Paulson THC Pyramid Casino $5, $25, $100 with shaped inlays!

80 red $5 chips, sold
80 green $25 chips , sold
5 6! black 100 chips $40

Condition
See pictures above. I am not a professional grader but they have never been used and imho excellent, mint or near mint condition.¹ If you want more photos just ask.

Match With Paulson Fantasy Sets
As you may know these match the Paulson Casino De Isthmus City, aka CDI '98, JB '98, James Bond '98 from similar chips being used their use in the James Bond film License to Kill so can be used to fill out or add on those sets. The colors are imitated and spot pattern identical in the BCC CDI chips. See extensive footenote with more pictures.²

History
In the last footnote at the bottom I included a write up from The Casino Collectibles Association/CCGTCC on the Pyramid Casino chips which apparently had use in a cruise ship casino.³

Pricing¹
This was hard for me and I struggled but after a little looking it seems they have been been actually selling $10-$15 on eBay lately, and Spinettis is out of stock. I attached screenshots of what I could find last night from recent sales.

While not exactly the same I see a year ago on this site there was a large lot of CDI '98 sold for $5.20/chip here (click).

I will note that these CDI '98 match in color and edge spot patterns as stated above but do not have shaped inlays like these Pyramid Casino chips. That may explain in part why Pyramids seem to cost a bit more on average. Supply may play a role as well as demand too obviously

I was going to put my chips up for sale at $5 each ($10 for the 5 black chips). However it's worth something to me to have quick hassle free sales and I want to give a reasonable deal to the PCF community which I have enjoyed joining. To sell them in batches here is what I will offer for PCF members:
  • $45 for 6 black $100 chips ($7.50/chip) still available!
20221120_100812.jpg20221120_102413.jpg

20221120_100941.jpg
  • $360 for 80 red $5 chips ($4.50/chip)
  • $360 for 80 green $25 chips ($4.50/chip)
  • $720 for the whole set ($4.36/chip)
  • Shipping is $10 for any or all lots via USPS Priority Mail. I will ship and provide a tracking number within 24 hours.You can pay for USPS insurance at my cost if you want to add that.
  • I can take PayPal F&F, Venmo, Google Pay or probably even Amazon gift card. PayPal Goods and Services is acceptable but will have a 3% fee added to your total.
I am usually a chip buyer not seller so I know the value of good communication and will be super responsive. Let me know if you want more pictures or have any questions. I have sold some chips already to another member here and can furnish a recommendation on my packaging and prompt shipping.

To purchase, PM me with what you want and I will provide payment details. If there are multiple requests I will take the first response. I will consider best offers for less on a case by case basis. I think they will go pretty fast at this price however.

If you got this far, thanks for your consideration!

I have seen even fairly knowledgeable people here get parts of the list below wrong. I am not complete expert but I know of the following:
  1. Actual License to Kill movie set props made by Paulson on THC mold. These have unique color patterns and shaped inlays. These make unicorns look plentiful and are only owned by gods (if you are a god, please let me know and send pictures)! JamesBond10_2.jpg
  2. Paulson Casino De Isthmus City, aka CDI '98 on THC mold with shaped inlays. While not as rare as #1 above they are pretty hard to find and command much higher prices. The Pyramid Casino chips for sale here match theses CDI '98 in both colors and inlay shapes. FC4811BF-5D29-4B59-A251-AC8DE1C1E3F0.jpeg
  3. Paulson Casino De Isthmus City, aka CDI '98 on THC mold with round/standard inlays. These are more common and I provided a link to a large set of these a year ago in the Pricing section. The Pyramid chips will go with them in colors and pattern and would be easy to use together in a . If you search for CDI 98 here most pics will be of these chips.CD752812-6C47-4FC3-82EF-9994A9B820E6.jpeg
  4. Paulson CDI '05 made on "house" or "PAULSON" mold and all std/round inlays. These came out 7 years later and in general are not as desirable due to the lack of THC mold and perhaps the color pattern which all D14 and matches several other fantasy sets. IMHO they just aren't as pretty either but ymmv. My Pyramid Casino chips WOULD NOT make a good match with these. Search CDI 05 for pictures. 20210502_160219_HDR.jpg
  5. BCC CDI chips. These have larger round inlays than the Paulson chips discussed above, made on a different BCC mold but have similar/matching colors to the Paulson CDI 98 chips. I imagine there were lawsuits. 782E63BA-6734-43B9-95EF-F18745D07C9D.jpeg

The $5 chips have a taker. Assuming all goes well with payment they will be marked as sold.

Hey I want to say that I just did a deal with the StoneDonkey for several racks of chips. He was the seller and communicated great, packaged superbly, and shipped very very fast. He’s new here but he knows how to sell and ship chips. Great guy to deal with.

Regs must all know already what a gem Kevin is. He helped me in so many ways beyond our transaction. My wife said tonight "you found your people haven't you?" Lol
