Per the title.

This is going to be a difficult one to locate, I already know this. Doesn't hurt to ask though, right?

Offering $20 for a single chip. Thanks for looking!

I used to have 1 barrel but sold it, can’t remember to who. I think @dennis63 told me once that only 300 exist (but I could be wrong). Good luck! Love the KW chips.

Bump.

Offering face value for a single chip if it helps shake one loose.

There's a guy over at the Key West Owner's Gallery here at PCF with a picture of a barrel of these in his possession.

Don't know if he will be willing to let any go, but grovelling continuously is always a a good start. That is how I managed to shake some 'Wanted' chips loose when some fine folks here took pity on my begging. Otherwise the following method should also work :-

If it was my pic, they’re regrettably long gone... But here is my pic...

Bump in compassion :)
Btw, why can't they be produced again?
I guess 300 of them would be the minimum quantity (?)

@JMC9389 -- How did I miss this thread? PM sent.

We can have more of these made, but we'd have to wait for the next run on the H mold. It just got rotated out, so it will be some time. (A year, maybe?)

If there is interest, it would be no problem to add to a Key West order with Classic.

Like always...Denni to the rescue
You're the best that could ever happen to the Key West brand.

Stil don't understand why many more don't own a Key West set...these are by FAR the best offering besides custom CPC's (and a LOT cheaper, no waiting)
I think in 80% of the case my players ask the KW set...and my other sets are not to shabby (PCA, AS, BCC custom, ...)

Some history on the charcoal $20 --

This charcoal and red version of the Key West $20 was suggested by a Chiptalk member in late 2012. Looking over our records, I was able to find two Key West production runs that included the charcoal $20.

We ordered 80 of them in January, 2013, and had them in hand by March. We ordered 100 more in an order placed in May of that year.

I recall that one member bought a rack of 100 of them. About 50 or so went out in sample sets sold in 2013 and 2014. I have about 20 in my office. There are a few others floating around, but based on the records I have, I believe only 180 exist.

Wow, 180 that's not many!
I like the charcoal 20 on its own, but in the context of the cash set I think the yellow/green $20 works better (mainly because I don't need the $100)
Still a great chip to own with so few in existence.
Good luck

Yes, I agree...great chip but prefer the yellow/green current version also (my KW limit set has 1000 white ones & 200 20's)

Ps. there are also 2 racks of quarters floating around with 5c or 5K colors (I think it was 5K)
