  1. My kind of forum!

    Nice! A deal show-off forum. That's what I'm talkin' 'bout. I agree with what Pete said earlier, the deals are still out there, ya just gotta get out and look. Here are my two favorite deals at the present time. An Akro box that I paid $150 for and an M1905 bayonet that I got for $50(alright,...

  4. Box of CAC Pastel Opaques

    OK, I'll start off this forum. Nothing like a success story to keep us motivated, right? In 1998, not too long after I started collecting, I saw a post on a forum hosted by Bob Block (author of numereous marble books). It was posted by a man in California who said that he had found a box of...

  5. My best Score

    I found a tin of Akro marbles (cookie container) in a antique mall. They were all lines and all were 3/4" and up to 1". There were if I remember right about 75 or so marbles in there. All were... dare I say.. Mint or I'll just say as nice as the day they were made. I got the whole batch for the...

  6. Wish I still had this one...

    Hello everyone. I got this at a yard sale years ago and I'm proud to say it was a real sleeper. I sold it locally a couple of years back for a very tidy profit and then some. This emerald green sulfide is sporting a cottontail. It is in original condition. It is a wopping 2 3/8 with original...

  9. Happy Days.

    Most of my killer finds happened years ago. Although I did have a walk-in at my room in seattle last year that had my favorite CAC and others that I now own. If I remember correctly it was the large ones in this pic. Traded some handmade for them that I had gotten areal deal on. They cost me...

  10. Starting over...

    Hey everybody...I've been collecting marbles for a little over a year now. I run a landscaping co. so I would hit auctions to find items to sell on ebay for extra cash during my down time (No snow to plow) during the winter. I found some mibs in a box lot & once I started researching, I couldn't...

  11. This is my best find in my short time collecting....

    This would have to be the best find that I have had to date. The Peltier Kayo comic marble that I found in a jar of old marbles in an antique store. I found numerous others that with a little TLC came out looking quite nice. The Kayo though was by far the coolest, and best of all. I only paid 20...

  12. This weekend's score...

    From a small jar tucked in the back of a display case, had dust all over it. Paid $13. The red slag (the only slag) has 2 small fleabites. The Pelt rainbos had typical pinholes... The large blue Vitro in the upper right has a metallic-type sheen on part of the blue, almost magnet colored. ...

  14. Am excavating these in Trona,Ca

    Oops. Don't know how to post pics here. I believ the marbles date from the 1920s/30s because I've been excavating an old garbage dump from that era for four years nows. I've excavated a few other marbles at a site in the heart of Trona dating to the 1890s. These are crude marbles,not made from...
