I have no further informations. They are available in a german poker store. http://www.gamblerstore.de/index.php/cat/c2081_10-5g-Paulson-The-Authentic.html Maybe since 2-3 years. They are not very popular because of the ugly inlay design. Just good for relabeling imo.
Bad idea! Smaller inlay and another mold do not really match the Terrible's. Furthermore you will see the hotstamp trough the label! I sell 1000's of labels each month and know this issue very good! I suggest you to find a non hotstamped one! Or scrap down the hs!
Any reason why you want it purple for 1000? Typically there yellow the 1k's. I know the Terrible's 500 is orange but the Wsop uses yellow 1k's and orange 5k's so the colour progression isn't any different. You will have a way easier time finding yellow chips as the Paulson pharaoh 1k's are still available also yellow paulson roulettes pop up often on ebay in yellow or on apache there are a few hot stamps chips that could be used with better results. Just a thought but as for purple the world tophat and canes 1's are very deep blue with a purple edge spots and they are sharp.(I have 500 of them diffidently recommend them)and they could be used as 1k's as you could add 0's or just tell your group they stand for 1 thousand.
My phone is the only camera I own but I took some pics of a few barrels. They didn't come out great but I can still post them if you like.
