    wow they went high. It wouldn't surprise me if they will probably be relabeled . Sorry, don't like all the relabel projects going on.

    Re-label Le Cove's? Seriously? I can't imagine why anyone would EVER disfigure those beautiful chips...

    Me neither, but I've seen so many great chips get abused lately.

    I think it's more that playable sets of some of these old Paulson fantasy lines are becoming pretty much impossible to find than it is people having malicious intent toward the chips.

    Also, a $10 denomination chip is not frequently used in most of the games people play these days.

    Personally, I'd rather see nice chips being used and enjoyed than sitting around in a box in someone's closet for decades. It's not like sticking a label over an inlay is irreversibly damaging a chip.

    It sounds like you are fairly resolute in your conviction that this is some sort of travesty, so I will not try to persuade you to think any differently about it, but perhaps to offer some insight as to why someone might perform such a "heinous" act.

    I too would be sorry if they were relabeled. The blue 10's and Orange 20's just look so good as they are.

    Agree. One of the best old Paulson fantasies.
