Hi everyone. I just joined the forum and thought I'd post a question about some chips. I got these as samples about 15 years ago and I don't have any record of what they are. I believe I bought them from Apache. Can someone identify who made them? It's interesting to see how some of the spots have developed pale areas. The chips were stored in a dark place.

Thanks for the help.

Those are considered China clay on the spirit mold, probably made 15-20 years ago, and they look to be knocking off Paulson Classics.
If you search “spirit mold” here on PCF, you’ll see some other examples.

Thanks! Yes, I can see them here on PCF and see that a few are still for sale at Chips and Games. Definitely Paulson color scheme.
 
Top row are the original design 'china clay' chips on the spirit mold, made by Eastony Industries (the mold image was their short-lived company logo, a reverse-image of the Sprint logo).

Eastony also made spirit mold blanks in solid colors, two-color 412-spotted, and three-color 4d14 spotted chips (pictured above) that were sold on several online poker chip sites.

Similar spot/color combos with different labels (Pyramid Casino and Casino da Vinci) were imported/sold by Da Vinci Imports.

The bottom row 6a14 spirit mold chips were later commissioned by unknown persons and sold on eBay.
