I like searching through my chips to find the sneaky ones that made it past quality control. I have found a handful to date so I guess I'm an Error Chip collector as well. Please post pictured of your error chips. They can be real casino or customs. Let's see what you have!

I'll start with this one I just located. I have never seen another Mapes $5 error. It should have a green, yellow and black spot pattern but the green is missing and it has two yellows.

I think unlike die struck coins for which occurrences of “errors” are rare amongst the automated machines (say one in a million), these poker chips are mostly made via by hand and thus such errors as missing edge spots or wrong inlays are more common.

Some companies like ASM/CPC quality check them (probably visually) before they are sent and pick out the bad ones, and they do include some extras to make up for the possible mistakes.

Some companies like BCC will tell you that it’s normal to have grossly off-center inlays, split edge spots, spinners, and chips that will forever seem chalky unless you oil them.

But I think it’s actually pretty rare to see errors on Paulson chips. Maybe it’s their better process, maybe it’s their strict inspection to discard errors before they make it out.

I have a few Paulson error chips, and have seen misshapen inlays that make BCC's worst efforts seem pretty decent. But considering the volume of chips they have produced over the years, I'd venture to say that their error rate is pretty damn impressive.

Although I've seen plenty of Paulson chips with split edge spots, and warped chips are pretty common in the GPI card pips (suits) mold offerings.

Does it make me weird that I was secretly hoping to find an error chip with my customs? Damn Jimb and his excellent quality control.

Does one of my China Pharoah's with a incorrect sticker count? :p

I love this thread. Keep em coming. Reminds me of my childhood collecting basketball cards and was always obsessed with print error cards! :)

weird.. I thought I made sure they were all good the ones I sent out.

sorry about that. The seems to be the only mess up in the entire set though
Hi spikeithard, that's no problem and nothing to worry about. I am displaying the good side of the chip only [emoji12]

Does this count as “missing” edge spots?

No, I did not attempt to take a bite out of these $5k mint chocolate chips. They came this way straight from BCC. I guess some edge spots just “fell out.”

BCC quality control at its finest.
