Found some old leaded textured fracs for sale and couldn't help myself:

I'd like to find a rack or two of $1 chips for sale to go with these. (Then I can worry about a $5 later, and maybe a milled solid micro frac.)

I need spotted THC Cali chips. Inlaid. No hot stamp garbage. Used is fine. Bicycle tires are not.

Here are some ideas I randomly found from a chipguide search.

Discussion is fine. I could not care less about shaped inlay or spot progression. I really like the idea behind this set and hope I can pull it off someday.

So what do you have? What's out there? Thank you my friends.

I’ve spent the last 4 years tracking down chips for Cali sets haha, I’ve crossed off ones that are essentially unavailable in quantity from everything I’ve seen.
Casino Real $1s are live and harvestable, but fairly used
OCC $1s are out there, but also pretty heavily used and scarce.
The Capitol City are fantasy chips and also exceedingly rare.
Never seen any 133 or Bills chips anywhere
El Dorado are pretty abundant but borderline bike tires
Marysvillw transitioned to plastic chips

available:
King’s Casino $1s are near mint and around $450/ rack last I saw
I have 1100 Camino $1s that are approaching bike tires
Best bet might be just going out of state blues to something like LCO $1s
Montbleu $1 2Vs are life and harvestable in Tahoe...just across the state line in Nevada haha

Nice. I'd take a rack of those $5s. Green $1 chips are no good with green 50c chips.

Anybody help a guy out?

Looking at the chips, there is always this I suppose:

But the lead is out, the texture is gone, and we've crossed a state line.

At this point I'd open it up to inlaid leaded textured spotted THC $1 chips from anywhere. Prefer non-white, so blue most likely I suppose. Show me what you have?

I do have a lead on some El Dorados. Those might work, they may not.

LCO $1 chips are leaded. I have one of their 50c chips. As long as the rack or racks weren't too "bicycle tire" that might be a great option.
