All prices are understood plus shipping.
I don't exactly remember what I paid for these buttons and (super rare) cards; just make me an offer:

Am I reading this right....you want 18 PER CHIP for the $1000 chips?

If so then you value the lot at $5540 or 4986 (or $2.92/2.62 per chip)...

I must be missing something...


(oh...and what does the SEC mean?   Not 'seconds' I hope)

I'm guessing you're missing a lot, but it's good that you ask.

SEC means they are secondaries (not seconds). Casinos must have two chipsets: A primary set that is in circulation on the floor, and a secondary set in case the primary set becomes compromised. The secondary set just has different colors/edgespots from the primary.

The $1,000 chips generally sell for $20-$30 each, so 18 is a reasonable price for them.

I'll play you in any game you name for any amount you can count.

Thanks for the explanation about secondaries...Didn't know that.

But I'm willing to carry on asking...'cos I still don't get it.

WHY are these chips worth so much when I see the revered Paulson chips advertised ar $1 per chip.

I'll take a guess...is it because they are genuine ex-casino chips?

If not, then what is the reason?

IIRC, the President Casino New York never opened.  These chips were created for the casino, but then sold off.  So they are genuine casino and because they never saw play, they are (were) mint.

This is not a mass-produced set, and there are not more chips being produced to add to your set.  Chips only become available when someone sells what they own.

So the price premium (and what a premium! ::))  is purely because they are one-offs, unique, never to be made again - effectively a cancelled casino order?

They are the same quality etc. as other chips...just one set of a limited run?

They are casino Paulsons, which in my mind, are superior to consumer grade Paulsons.  And their availability is severely restricted compared to a mass-produced consumer line of Paulsons.

Supply and demand drives the market.  Supply is low, demand is high (among discerning chip collectors).

And it's not just the fact that they are difficult to come by. The set has a great theme. The inlays are beautifully designed, and color matched to the chipcolor, even though they are photographic images.

And the edgespots have been very well chosen. They almost seem delicate.

In my humble opinion this is the most beautiful set out there. A lot of time and effort has been put into designing these, and it shows.

Here are the production numbers (as far as I can figure them):

30,000x $1
5,000x $2.50
35,000x $5
5,000x $20
25,000x $25 primary
25,000x $25 secondary
12,500x $100 primary
12,500x $100 secondary
5,000x $500 primary
5,000x $500 secondary
2,000x $1,000 primary
2,000x $1,000 secondary

All of these chips are in the hands of collectors now, and when they're sold, they're selling their entire collections at once.
According to my calculations I own 1.86% of all the chips made.
