Fellow Chipper Ben
The gray chips were used as their $5.00 chips .All nondenominational. Most of the casino royale are also non-denominated except for the $1’s which are on one side
Hal Mar Inn chips are a favorite of mine , also .
I haven't found many brother, JW that is. Current count is
You can add my 309x $1s, 168 $5s, 6x $20s to the count. I have no original fracs.I haven't found many brother, JW that is. Current count is
(74) x $.50
(250ish) x $1
(285) x $5
(63) x $20
I know of (1200) $5s between 3 owners not including Justin's (I think he is damn close to 200 now) Plus someone in the UK owns some that hasn't logged on in a while from my understanding. Maybe 1700 - 1800 of the $5s.
I know of 2 that have (200) of the $1s plus my 250. So probably 700 plus $1s.
Total I think almost (200) of the $20s are accounted for, but not confirmed.
Then just a few singles of the fracs outside of the (74) I have
I have 200 of the SCV San Ramon quarters and a single LCV lolI can personally account for these, independent of @RainmanTrail’s haul
Have to check my notes for San Ramon, but at least
Those are definitely part of the 400 I listedI have 200 of the SCV San Ramon quarters and a single LCV lol
Never see those 50c from either casino, I don't think I've seen any outside of a single here and there.
I hope this is wrong. There's a rumor of a rack in [redacted]'s collection. There were also, iirc, 70 put into sample sets.Pacheco had fewer chips. Not really sure how many though, other than the yellow dimes, which only had one rack total ever made.
You should put the dealer buttons through a rock tumbler so they match the condition of the rest of the setThe bumping of this thread and re-reading the OP reminded me that I have a nugget of history regarding California Bell chips.
I recently bought a 6 rack lot of $1 Cali Bells. This is a note I jotted down after picking them up:
The seller Larry told me how he and his business partner (Cesare... I think) acquired these from the casino in the '80's when the casino was going bankrupt. These were the last of the original haul. Literally, this was the guy who got the Cali Bells from the casino. He said there were about 80k chips in all. He remembers driving away with the chips in file boxes in the back of his Toyota pickup. It slammed the suspension on the pickup. He said there were only about 20 racks of the white hundos. He also mentioned that there were some un-circulated chips. He said they sold quite a few originally to the dealer schools in Vegas.
