    I am wondering: why hasn't there been a run on these chips on ebay, like it has happened with the Mark Twain chips - as these are minty mint Paulsons as well?
    Please note that there are 5 different kinds of $5 chips.

    The links to my previous threads are found at the bottom of this posting.

    The pictures have been taken with a Panasonic Lumix FZ8 camera, with two different macro lenses ( x4 and x8 ).

    Everyone is invited to post his or her own collection of these chips in this thread.

    Very nice pr0n once again. Those $5s are really interesting. I especially like the wagon train and cowboy boot versions. Nice.

    I love the closeup shots of the inlay going past the inlay recess rim...

    As for the Mesquites themselves, Very nice looking chips, but maybe some people are passing on the Western themed inlay.

    I like the hundies.
    Not fond of that star though.

    Agreed. You could get them for $1.05/chip from the original seller who did not know to put Paulson in the title. Then, I guess "PlayboyChips" bought them all because he thought they were worth more than that and could flip them at a profit.

    I really wanted a set of these, and actually had a deal worked out with the OS on a 1000 chip set of 5/25/100 for $1000. I dig the western theme, and the "small star" progression vs the "large star" 25 & 100.

    Oh well.

    yeah doesnt seem that many sold and the ones he put to a bid only went for about $70.

    ahh well, the market is just full of good chips at this stage :)
