What you have is a genuine Paulson starburst. If it had a casino logo behind it, it would be a cancellation stamp. As is I believe they were sold in the Paulson store when they still sold home chips.

The reason the one you are holding in that pic feels "lighter" is because most of the chips on the home market are heavier than chips used in casinos. "Official casino weight" is not 11.5g, 13g, or anything like that. Most Paulsons are in the 9-10 gram range. Chipcos and other ceramics are in the same range too.

The Marlboro chips aren't necessarily "fake" - they were just never intended to be used in a casino. They certainly could be legitimate marketing items offered by Marlboro.
