    HI Guys,

    I'm always interested in the proper color names on each chip and it seems the Chip guides never use the proper titles. They tend to use blue for all shades, etc... I've never been able to drop a chunk of change on a real color sample set. I thought with all my chips at home, I could get examples of each color for reference. Rimmerryan has posted scans in the chip gallery, which is very helpful, but still can be difficult with certain colors. A color looks much different on screen vs. in person. Also, I wonder how much color variation there is with Paulson ?
    I think I found examples of most colors and I thought it would be nice to share with the group. What this Wiki could become is the poor person's color sample set. People can contribute to build the database, using chips that they have at home. The people that have real sample sets can verify color matches when possible.

    The link to Rimmerryan's paulson scans Poker Chips-ChipTalk.net - rimmerryan's Album: Paulson & Other Mfg -- Color Samples

    I would suggest you try and use only new/unc. chips to match colors, as used chip colors tend to become darker through use. Solids are the preference over insert colors, but all are welcome. Also, give identifying info about the chip, as there can be many releases. Not sure how to format this, but changes are welcome. Some of these I know are accurate, but some need verification. I think we should put a big Black V before the title of the chip, meaning verified by paulson sample set or other known means.

    I've seen 78 colors, but there might be more !!!

    That's a good idea! I'll try to contribute to this since I have a complete Paulson color sample set. I think scans of the chip would be helpful too, after all

    I was thinking about scans of each chip, but that might take up too much space, have to be smallish. Keep the ideas coming.

    Fun Nite added.

    I pretty sure they are the right colors, but someone might want to verify.

    Was the intention that we unwashed heathan could edit the OP?

    Is it just me, or does light blue almost seem the same as the dark blue?

    I added a handful that I'm pretty certain about.

    Additionally...
    These are all the same yellow:
    • Paulson Le Noir 1000 base
    • Casino Aztar $100 primary edgespot
    • Grand Casino Gulfport $1 edgespot

    These are the same blue:
    • Outpost San Ramon $20 edgespot
    • Casino Aztar $100 primary edgespot

    Pretty sure the Paulson Le Noir 25 is Munzell Green ?
    Pretty sure the Horseshoe $1 top hat & cane is Tan?

    still hoping to add to this. I was looking at my new PCA roulettes. Does anyone have the very dark blue one. I'm wondering if it could be navy ?? Not sure when they stopped using navy??

    Also wondering about color variation as years go by. I know colors get darker on the chip as they are used, but what about colors on new chips made in different years ??

    Aztar secondary edge spot does not seem to be light pink. It does not match my Tri-State roulette at all.

    Yah, I had a rack of some no name casino paulson chips that didnt work
    for labeling project. I ended up giving them away later realizing they were
    the end of production royal blue and was not happy. I could have sold them
    as Royal Blue color samples and probably made 5$ each on them. Oh how I
    manage to pooch things up so well.
