    I was browsing ebay listings and came across these 500 pink diamond mold chips advertised as clay. The pictures aren’t that great. I first submitted a lowball offer. After thinking about it a few minutes, decided to gamble and bin for $75.

    Huge score if they are clay. Good luck!

    Awesome! Hope they turn out to be 'clay'.

    The $10 chip looks familiar to a chip in this listing, also $15/rack. Chips are dirty and I can't tell if marks I'm seeing are injection spots or flea bites, but seller claims to have 1000+, so maybe cherry picking is possible.

    I agree, those look like plastic. The weird thing is I have a bunch of legit diamond mold Paulson's that all came in those exact same blue boxes. Maybe your pink chips originally came in those boxes. Eager to see some pics of your pinks!

    I think this is the same guy that had like 20 thousand of these chips that he claimed were from the same lot. I remember a for sale add for them for like 4000 dollars..........i had him send me a bunch of pictures and he said they were vintage clay chips but I was 99 percent sure they were plastic.

    Yeah, I’m waiting on those pink ones to arrive..they look legit. Those purple ones though are obviously plastic. I don’t think he can tell the difference.

    They arrived today. To me, they look like the real deal. No injection marks, lathe marks along the edges, even a faint “paulson clay” scent.

    Genuine compression molded "clay" indeed! Too bad you didn't get their original blue boxes. Great score!

    Yeah, too bad about the boxes. They came in decent looking racks. I bought the remainder of the chips from the seller (not the purple ones, lol). He had some in green and white, but those were dirty and more worn. I’ll see if he has any of the boxes he can send them in.

    As you can see, there is some slight color variance. I’ll see if a bath and oiling will clear that up. If not, I’ll do some sorting and separate into similar colors. I’ll have about 1200 of these pink ones. Time to get that drill press outta the box:sneaky:

    So, 15 cents apiece? Hell of a deal. Well done.
