I'm in the hunt for some Purple Paulsons to re-label as $1000s for my Terrible's St. Jo set. Any recommendations? :)

Hard to find imo... Most of the purple-ish Paulson i know are on the THC mold. I would go with some of these:

It's not the RHC mold but probably the best way to match the size of inlay and label!

Is that inlay pressed into the chip? Or is that a blank with a custom label?

Would older Paulson casino roulette solids work? They seem to accept labels fairly well. And there are a few out there in the different forums & websites. Jeff

I don't know how they will accept labels. Wish I could get them blank.

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!

I figured the hotstamp would interfere. The color and edge spots would have been perfect though. I am looking to do just one rack, are you able to make the Terrible's labels?

Is there any way I could learn about the values of different chip sets, and how I could figure them out?

Where do you get custom ones? I've heard some friends used Print Globe, but I'm not sure if they have exactly what I want. I'd prefer a smaller company where I could develop a one-on-one relationship with.

Hey Tommy, there's 50 Paulson Pharaoh NCVs up on ebay right now. I think you can still find a few of the NCVs for sale at Spinetti's or JT Casino Games but it's been awhile since I've looked.

There a couple of good ones that come to mind but I'm not sure how easy it would be to track them down.
The Argosy in Indiana

These were hot stamped but I am pretty sure there were some fantasy chips out there with that same spot pattern.
I also like the Grand Vic secondary $500

I'm not sure how easy to find or cheap they would be but the search is half the fun

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.

I was going to use a yellow chip until I saw that MO Gaming Commission designates purple to be the $1k chip. :(

To try and keep the set authentic as possible, I decided to go with purple.

Thats so odd I have never seen a purple 1k well best of luck

Though if you can get someone to make you a new label which could be done for sure maybe go with the national purple it would match the best beside the st joe 500 (same pips)

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.
Yea still post them because I would sure like to see them. Don't worry about the resolution because I'm sure we can still make out the picture. Can't wait for your post!!

The older Paulson Home Game chips would do well and come up cheaply from time to time...


The same base chip is also used on the Viva Las Vegas chips, and others. Check out all the chips with the (HP) designation at www.ccgtcc.com/fantasy/fakes_body.html

There are tons of pictures for you to look at and get leads of what might be available or at least give you some key words to search for when searching eBay.
