I keep seeing these acronyms around when Paulson chips are discussed and probably one or two more I haven't mentioned.

I guess SCV and LCV stand for short cane version and long cane version respectively. But what does the R in RHC stand for? Is it the mold with the hat and cane alternately flipped horizontally?

Paulson has also produced home market chips on the PAULSON CHIPS mold, the card pip mold (commonly referred to as 'suits'), and the Paradise mold (sometimes called the pineapple mold). They also produced some butt-ugly 41mm chips on the Paulson Pro Series mold back in 2011-2012, which were sold by paulsonpoker.com (now defunct).

And the 50mm crest & seal mold (casinos only) is actually smooth with no mold markings at all. No idea what their other mold (46mm?) mold is called.

I think the CT/chip hoarding community may have fallen into a "Standard" set of abbreviations that are a refinement of the Eisenstadt, Chipguide, and perhaps even CCGTCC versions. "H&C" (Hat and Cane) seems to be their default abbreviation for any Paulson chip with a hat and cane on it. "We" seem to refer to RHC (Reverse Hat and Cane) as a mold unto itself and SCV (Short Cane Version) and LCV (Long Cane Version) as subsets of THC (Top Hat and Cane). This makes sense in that the two THC molds are virtually identical except for the length and angle of the cane in the hat whereas the RHC mold, in addition to having two canes reversed, and fatter hats, has no outer ring and a larger inlay area.

Here’s the difference between a Paulson LCV and the C&J LCV chip, in case anyone’s wondering.

The Paulson 48mm chip w/ the hat & cane is simply called the RHC mold. One cane is reversed.

Worth noting that the C&J chips were actually manufactured by Burt Company (the predecessor to ASM/CPC) using a different process and materials than when Paul-Son bought the mold from Pat Sullivan and started making their own chips. Previously, Paul-Son also sold the 'shiny hat' chips made by Burt Company -- in fact, they sold more of them than did Christy & Jones.
