Boat chips and leaded shaped inlay thc are kinda two different categories of chips. Both are cool in their own way.

Boat chips are colorful with amazing spots, but plain inlay and no history. They are expensive because there simply are no other chips around that have those crazy colors and spots. I mean, where else are you finding 8v blue base with arc yellow and sherbet green spots?

Older leaded chips have that great leaded heavy feel, with those jummy textured and shaped inlays. However more often than not the colors and spots are more subtle. Like the Empress $5 pictured above. Nice looking chips obviously, but more old school and not super bright like many of the boat chips.

I think people just value them differently based on what they like.

I do agree with you that some of these are probably priced incorrectly though.

Agree with this. That's what I was getting at with "arbitrary." Definition: "based on random choice or personal whim, rather than any reason or system."
