(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. :)

Thanks... The $25s, $100s, and $500s are my favorites. It will make a nice torney set.

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?

Nice score on the rack of 500s. Love that chip. It's the primary I believe?

One of the nicest looking chips Paulson ever made! These are top-quality chips!

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

This is like porn to me :D

Very impressive.

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. :)
