chips, dips, chains , whips.
Question for chibes xberts . I have a set or is it 2 sets of Caesars Tahoe NCV hot stamps. The brown chips, the olive chips, and the blue greenie chips are on the house mold. The off white, dark blue, and green chips are hat and cane. Which mold is preferred . Does anyone know what values they used them for in tourneys. These are old leaded chips. I’ll get up pics tomorrow. Anyone else have these anymore ?

Beautiful chips man, there are a few sets out there! I'd guess in general the top hat chips are the most loved.... But dang, beauties, I wish I never sold mine

Not that terminology matters, but I wouldn't even call that a mixed set. The only difference between them is the mold; the stamps and spot schemes are perfectly consistent. I say it's a set, and would be delighted to play a game using them any day. Beautiful chips, beautiful set. :)

I see a somewhat playable assortment of different chips from Caesar's Lake Tahoe. Cool chips. But calling it a "set" is a stretch for my definition of the term.

To me, a set has to be all on the same mold. It has to be playable for at least a full table, and doesn't require making change every other hand to make it work.

Looking for the official colors if any one is an exbert on chibes colors
The only one I have is forest green with colon orange, others by sight, which is not reliable, colon orange / yellow, could be moss green or dark green /orange charcoal/day blue, off white/sherbet green , indian blue/royal red

I would disagree on the different mold part. Casinos use different molds all the time. The Jack Cincy set just had two chips on thc while the rest were rhc. The PCAs are one of the most coveted casino sets out there and they have mixed molds. I’m not a big fan of the mixing molds and boy do I wish that PCA $1 was a thc but it never bothers me when they are in play.

Fair points. I guess I'm wrong. But I still don't like mixing molds. Definitely tilts me.
