    Since it's a different mold, (due to the size - 43mm) I assume that there are separate edgespot punches for the mold exclusively.

    I've personally seen edgespot # 18 and 22 on some 43mm chips, but have also seen #32 on the $5000 denom for The Casino.... and a #20 on a 43mm chip on eBay.
    What other 43mm chips with different edgespot patterns are there?
    Would the spots from the Winners Casino be on this 43mm IHC mold too?
    I feel like it's a limited group of spots...

    Jamby, chime in on the Winners' chips please.

    I have no idea how exactly the process of punching out the inserts works at GPI (just like anybody else here?), but wouldn't it be a good idea to make these punches universal so that they can operate on any chip size?

    No, I doubt they can be universal.
    think about a 39mm chip. It has a specific circumference. Therefore a certain edgespot pattern like #18 has a specific depth and spacing that would never work for a bigger chip diameter.

    I had a gut feeling that there is only a limited number of edgespots available for the 43mm IHC mold.

    based on previous chips I've seen, I thought it was limited to only the edgespots with "V's" in them; #18, 20, 22, and 26.
    But the Ritz Carlton $5000 is not one of those V edgespot patterns, so opened the question up to other chip nerds....

    I don't see how that doesn't allow using the punch for different sizes. As long as the chip is locked in on the area that is never punched (say the inner area with 7/8 diameter), wouldn't it be irrelevant how the punches look like? You could manufacture one punch for the largest chip and then use it on the smaller ones. Yes, it would punch less material out of the smaller chips, but isn't that the case with these (sorry -- I have no 43mm chips for comparison)?

    Here are a few more IH & C oversized chips with various punches. Images from Nevada Chip Pictures -- I hope it's okay to link them inline.

    Wow, that $5000 is a sick big chip!
    Gotta remember that color combination: chocolate, blaze orange and hot pink.
    I still think you need separate punches...

    got you looking for more chips though, :wink:

    Alright, here you go...

    According to the Paulson / GPI website and their chips manual [.pdf downloaded], the following inserts are available on the 43mm Paulson chips:


    None or Solid, 3, 5, 10, 13, 15, 16, 18, 20, 22, 25, 26, 27, 28, 30, 31, & 32
    [The Green ones are pictured below]

    Found these examples too, but they aren't available any longer according to Paulson / GPI:
