Forget the inlays, just focus on the chip colors and edge spots. Pick your favorite chip for each denomination to make your perfect set.

St Jo primary 500
Mark Twain primary 100
Mark Twain secondary 25
St Jo primary 5
Tough one but probably Mark Twain secondary 1(love the tri-moon spots)
St Jo primary 0.50

Although I did choose my Terrible's chips mostly by what was mint or slighty used and available at the time I bought them.

edit:these are my favorite chips but I think that If I was building another set my choices would differ slightly based on spot colors and combos to avoid repeating colors/confusion.

This is a tough one because I like the St. Jo primary $5 and the St. Jo secondary $1, but their edge spots are the same layout so that won't work.

Here are my picks...

St Jo primary $500
Mark Twain primarty $100
St. Jo primary $25
St. Jo secondary $5
St. Jo secondary $1
St. Jo primary .50

I have 40 St Jo primary 5's and they are amazing in person. It's the main reason I chose them but it seems that mint primary 5's are hard to find now...

I concur... they are nice looking up close. There is a rack of them on ebay right now but they are listed at used.

I wonder how used they are.

This is exactly what I'd pick too.



Tommy: Would you ever be interested in selling me a "sample chip set" of even just one of those rows of chips. I'd love to be able to frame a complete set :).

I got those to do exactly that. Here is a pic of them now. I plan on replacing the Harley background with a custom Terrible's one similar to my current avatar.

I plan to put the $5 anniversary chips in the empty spots or maybe a custom $1k.

I believe I pick each set up for $22 shipped from the same seller on eBay a while back. You can build a set from the current eBay listings. The prices for the $100s and $500s seem a little high to me. I can donate a SU $5 St. Jo Prim to you if you decided to collect that set.

My new goal is to get all 4 sample sets like you have. I was thinking for my display when I eventually collect all the chips it would be cool to get a set of the Terrible casino cards and have a one or two of the cards in the display case with the chips too.

Yeah if you wouldn't mind I'd pay you for shipping :). I'd like to collect an entire sample set of the primary and secondaries of both St Jo and MT.

Cool. PM me your address and I'll mail it out early next week.

These auctions may interest you....(still search around though, may be able to find better prices)
