    THIS!!!!!.....^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    That's why I rarely ever chime in on ANY of the boards anymore. It seems I don't know $#!t about marbles, even after 20 years of study and countless shows. I have had my share of BS PM's over time, .
    I don't mean to sound like a smart *****, but after a while, it just happens. The people who have actually met me, know I'm as honest and helpful as there is. I do have a nice circle down here in the Texas region.

    Peace, Willie

    Kevin, If your father had one of the best h/m and m/m collections, then you've probably got some killer marbles. Although the majority of marble collectors are honest, it's not like stamp collecting, where a book can give you an accurate value. There are collectors out there, including myself, who may try to get a marble from you for as little as possible. In my line of work they say trust no one, believe nothing and get/give plenty of oxygen. That also applies to marbles. If I had another 25+ years to do it all over again, I would keep better track of all the marbles I've owned. Start by photographing them and getting opinions from the photographs on which are the better ones. Learn their values not only by what you're offered, but also by what others are asking for similar marbles. Label them, especially the better ones, so you can easily refer to information you may not always remember. Attending a marble show is invaluable. When showing them, either at a marble show or to another collector at home, treat them like a jeweler showing his jewellery. Sort them into cases so that only one marble is removed at a time, and a missing marble will be obvious.
    Do you have any pictures to show us?
