I have decided to split off a piece of my personal set of Lac Courte Oreilles chips (i.e., LCO, pronounced lah-coot-oh-ray). These chips are the heavy leaded Paulson clay formulation on the THC mold, with shaped inlays on the high denominations. The chips were used in this small northern Wisconsin casino for about 25 years. The chips in this set are the absolute best quality chips in existence, having been hand-sorted and ultrasonically cleaned by me from the original horde. I package extremely well, and all chips ship FOB from my post office. Additional insurance can be purchased (as available). As with other used casino sets, some chips have rack checks that may or may not come off with cleaning. I used a Magic Eraser to easily clean up several in my keeper set. This auction is for one complete set of all-THC chips with the following breakdown:

  • $0.50 = 120 (these are the only fracs ever put up for sale). All these fracs have edge chips/wear as the casino only had ~300 total fracs in circulation for 25 years.
  • $1 = 200 (SC = sorted + cleaned top condition)
  • $5 = 200 SC
  • $25 = 80 SC
  • $100 = 20 SC

The winner of this auction will have the option to purchase the following 500 chip add-on to make one larger set for bigger games and higher stakes at multiple tables. The cost of the add-on will be the final closing price of this primary auction minus $200 (i.e., as the add-on does not contain any fracs). If the winner decides to not purchase the add-on, the add-on chips may be auctioned separately or I'll just keep them.
  • $1 = 200
  • $5 = 200
  • $25 = 80
  • $100 = 20

As part of the group split I bid $250 on Fracs, and I’ll bid $420 on the add on (current high bid of 620 - 200 since no fracs).
Probably better to contact current high bidders in a few days with side deals, just to keep things simpler on this one.

Smart move ending the auction on Father’s Day. Wives can’t get too mad if we buy something for ourselves that day!
This auction happens to end on Father's Day? Who knew.... :eek: :D
