I have been collecting these beauties for years, and finally scored my second rack! -- even though the first rack was completed only two weeks ago, pieced together with either singles or a few chips at a time (largest lot was 20 chips). I was stunned when I saw these show up on eBay last week, and from a reputable seller to boot (big plus).
I thought I had the auction sniped for ~$100 less than the final amount until another bid popped in around 3 seconds to go, but I was willing to go much higher than the final bid amount. My max bid was stratospheric; no way I was letting these get past me. Overall, the final bid is about what the rest of the chips I've collected have cost, too.
This pickup not only completes my $1 quest, but pretty much finishes my old-school mixed-casino cash set (all with hub shaped inlays, my favs). It's gonna be one pretty set, and pr0n will finally be posted once I figure out how to use that stupid @#$% digital camera at work....
I've been patiently waiting to finish the set before I even announced that I was building it. Only a couple of folks here even know what chips are in it, so I planned to run some type of contest to guess the contents - I figured it would probably be for my 5000th post. Looks like it may need to be a bit earlier.
