  2. Question $3.70/lb score or no score?

    I picked up 54 lbs of marbles today. The night before I was told they were handmades so on my way to get them I had visions of shiny bowling-ball sized onionskins and original boxes of colored sulphides. I basically did not sleep. Of course when I got there today I awoke to a lot of clearies,...

  4. 1 of 4 Drawers - Score or No?

    Hi all. Just got a little box full of goodies. :icon_wow: Here is a picture of drawer 1 of 4. I don't know enough about them yet to be certain this was a score. But I do know it wasn't a loss! Thanks for looking!

  5. 1-3/8" Hand-cut Agate

    Saw an ad on Craigslist about a local antique dealer who put out his marble collection at a nearby mall. Lots of small Germans, and then this one. There was another 3/4" handcut but it was so badly cut I passed. This has a few hits and a subsurface frature.

  8. 2 1/8" Handmade German

    This one I won back in January. The seller had it listed "As Is" thinking it was damaged. It's just deeply lobed and in awesome condition. Only 2 little bubble bursts. With the really nice left hand twist. The center has a nicely formed yellow and blue solid core, I don't know if this is common or...

  9. 2 free handmades

    While at my first marble convention, I walked by a taped off area in a patch of land full of trees and leaves. After asking about it, the lady standing next to it told me that marbles were scattered around inside as a scavenger hunt for the kids. She said that I could go in and take a few marbles...

  10. 2 more from a jar

    Alright, I'm calling the first one oxblood and therefore Akro, but anyone is encouraged to give their opinion. You can almost see how it starts to get opaque on the edge in the second pic. The white one is handgathered. I fooled with the exposure a little, I hope it shows up. I have no idea how...

  14. A 10 Dollar Keeper!

    Got this in an Ebay lot that cost a total of $10.00!! There were also 2 nice Moss Agate Claudia patches with the mossy deep blue base and orange patch! The Sparkler measures 11/16 and is in Nr-Mt with only a couple tiny blemishes. The last picture shows the new one with the peewee sparkler I got...
