    I was thinking prices, there are better pics now, 1's , 5's, and some 25's are very used, some 25's look good and 100 - 1000 looks good

    1 x 100 10 dollars a chip $1000
    5 x 305 2 dollars 610
    25 x 205 3 dollars 615
    100 x 110 6 dollars 660
    500 x 20 7 dollars 140
    1000 x 20 25 dollars (not sure about the best price on these BERG what say you ?? 500

    760 chips $3525 with 25 dollar 1000's

    as always I would love the rack of dollars, maybe 100 x 20, and 500 x 8, but my first and main interest is the dollars. thanks

    $500s are closer to $10-12 slightly used.

    $1000s are typically sharp edges (very few saw play) and if so they are $50-60 per. Spinetti's has them at $60 but good luck buying more than 2-3 chips.

    $1s are closer to $15-17 (Spinetti's has them at $15 and they don't have a rack to sell last time I checked).

    I'd range this as:

    1 x 100 15 dollars a chip = $1500
    5 x 305 2 dollars = $610
    25 x 205 3 dollars = $615
    100 x 110 6 dollars = $660
    500 x 20 10 dollars = $200
    1000 x 20 60 dollars = $1200

    Total = $4785 (and you can make a legitimate argument that 20 39mm $1000s haven't been on Ebay for a long time, so $65-70 could be justified).

    Spinettis starts their auction for 500's at 7.77, I think 7 is a good price

    and the dollars in this condition never get up to 15, they start at 10 for singles. I realize a full rack is a rarity, but I don't see a rack going for 1500 in that condition.

    I don't have a good knowledge on the 1000's. I did just score two on ebay for 73, but that came with 10 other assorted chips, (it was a steal :)

    I may not have the bank to finish the higher bid. I was thinking who ever can do it should get the cards, dealer button case, dice , etc, as a bonus. gotta go to work

    Holy Mother of Dunes chips - good luck you guys! Wish I could have bought it outright - I think the buyout was just under five thousand? That would be the cash game set evar.

    way to man up ovo, glad you clicked it and not me, that starting price was way too tempting since it was close to my comfort zone for an opportunity on a great set...good luck to you,:cool:

    I may be interested in some $100s (maybe even some $25), depending on the ending price.

    Or I should say -- depending on what prices you make them available at, Ovo!! Maybe you'll want to keep them together, once they're in your hands!

    I bet he pulls the auction before it ends. He's had trouble letting go of these chips

    I may be interested in a couple racks of 5s.

    Mike

    edited to add: also possibly a rack of 25s. Same condition as the 5s.

    I hope he sticks with the auction and you do win it....it would be great to see the CT Dunes lovers get these chips so we can all enjoy some beautiful Dunes photo albums. Good luck!
