Good luck with the property! I could likely take most if not all the BTPs...

Welp, we are pulling out all the stops to make an offer on some property. Depending on how things go, I may be looking to sell my chips off. I would have time to sell them for what they are worth, i.e., this is not a fire sale.

Am hoping for some input from the community. I have not been super active lately but have the general sense that prices are high. Assume maximum flexibility in terms of shipping, splitting, etc. Some splits are obvious (BTP is likely split into 2-3 smaller sets, Palms are not splitting no matter what, etc.).

Please note this is not a dibs thread and I am not taking dibs/offers/etc via PM. If we make this purchase, I will be selling chips over time to backfill our savings and will be hanging onto the Lakeshores, Palms, and Binion's if at all possible.

All opinions are welcome, either in the thread or via PM. Feel free to weigh in on the entire lot or each set or a particular set, whatevs. Thanks! Now, on to the chips.

Note: condition is kinda off the top of my head, hopefully the pictures are good enough. I don't have the bandwidth right now to take any more.

On a serious note, given the rarity of Paris $1s nowadays — especially in that condition — I reckon you're looking at $400 a rack, so $6,000 right off the bat.
