    Sorry they're not for sale. I wish I can get more, but the seller only have this set. Now I just need to find the original chips to go with them.

    I didn't know there was a difference between the mass produced chips and the chips used in the movie (other than the movie chips being the higher denoms that are more commonly found in Europe iirc).

    Am I wrong?

    Shure !

    Here you go:

    JB-ones
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Close-up ($100.000)
    [​IMG]

    The non-denom ones

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]


    Price:
    JB +- $5 for 25 chips
    ND +- $8,6 for 25 chips

    Let me know if you need more/specific pictures !

    Ps. FYI, I have no commercial or any other connection with the provider of these chips...I was merely suggesting because they are dirt cheap in this Belgian webshop (Cartamundi is Belgian) and I would be glad to help you out getting these at discount.

    Pss. my 500th post !

    Yeah, I'm well aware of the remotely similar fakes out there. Wrong size and the designs aren't even close.

    I'm in Oz so I was hoping to go through dolphin but so far had no response. If not then I was looking at Matsui or Abbiati depending on cost. There are others like IndoPacific gaming but they appear to use Abbiati anyway. I'm not going to stir the group buy pot until I have finalised a close match and an accurate idea of cost. More than likely they'll reject the wording "Casino Royale" in which case the worst case scenario would be to attempt to make a few myself. However, I'm not going to do that without first knowing more details. Aka, dimensions - specifically thickness, thickness of the layers, height of the raised edges, materials - real Mother of Pearl or just Pearlescent Acrylic.

    As far as I can tell the lettering is under the layer of clear acrylic that makes the raised edges. Jojong, are you able to confirm any of that?

    Like I said, the best way to do it would be from really high resolution scanner images of the plaques. If you still have the plaques in posession but don't have a decent camera/scanner then I'de be interested in paying the cost of getting them scanned at office works or something.

    The key would be a decent side on image. You can't find that online.

    I am aware of what I'de be up against, I've been through the other threads
