Size is as-packaged, or the diameter of loose marbles. ("D" is the diameter of round items other than marbles.)
The Golden Rule (Do unto others as you would have them do unto you) is printed around the "equator" of this marble reminiscent of the Golden Rule marbles produced years ago by Samsonite corporation. Samsonite's marbles were made famous through the practice of handing them out, which was done by quite a few people and organizations through the years beginning with Jesse Shwayder, founder of the Shwayder Trunk Mfg. Co. (later to become Samsonite) and the originator of the Golden Rule Marble, who gave them to company employees and visitors to the plant. He soon began handing them out wherever he went. Through the years they have been distributed by many people and organizations including the Boy Scouts of America, The Methodist Men, Mary Kay, the London police and the legendary Woodrow Wilson "Foots" Clements - the man behind Dr. Pepper soda.
Samsonite last distributed them in the late 1990's and after about 10 years of persistent requests they began referring requests to the landofmarbles.com. Since then, we have distributed tens of thousands of Golden Rule marbles to hundreds of individuals and organizations nationwide.
I am very disapointed that you have changed the font. I have been ordering from you for some time. The current print is not nearly as classy as the print you were using. Why did you change it? [LOM COMMENT: We did not discontinue uppercase, we only added lowercase - both are available!]
