I was just unpacking some marbles I bought on eBay and much to my delight, a green dyed hand-cut bull's-eye agate fell into my lap as I poured out a bag! (see attached).
Here is the lot on eBay:
Perhaps the best deal I've ever seen! That's an average of $6.25 per marble, while normally you'd be lucky to find one of those selling for twice...
I hope I'm correct on this one.
It's a step up for me in my MIB collection.
Baby step of course.
I went to an estate sale, and this is the only marble related thing I found. It's pretty cool, though. The label says it's from Wolverine and that they have/had a plant in Arkansas. Now, I have to wonder about all of those cool Wolverine tin stoves. They may be local too.
This pic is not mine. I...
I bought some small stuff, and I got a cool Vitro (and a clay) marble in the lot. It's orange, purple, yellow, light blue, and white. It looks to be in perfect shape.
I also got a bunch of other cool stuff, which I included in the pic...just because. Notice the tiny metal mice on the right. They...
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...
These were 3 different purchases on E-bay. The 2 smaller ones are 15/16" and 7/8". The listing was titled "3 Old Glass Marbles". My jaw dropped when I first saw that shrunken core mica blizzard. I paid under $75.00 for all. That was the only photo for the listing. The blue Onionskin has mica, it...
i won these on E-bay about a month ago, along with 10 Benningtons. I had to pay about $40.00 for the lot. The larger brick is .90", the lighter one on the left is a little damaged. The listing photos weren't the greatest, I think I got pretty lucky. I found a photo from the original listing. ...
Was Lucky to get these yesterday in the mail
I don't usually buy newer marbles (on purpose), but I have decided I need to buy some to compare to, plus new marbles eventually become old ones, right? I just found a 70% off sale and bought several bags for 90 cents each. Score!
I think these are all Vacor/Mega. They were made in Mexico at...
this may not qualify as a "score".... but....its one of the neatest I've seen that i didn't have to pay for.
One of my jobs is working for property management. I clean out apartments after someone moves out, let the rebuild team put new stuff in, then clean up their mess so it can be shown.........
An Indian---Mica with fat core---Hand-ground faceted agate.
I just got a nice lot with several old German handmades (no pics of them yet), and these were in with them. The big one is signed, but I cannot read the signature (Orr, Oar?). The sphere has a bad spot that must have been there when they made it.
The lot also had a bag of Red Devils. I can't...
Very new to collecting marbles! Can one help me with this find?
I don't normally buy mason jars full of marbles, but since I haven't been able to hit the Powerball I figured what the heck, here are a few out of the load that I thought were cool, thanks for looking
