Has anyone ever seen a non-Cali $500 casino chip that was larger than 39mm?

Cali casinos seem to use 43mm for $100 and up
Everywhere else seem to use 43mm for $1000 and up.

Would this pretty much be the standard?

Ok cool. Interesting chip colors. Never saw a yellow $1 chip before. I like those blue RHC .50 chips.



Ever thought about getting some of those to label?

It's a nice looking chip for sure. I was saying label them as quarters. :cool: More useful that .50 chips IMO.

I'd just be interested in the Paulson chips. What are those other casinos nearby you? :)

The only casinos near me that use Paulson are over 2 hours away. Everything nearby uses Icon and/or really worn out Chipcos.

I'm loving the Baccarat Paulsons as well so I'd buy a set of those and that Century Casino if you can get them :).

This actually gives me an idea. Tommy what about having a section where people can post what local casinos they are near and what the chips look like and those that are willing could offer sample sets from their local casinos to those that are interested in purchasing them. Maybe being it would be a larger forum effort we all agree to charge just face value plus shipping in the thought that you'll get the chance to buy cool samples from other peoples local casinos? Idk maybe its a Terrible idea lol. I've got two local casinos near me so if people were interested in sample sets I'd be willing to try and get them. I've only ever had the .50/1/5 at Running Ace's Harness Park as I'm not baller enough to use the 25's or 100s but here's what they look like: http://www.themogh.org/cg_chip2.php?id=MNCORA&sort=type
The other somewhat nearby one (about an hour away) is Hinckley Grand Casino: http://www.themogh.org/cg_chip2.php?id=MNHIGC
I've gotten the 2.50, 5, 25, and 100 when playing blackjack but I've never gotten the .50 or 1 dollar. Maybe those are used for poker or a rake I'm not sure.

A dedicated thread might be better than a new section with a few threads in it for now. I believe the .50 chip can be used when a BJ table min bet is $1 too. I remember a casino in AC using real quarters on their BJ tables. Probably 20 years ago.

Yes, Paulson, B&G, Bud Jones, and Matsui. Dunno about Sun-Fly or GOCC. Spinetti's has them for sale.
