If you don't mind paying around $3.50 per chip.
Which probably isn't a horrible price, if you don't mind the hideous inlay
I know these have been kicking around, but there's always some newbs asking how to get Paulson chips. An easy way, is to overpay on ebay. And again, if you like these chips as is, I'm not sure it's that much of an overpay. I assume these are leaded (though I'm not sure) - tell me where you can get minty leaded Paulson THC's, that can be put together in playable sets, for under four bills a rack.

I've always liked the $1 in that set. Don't think I'd go above $1.50 each though.
These are kinda all over the place, pricewise here. Seems like they're selling from anywhere between $1.50 and $2.75 apiece. But I don't see why. Again, racks of chips that are available in playable distributions that are mintish leaded THCs generally sell for more than that.

Minor quibble -- those are Fabulous Las Vegas, not Viva Las Vegas.

Pretty major quibble for those of us who're looking for exactly Vivas :/

Still, nice chips if the plan is to relabel.

flvs are really nice chips. 3.50 is not an outrageous price. maybe a little high, but i paid in that range a few times when I was putting a set together. (sold my set maybe a year ago)

Mostly i paid around 2.50 or 2.75 a chip. which is a great deal in my opinion. Maybe my favorite fantasy set. the 1s and 5s are awsome.

Love those $1s. No clue how many are included in that lot though, as the seller didn't seem to care to add those details.

pretty sure no 1s are included. just 25s and 100s.

25s and 100s are the easiest to find on these. then 5s then 1s. If I could find 1s for 3.50 per that would be a snap buy.

$100's are actually really hard to find. In general the entire set is hard to find. I have been building mine for years.

First auction has $1s in the photos and the auction title. Just no description of the breakdown.

EDIT: Seller confirmed amounts via message: 100x $1s, 300x $5s and 100x $25s

Thanks buddy. Saw those. Price is big and my set is pretty much complete. FLV inlays are pretty cool. I don't care what others say.
Now that I take a close look at it, I kind of love the art. But the yellow background is tough

These have been on my watch list for a while, but I just cannot justify the price. Been debating on the $5s for my mixed THC set, but I rather not replace the inlays and I am not sure I want to match yellow inlays with white ones.

Maybe about $1 per chip overpriced, but they look to be in nice shape!

Super tough to replace those inlays unfortunately
You're telling me, lol. I sent some to Josh to get milled. These are super difficult to murder/remove the inlays of.

These were first listed over ten days ago.

Thanks for the heads up!

didn't see the first auction.

I think the first auction is a fair price. I've seen the 1s sell for 5 bucks each.

I reached out to the seller yesterday, seeing if they'd be willing to cut a deal on all of their chips listed. I don't think they quite understood what I was getting at...

This is exactly it. This calls for one of the quips about the designer "you had ONE job..." or how they snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. The quality of these chips is insane. Linen inlay THC. Sooo nice.

How hard is it to find FLV $1s out there? They’re not Cocaine Giraffes, but they’re pretty nice all the same.

The 1s are hard to find. I never did locate any when I was building mine. last time I saw them sold @detroitdad scrounged up a few for a reasonable price. Hes got the connects though lol. that was a while ago and thats the only time that I can remember in the last couple years.

Its next to impossible. I only have a playable set with ones because 50 x 1 was loaned to me free of charge. Then I supplemented some capital city 20's to help out.

Yep, I bought these from @colter ripton about a year ago. Awesome chips!
