(not pictured - they on their way!)
4 barrels of $500
2 $100 chips (yes just 2 chips - I need 18 more!)
1 rack + 40 of $25 (I only need 60 more, but I am cherry picking the mint ones for my set)
1 rack of $5
2 racks of $1
2 racks of .50

$500s - all new/uncirculated
$100s - all SU / Mint
$25s - all SU / Mint
$5s - all new/uncirculated
$1s - all new/uncirculated
$0.50 - all new/uncirculated

If and when I find my 18 $100 chips, my final chip count will be:

300 x .50
300 x $1
300 x $5
300 x $25
300 x $100
200 x $500

1700 chips

Do i need this many? Hell no! But I can't help myself. :)

Just got the rest of my $500's today! I need 18 more $100's (17 more if I break up the one of the display sets that I plan to put in my man cave poker area. But I will keep the set together.)

Some more pics....

Primaries and Secondaries from Mark Twain and St. Jo. I plan to get a 24 chip holder, frame it, and make it a wall hanger. ;)






Oh man, I want some new chips now. How much did all this cost? :p
They varied per denom. The .50, $1, and $5 were about .60 a chip. (all new chips) The other's a little more. Worth every penny to me to have a complete set for a decent overall cost.

Very cool. Where'd you pick them up?

Brilliant news there, Tommy old lad!
Can we get another appetizing picture of the whole set so far?

You are close. Chip porn=pron. Think it came from a simple mistype of porn and somehow stuck. When you want more pics, ask for more pron!

Tommy, can we have some splashed pot pron please? :cool:
I was planning to do just that soon. Will do that on the new poker table when it arrives. :) Been keeping the chips on my work bench which surprisingly is not dusty from the construction/remodel that is going on.

Nice! Glad to see you finished it off.
Thanks! ;)

Man those $500's look so much like the Secondary PCA chips (from the side...yeah, I miss those) -- beautiful chips.

That is a nice set, especially the price! I just got back into looking for paulsons and missed the big sale... now I can only find em on ebay for a buck a piece for used ones.

Nice set OP! I must admit, I don't know a terrible lot about old Vegas chips, but these look superb! Great vibrant colors and that logo is pretty bada$$!
I've seen them around a lot on other forums as well, are they popular among collectors?

I think you may be seeing them around alot because they are one of the newer Paulson casino chips to be released to the public. Before that I believe it was the Grand Victoria casino chips.

Plus the hundos and five hundos look great :)

I'm packing away my chips for about 2 months while I re-model the basement. I needed to see my Terrible's once last time. LOL ;)

Make it an even 3000!!
LOL - I'm running out of chip storage! I'd like to get a rolling chip cart or something. Maybe a Craftsmen tool chest since it would be able to handle the weight.

I took a pic of my Terrible's dealer button and other related items. :)
