Those don't look like Paulson colors or boxes, look more like ASM/Burts, but I don't know if they ever owned the web mold prior to BCC and Paulson acquiring it. @BGinGA @AK Chip

WEB MOLD -- 20 "diamonds." 1930's to late 1990's, owned exclusively by Ace Sportworks, NYC, and then Marion and Co., NYC and North Miami. Both firms used the Burt Co. to manufacture the chips until about 1995, when the manufacturing was turned over to the Paulson Company until it was acquired by the large French firm, Bourgogne et Grasset/GPI Corp. Chips with this mold were hardly ever used in licensed casinos. Rather the chips were made for illegal clubs (such as Outhwaite's in Saratoga NY) and home games

My god, that mold has been around. Hard to tell from the pics, probably would need to see/feel one to help figure out what company made it.

My bet is they're Burt Cos just because of the monogram hotstamp. I think if they were BCC the hotstamp would be a lot more interesting than a run-of-the-mill monogram, and I bet Paulson wasn't offering the web mold for in solids for home game customs or we'd have heard more about it before. Whereas there's buckets and buckets of Burt Co monograms kicking around in people's attics and garages.

all speculation on my part

A bit of an oversight on Robert Eisenstadt's description there that he didn't mention BCC's use of the mold.

^^ Beat me to it, although GPI did not get possession of the web mold until they purchased the Blue Chip Co. assets in 2012 -- the Endy's kept the mold when Paulson merged with B&G in 2002. Both Paulson and BCC made a few sets using it..

The chips in the OP were made by Burt Co., probably for Marion & Co.

So, then, do I have this right:

1930s - Ace Sportworks owned the mold, Burt produced some chips
Later - Marion owned the mold, Burt produced some chips
1990s - Paulson owned the mold, Paulson produced some chips
2002 - The Endys, and then later Michael Patton of Holdem Poker Chips owned the mold, BCC produced some chips
2012 - GPI owns the mold, nobody has produced any chips

Paulson used it to make the Web Mold Scandia fantasy set, not to be confused with the THC Scandia fantasy set. And some custom spotted hotstamps, it seems?

BCC used it to make Riverboats, and some custom sets, both inlaid and hotstamped, it seems?

It's interesting that the molds could be adapted from the Burt Co equipment and processes over to the Paulson equipment and again over to the BCC equipment.

Not clear if Patton actually owned the mold (I thought so, but could be wrong). Also don't remember if the other custom non-HPC chips BCC produced on that mold were made with his permission or just BCC's. Or how Michael ended up with blank Paulson web mold chips.... or were those BCCs?

I have 23 of the web mold cups securely packed away. 1 is MIA and 4 were never given back to Michael when BCC assets were acquired.

Both web mold and tmolds were included in the bill of sale when I purchased the estate but the actual tmold cups have never been located.
Sadly cpc has said they couldn't use the web molds so the likelihood of them being produced again are slim.

Sad I sold off my big Speakeasy MTT set. Gave it away for almost pennies.
VERY nice set thinking back to playing with it all the time we got to :)

So now they are for sale on Ebay by Dr. Dahl?? They look like ASM/Burt colors to me as well.
