I recently purchased the retired chips from the Lac Courte Oreilles (LCO) casino in northern Wisconsin (pronounced: lah-coot-oh-ray). These LCO chips are leaded THC-mold Paulsons, with shaped inlays on the higher denominations. The chips were used in this very small casino for 25 years, and are in much better shape than the non-leaded RHC formulation chips I have seen (for example, from the CIN/CLE Horseshoe buys).

I've bundled the following breakdown of chips to maximize the number of available sets. The pics below are a randomly selected set, so nothing has been sorted or cleaned.
  • n=100 x $2 THC chips (potential use as a frac) <---only available as part of a set, no single rack sales
  • n=300 x $1 THC chips
  • n=300 x $5 THC chips
  • I'm also including a free rack of ceramic $5 chips, for those with games that need four racks of $5s
  • n=80 x $25 THC chips with shaped inlays
  • n=20 x $100 THC chips with shaped inlays

Price for a complete THC set is $1,700 + shipping (e.g., $19 for LFRB) via PayPal F+F or buyer pays fees. Buyers assume shipping risk (FOB my post office), but insurance is available for purchase per standard USPS terms and rates, and international buyers are welcome. I package extremely well. 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 clean up several in my set. For stand alone purchases, or for add-ons to these sets, I have more $1s available for $200/rack + additional mixed racks of $25/$100 available for $300/rack (80/20 mix).

I am open to trades for interesting chips, including: a rack of Palais de Congres $5 and maybe a rack of PdC $10 + Wynn charity event T25s + Empress Star secondary tournament chips (especially T25k and T100k). If you have TRK Deadwoods, PM me so we can work something out! Pics below are close-ups of representative chips pulled from a random set to show condition:

At just over $2/ (not counting the free ceramics) these are a fantastic buy IMO. Heck you could probably recoup some costs by selling the yellows and finding a new frac.

I stumbled across these chips on the chip database when looking at Wisconsin chips. I was wondering if any of these were around. Here’s my answer! Not in the market for a full set. Those hundos are awesome!

GLWS!

These are amazing chips! They are buttery smooth, and it was a treat to play with these at the MN meetup in September. Amazing price, and even more amazing chipper. GLWS.

If anyone has not done business with Forrest, he’s a top notch person (on and off the felt).

@bentax1978 would this work for your friend's $1/$2 needs? Or not deep enough?
It’d be plenty deep, but way more than he’s have been willing to spend. Despite playing with over half a dozen of my finest Paulson sets almost weekly over a five year span, neither he nor the rest of the group ever cared of we played with paulsons or dice chips :(

New year, new price of $1500 for three available sets, based on posting in this thread. If you have been on the fence, now is the time to take action. I have also sorted the $1 chips and removed the chips with large defects from the population, so the racks of $1s that are included will be very nice indeed. I will list the more used $1s in the future as a part of limit sets.

That's a sub $2 price for leaded THCs, including shaped inlays for the high denominations, and with a rack of beautiful yellow $2s (for fracs or potential resale), which is simply ludicrous.

Edit: And for those who have expressed concerns for my well being, nothing's going on beyond tidying up the storage area a little.... :p:D

Wow, fantastic price!

Fantastic looking chips! I’d like to know more about how they feel vs other clay chips. GLWS
Ok, here’s how they feel compared to other chips... in tactile terms... say Dice chips are sandpaper, and china clays are maybe concrete texture... and general Paulsons are like a smooth baby bottom, well these leaded THC chips are like that soft velvet plush stuffed toy that you want to squeeze and snuggle up next to...

Use nothing but dice chips until your Paulsons will get some new respect.
