I don't understand where you are coming from. There are hundreds and hundreds of us that are willing to trade face value for face value. I've made more than 1,000 trades since starting in this hobby 4 years or so ago.
I am not however willing to go to a casino, buy chips then sell them to others at face. Who would be? They would quickly be broke and unhappy. If someone isn't willing or able to collect chips and store them so that they can have a trading inventory, why should they expect someone else to do it and then sell the chips for face value?
Now I agree that there are some people in this hobby that are awful full of themselves and charge way too much for chips. My solution to that is to just not buy from them.
