at all, mate! No shame in non-mint chips whatsoever, nor in low limit games. Good on you for seeking what you want and enjoying what you play.

If you don't mind mixed molds, you might try to get in on the second half of The Chip Room's Point Defiance sale, discussed here...

http://www.chiptalk.net/forum/threads/pointe-defiance-pre-sale.90758/

(sorry about the link to the other board, but the sale wasn't posted on this site)

They're hot-stamped and THC mold instead of RHC, but if you mill/sand the stamp off you can relabel them as GV's.

Other than that, you might try seeking some Terribles 1s if you can find someone willing to give them up.

GL w/your search!

Psypher1000. I. Wish I could get in on something like that but I have tried several times to get a confirmation email from that site to no avail. I even sent them a few emails and have received no response. I have been trying since Friday.

If you mean you've been trying to get a confirmation email from the other forum, I can't comment on their administration but you don't need to be a member of the forum to purchase chips from The Chip Room when the sale goes live. Email jim@thechiproom.com and ask to be put on his email list (be sure to whitelist thechiproom.com to make sure your email service doesn't flag his responses/messages as spam) to be notified of his sales directly.

If you mean you've been trying to get in touch with Jim/The Chip Room for some kind of confirmation, just use his email address above. He's out of office/busy quite a bit, but he's never done me wrong on a sale and most everyone I know on the forums will swear by his sales. He's also an approved retailer on both this site and the other, so that should be sufficient to vouch for him.

Jim has Aztar roulette chips for sale....25 cents each. They are Paulson's and with new labels, would make perfect inexpensive clay casino $1 chips....just a thought

Jim has been on vacation or something for a week or so. He's usually pretty good at returning emails otherwise.

I heard he is great.

Still hoping someone has something I can use for $1 chips. They don't need to be mint just usable.

Make sure you mention wanting 2 racks of RHC $1s when you email Jim. He'll have stuff in stock and not put a lot of effort into advertising that fact unless someone asks.

Reverse Hat and Cane, specifically. That's the mold the GV chips use. There's also the paulson THC molds you see on chips like the empress. The RHC chips use larger inlays and don't have a ring in the mold.

I am still in the hunt. Looking for any denom that I can use for $1 chips. They don't need to be pretty and i really do not want something that is highly sought after or collected. These will get some heavy use so if you have anything laying around I would be glad and more than happy to take them off your hands. Could use 200-300 of the same color. Preferably white but will settle for anther option.
