The ULTIMATE Home Game Set!

These chips are brand new and mint uncirculated condition. They were made by Paulson for the "President Casino New Yorker" which never opened in New York City . Paulson chips are played the world over, including some of the finest casinos in Las Vegas & Atlantic City .

Chips are manufactured on the famous Top Hat & Cane mold and contain all the anti-counterfeiting measures Paulson / GPI uses in the manufacturing process for all the major casinos. These measures contain ultraviolet markings, alpha dot (which with a 30x magnifier reads nine lines of the Paulson name), and metal fleck. See pics for details.

Paulson chips are made of up to 13 different components. They are thermo-compressed and are commonly referred to as "clay chips." Paulson chips are custom molded with personalized inlays.

All inlays are oversized and extremely detailed. The $500 chips feature the Brooklyn Bridge and the World Trade Center (two main towers before 9/11). The $100 chips feature the New York Stock Exchange building. The $25 chips feature the Statue of Liberty .

These chips are very rare and becoming extremely difficult to find, especially in quantity. The $500 denomination chips are particularly difficult to find as only 5,000 total $500 primary chips were ever manufactured.

Please bid with confidence. I have 100% positive feedback and guarantee that you will be satisfied with these chips! They are the best chips available today..... Shipping is buyers preference.

Some background info on the President New Yorker Casino:

The President New Yorker Casino was a cruise ship style casino operation. The ship dubbed "THE CRUISE TO NOW" was to run its maiden voyage on Christmas 1996 but due to political infighting, racketeering & corruption charges & finally a lack of public interest & disgust, the whole thing was scrapped. But the chips were already made. They ended up in a storage vault in the Bronx until March 2006 when they suddenly surfaced. It is believed that the son of the legendary chip Paulson/Endy family had them. Slowly the chips were sold off & now are super rare. Also these have become the hottest poker chip on eBay if you can find them! Do your homework you'll see what I mean. The chip's are made in the famous hat & cane mold of the 1940's. The benchmark by which all other chips are now made! This mold was used by 80% of all casinos in Vegas & Atlantic City & worldwide at one time. They are 39mm, casino weight & heat pressed and are true casino chips. All the inlays are oversized & cover half the hat & cane mold. These have all the security feature's of Paulson chip's including ultraviolet hat & cane, the alphadot which reads the Paulson name nine time's (can only be seen with a 30X magnifier) & the micro silver fleck's mixed in at the time of compression.

I've received several inquiries about the chip racks and chip case shown in the auction pictures. The chip racks (the five clear plastic Paulson racks holding the chips) are included in the auction and will be shipped (w/ the chips) to the winning bidder. The dark wood chip case is not included in the auction. That case houses my personal chips and is not for sale. Thanks for your interest.
