Hey, new here. Live in Texas. My collection is over 1500 Casino de Isthmus 98 THC chips. Hope to learn more here.

I don't know what happened to my post, so here goes another one. I live in North Texas and started building my home set of Casino de Isthmus chips around 99-2000. I consider myself lucky since they don't make the THC one anymore. I also buy sample sets from time to time to see what is out there. I now have slightly more than 1500 chips in my collection. Took a few years to get it where it is at to date. Bought a good chunk while in Vegas from a now defunct business, wish I would have bought more of their Paulson chips (Casino de Mexico, Scandia, etc) cause they had those too. Love seeing every ones collection.

Enjoy the PMs that are probably blowing up your in box for those fracs and $1ks! Haha

Seriously beautiful set. I own the 05 version which you know are not on the THC mold

Any plans for future sets? Or just looking to expand your 98 collection?

Wow! That is a serious huge set you have!! I just a sample set of the 05’s, still a great chip! Would like to expand but very cost prohibitive. Would like a custom set one of there days from CPC, I like their dice/card mold.

Since you showed me yours, I'll show you mine

This is not quite complete. I have a bunch that I still need to clean, a few handfuls still on their way to me, and a case of stuff that's sitting on the other side of an impassable international border.

Some of us CDI lovers on the forum have procured / had manufactured some custom dealer buttons, cut cards, bounty chips, seating chips, etc. to match with the inlay theme. Perhaps you'd like to enhance your collection with some of these accessories!

Berny you have 2 dark racks of $5s and 2 racks of light? When I owned these it was split down the middle! Someone out there may have both and make a trade.

Very cool and nice set. The 25 (left front) and the 5K and 10Ks look like other Paulson chips with a custom sticker? I have original 98 Dealer buttons and a few set of cards, and 3 sets of CDI dice (dark red, light red and orange).

Welcome! Going to go out on a limb and say that you acquired those chips at a fraction of the cost it would take to put it together today. Great set!

Sorry, no links, they aren't a stock item. But I believe @BR Pro Poker has the art and can custom make more as long as they have permission from the original provider.

I have some cut cards coming to me right now and I'll make sure to save a pair for you.

Good eye on the customs. The 0.25, 5k, and 25k are made from CdM 1, 200, and 50 respectively. I will be making nickels soon from CdM 19 because apparently I hate money.

Brie has the art for 60mm buttons but our green on the buttons is almost more of an army green/olive compared to the original!

We also have the art for custom bounties on 47mm ceramics

Going to be a while before/if we run seating chips again!

The bounties are just cool!
