I've seen plenty of Paulson chips with hotstamps and inlays, but I've never seen a true blank chip (hat & cane mold, whichever version) that absolutely has nothing in the middle except the base color. I'm not talking about chips with inlays/hotstamps removed, but original pure blanks.

I've never seen one, have any of you?

Nope. Paulson doesn't let them out of the factory without at least a hotstamp. Blank hat-and-cane chips essentially don't exist. (You might see ONE very rarely, but certainly not in bulk.)

I was specifically referring to the more prevalent hat & cane molds, but very interesting. I haven't seen that webmold outside of some president inlay chips I have. Didn't know they were offered as blanks.

The Paulson web molds are gorgeous chips with incredibly vibrant colors. Does anybody know the story behind them?

there have been some webmold blanks, though.

dammitjim (long-standing member on CT) recently posted a pic of a blank THC chip (thrown in for good measure while posting a number of web mold chips in his collection). Only one I've ever seen:

It seems that the web mold was owned by BCC at one point. BCC offered blanks for their other lines of chips so this is not a surprise. BCC wasn’t selling a lot of casino chips so they don't have a lot of pressure about security.

BCC made these quarter pie custom chips on the web mold – check it out. The Riverboat, for retailer Holdem Poker Chips. Very sexy.

MSPatton had acquired the cups at some point after 2006 and offered them for sale in October 2011. During that time he used BCC to produce the Riverboats. Perhaps another member can provide additional details.

Earlier provenance is provided by Robert Eisenstadt here (see MD-91). Briefly, it was owned by Ace Sportworks and then by Marion & Co. Chips were produced by the Burt and then by Paulson (pre-GPI).
