I am trying to find some candidates to finish out a house mold set. I currently have Caesars $1s and SPM T100 relabeled as Stardust $5s.

I would like to find some 5c and 25c candidates. I'm expecting these will be relabels (potentially inlay replacements). I'm just looking for singles at the moment to figure out what I like.

Criteria:
  • Ideally a house mold with a Las Vegas casino name (but I'm entertaining some THC and RHC)
  • Must be manufactured after 2006. My wife has a "no lead" rule.
  • Preference for colorful chips that go well with my Caesars and SPM chips
  • Chips must be readily available. I will eventually need 1 or 2 racks of each denomination.
I'm currently looking for the following:
  • $1 Monte Carlo (house mold)
  • $1 Excalibur (modern design / house mold / small inlay)
  • $1 Luxor (house mold)
  • $1 4-Queens (house mold / white with small inlay)
  • $1 Planet Hollywood (house mold - not Aladdin)
  • $1 Venetian (THC)
  • $1 Golden Nugget Lake Charles (house mold)
  • $1 Caesars Southern Indiana (RHC)
  • $1 Jerry's Nugget (THC)
  • 25c MGM Grande Detroit (house mold)

If you have something else that meets my criteria, please let me know. We can figure out a price through PM.

Thanks!

I was thinking of the Horseshoe Club with the Benny Binion inlay. However, those are really nice too. Since I'm trying to avoid leaded chips, I have to make my own and adding a label is easier than adding a hotstamp.
Ah gotcha! Does she have an allergy? Or just dislikes lead?

My wife is not a fan of having leaded chips in the house. That makes it a lot harder.
There really is no danger. I've got a toddler in my home. As long as they are out of reach, and you don't try to grind them up and snort the dust, it's all good. At least, that's what I think about it.

I harvested 4 MINT uncirculated racks of Excaliburs 2 years ago. they are definitely out there and would be perfect for a frac. Alternatively, you could go for the planet Hollywood quarter pies or....
“Almond” Tropicana or Mirage $1’s.

Golden Nugget deuces are drop chips. I have one and wouldn't consider them 'readily available....' You'd have to bribe someone in the GN poker room to get a rack............

I wasn't aware that was a drop chip. That is disappointing. It is a pretty chip.

What colors are you looking into or ruling out? These are available in qty and still likely in great condition:

I like the look of those. My only concern is the color is too close to my $5 chip.

The main colors I'm considering at the moment are brown, purple, white, yellow and gray. I'm trying to avoid traditional greens and blacks as I associate those with $25 and $100.
