Stealing @AfterTheFact idea


Post your "one of a kind" BARREL. Must be a real casino not customs. You can post more than a barrel but less than a rack. Land, water and non US are welcome!

Only full BARRELS (20 chips), no partials. I bet that there are really not that many truly one of a kinds out there.. Prove me wrong!

I have exactly 20 of these chips that came with some other solid THC mold roulette hotstamp chips in similar condition. These 20 have a hotstamp of a crown on both sides, that I have never seen before on any other Paulson chip. I have no idea of the history or where they came from. I'd be glad to be proven wrong, but as far as i know right now, these are a one of a kind barrel. ;)

Ah, yes! Do you know where they came from?

Not really. I bought it as part of a mixed lot. But the simplest story (from who I bought it from) was that these were purchased for a home game of blackjack afficionados. Which is weird because there wasn't a denominated chip in the bunch. All solids, some with generic roulette inlays, even some diamond molds. Some hot stamps had the crown you see, some had a sailboat, some had anchors, others had a tropical beach scene.

Probably doesn't count. But I do have a barrel of Spearmint Rhinos in the middle bottom. But it's still a lot of barrels.
Bottom right I can see some space in those racks! Disqualified!! Lol kidding that is an awesome collection! Do you play them where everyone picks their own barrels or just collecting?

@AWenger ,

These chips might be from the Western Room. The crown stamp looks really similar. You may have an undiscovered mold variant. Roulette chips possibly?

Stellar investigative work!... it's a spitting image of the same stamp, if not the exact same one used The depth of the stamp varies, but are generally deeper in gray the hat & cane chips, (and thus the lineweight is thicker)

(Maybe disqualifies my barrel from this thread if not from a real casino as asked in the OP, but who knows for sure?)

Use them for limit. Still have some work to do, but I have enough to at least use.

Not super rare but I love green $1 chips, being day green definitely makes it better! I am sure there is probably a rack or more out there somewhere but I haven't seen them!
