    What does the EPT use? Looks and sounds like ceramics to me.

    A rack of Paulson's $5 Empress chips are set to expire in Ebay Wednesday. The guy is in PEI so no border fees. I know nothing about this sale though so can't vouch for him.

    Those are primaries, and worn. Note the rounded edges . . . nice enough chip, but I would not pay more than the $35.00 currently listed, maybe $40.00 if they help add to a set you already have.

    I would think this is a decent deal for a brand new cash set of Tophat and Canes... but I'm no expert. Paulsons no longer makes home sets so they should keep thier value.

    Has he done any work for you? What are your favorite works by him?

    I contacted him and he is quite busy at the moment but that works for me as I really am in no rush

    He also designed the Pharoah's chips linked above.

    Unfortunately hotstamping died out and I never got these made. I may resurrect them as custom labels at a future time.

    If I remember correctly, he designed the Ching Hill chips for AJ years ago, as well as the Pharoah's moose mentioned. Nothing for me . . . my obsession was more for cards. But there are a few people over on Poker Chip Forum with his designs on their sets and they are just beautiful.
