Arrived today (7/28/06)!
Today was my father-in-law's birthday. I hustled home from work to change before going to dinner... I found a box in the front door! I opened up the box right away (and took the first few pics), but didn't have time to look at them all right away.
That was the longest dinner + presents + cake I think I have ever sat through. I got home, cleaned up some of the manufacturing dust with a damp rag, then took some more photos.
The chips sound and feel great. The stack excellent. I did notice that some of the hot stamps are off center. I also noticed stray colors on the lighter greys and yellows... There was quite a bit of clay dust in the bottom of the shipping boxes, so I imagine there was a fair amount in the factory.
I'm just happy to get mine. The purple is an amazing color... Very, very deep and rich. I thought Tropicana yallow was going to be my favorite color, but I think I like the purple best. I don't know if its because of the rest of the set, but the greyt seems to have a hue of blue to it, so it matches nicely. I'm very, very satisfied with these chips... Can't ask for anything more at 60c per chip...
Sorry about some of the blurry photos... they looked good on the little screen on my camera!
