Selling my spare cash set… used twice, mint/new condition.

Great set for someone looking for an upgrade from “dice” or “Bicycle” chips without spending a fortune.

Roman Times 9.5g nexgen-style injection molded with no slug insert

Nice weight and feel, uniform thickness, and stack well

My players love them, but I just have too many chips so turning these loose

575 total chips… I use this set for a 25¢/25¢ cash game but it can also work for others.
*racks not included

25¢ (brown) x 200
$1 (white) x 275
$5 (red) x 75
$25 (green) x 25
Total bank of $1,325 (50+ $25 buy ins, or 25+ $50 buy ins)

$90 shipped CONUS via USPS Priority Mail Medium Flat Rate Box… a few $ more if paid as PayPal Goods & Services to cover fees.

Works out to only 15¢ per chip INCLUDING SHIPPING.
… that’s over 20% less than if purchased new

Discount Poker Shop carries these chips… here’s a link directly to the Roman Times page:

Roman Times - Discount Poker Shop

They ship via UPS and cost depends on weight so it varies by number of chips ordered.

I feel these chips don’t get enough respect as a really nice mid-level chip… the weight is comparable to what an actual casino chip weighs (not nearly as heavy as slugged chips), they stack well, and sound solid (not “plasticky”).

Thanks for pointing that out @Santa123. These are a “Nexgen”-type chip… which I would still consider a “clay” chip (just the “next generation” of one). All “clay” chips since the 1930s are a mix of clay and some sort of resin or synthetic binder, as are these.

So these ARE breakable… you can snap one in half pretty easily with your hands if you tried… but they don’t crack or break if you drop one on the floor.

And there’s a bit of a spectrum on chips as far as what’s considered clay vs plastic anyway, and that includes the composition and quality of the components.

But these are NOT plastic (aka “ABS plastic”) like slugged dice chips or Bicycle chips.

Like I said, these are a very nice mid-level chip that is way above the plastic chips out there.

Hope this helps clarify things.

Injection-molded plastic with no metal insert, similar in composition (and sound, feel, weight) to several other inexpensive entry-level chips (Nexgen Pro, Dunes commemoratives, Desert Palms, etc.).

Decent price for a very playable breakdown, and these types of chips typically do not show wear (so buying used at a steep discount is a smart play). GLWS

There's no governing standards body that can determine what "a clay chip" means, but the common usage on PCF is "a chip made using materials and processes similar to the types of chips that have been used in casinos and cardrooms for the last hundred years or so". That generally means compression molding, rather than injection molding (so that the central design is an inlay pressed into the chip's surface rather than a decal adhered to the chip's surface, which is a security feature) and a material that's some kind of plastic mix with a significant amount of clay minerals (but this is all speculation since we have very limited information about the actual materials used in casino chips).

The Roman Times and Nexgen Pro chips would not be considered "clay" by most people here. They're not similar to the clay chips you can find at casinos.

They're still quite nice chips, though, and an excellent value if you like the graphic design.
