Does anyone have these for sale? Either barrels or a rack maybe?
I don't think I have even seen these come up for sales before in the classifieds, so this could be an astronomical* long shot.

I haven't seen any of them, and I don't think @cpiaaq came across any either when he brought some of the Outposts to the market over 10 years ago. These may have been part of the $100s that were stolen by the partner/casino manager guy that got ripped off from John the owner back in the day? I know someone stole some of the hundreds at one point. How many and which ones, I'm not entirely certain though.

Also, there weren't a lot of Pachecos that came through us or John the owner. His ex-wife ran that casino, and I'm guessing most of the chips from there are either still with her or transferred to someone she knew that wanted them, or lost/thrown away by now.

Thanks for the info!

I guess my “astronomical* long shot” is true then.:(

I've never seen a Pacheco $100 in the wild, or either $1000 chip.

The $1000 chips weren't live chips. They were just giveaway prizes for various events. They all had holes drilled in them and were turned into keychains.

My understanding is the giant inlay San Ramon $100s were the ones stolen. Owner told me the dimes were stolen too (In an unrelated conversation), so anything is possible. He refused to sell me any $100s at all because of the theft, and I could tell he was still mad when I asked.

You could probably find a barrel or rack of California Bell $1s to relabel. The base color is a dark blue, not black, and there are slighly darker blue $1s, like the barrel on the right in the photo below. Most of the $1s tend to be in better shape and still fit 20 to a barrel.

Thanks for all the suggestions! Ill keep those in mind.
To be honest, I hardly ever get $100 chips into play with my small group of friends. These are more for "set completion" purposes than anything else.
