I guess I 'm the first one to expose one's custom inlay to public judgement.
If you like it so be it; if you don't like it, say why:)

I’d say 10

But I can’t read it from 5ft away so...

10-5=5

Is there another side? Are these all non-denoms?

I was close to a 4, but I don't personally like ncvs, and the owl leaves no space for one.

Mostly a preference thing for me, but it's still a very nice inlay.

NCV is a deal breaker for me. I'm hoping the other side shows denoms.

I really like the look of it, but it doesn't meet my basic requirements for information on a poker chip -- i.e., denomination and location, so only eligible for a 1 vote. Sorry, but these shouldn't just be art competitions....

Edit: My vote revised in light of the added information...

Not trying to bash it, but since you're asking for opinions:
I don't like dark inlays, so you're losing a point from me there. I really hate the absence of color, so you're losing another point. The lack of a currency symbol tilts me - I don't expect a dollar sign, but why no drachma symbol, or euro, or whatever you guys use. The owl is cool, and I like the club theming, so I'll give it a 3, but it's much closer to a 2.5 in my opinion.

I made the frac AND the Top Value chip to be NCV, out of currency insecurity in an unstable world.
The 1, 5 and 20 are denominated.

I suggest posting pics of the ones with the denoms instead then. It's the difference between me voting these as a 1 or a 5 lol. I love the design, but no denom is a complete deal breaker for me.

Assuming the denom version... I like the clean design of the inlay, like the olives, not sure about what's going on where the owl's legs are, like the font for the denom, would perhaps preferred the denom in another color. I would definitely have preferred a small inlay (that is, without the extra black area around).

I obviously adore it :LOL: :laugh: but:
-I should have denominated the Top Value chip as 100 (I would have always kept the frac an ND one, though)
-I should have the denominations on one side and the ΑΘΕ inscription on the other, on each chip.
-Inlay size should have been 1in, not 1&1/16
Plus, some humility in the mix, so a 4 from me:D

Edit: Needless to say I would give it a 5 if it were not mine; don't be afraid to do so :D

That's something I noticed but didn't mention. I'm not opposed to the larger inlay on that mold, if the art benefits from it. But I'm not sure you needed it.
Either way, cool set.

The NCV is deal breaker for me.
But I like the design a lot.
So 3 for me.

I like it, black labels are hit or miss imo, but this works. I think it's the lack of other colors, it will go with any chip color.

Love the black inlay, I am always drawn to dark inlays/labels.
Also not a fan of NCV, but the denominated chips make a difference to my vote vs if they were all NCV
I am also a fan of some sort of color match, but this these is not about that.
Clean, classy, i'll give it a 4, rounding up from my 3.75 vote.
:D
