    I found....something

    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......

    clearing out a drawer today, i found this in a pile of twist ties and sewing articles....

    No idea what it is.....

    I am guessing Marble King, but wait for a vet to respond before you sock it away in an MK drawer.

    Actually, the pattern is sorta "eye-catching"...so its going in a display with a misc. assortment of odd looking marbles. Mixture of new/old/weird case.

Cleaned it up and tis a pee wee blue mica! Not big $; just fun stuff to find that someone just by passed.

    Hmm. A fellow fisherman. Haven't fished in so long..I remember once, in my younger years, I was wandering near a local lake, near slate. Just set the pole down and thot; whatever. Well..."whatever" took my pole rite into the lake and I caught the pole and fish in time. Let it go of course...only fair.

    I dunno; don't think you r rude? I think I am tri polar so let's see the results. The only bullhead I caught wouldn't die. It was frankly AWFUL. Blood all over the kitchen walls and they still just flopped around in the sink. If you see bobber colors in a mib well, do show and tell!

    i know the pictures are pretty bad, but i didn't want to untapped the whole case for a pic... anyway...a few of the "bobbers" (which i think are Vitro. and since thinking is dangerous, I'm going to go out on a limb and feebly say All-Reds?)

    I knew you were going to post those.

    We just had a debate about All-Reds and Yellow Jackets. All-Reds have red on one end and another color on the other. Yellow Jackets can have red on one end and yellow on the other, so they would fit in that category too. Some say Yellow Jackets have to have a colored ribbon around the middle, but someone else showed an ad that showed the white middle. You decide.

    Isn't it funny how sometimes I pretend I actually know something?

    Re: I found....something

    if its in the "all-red" field with no red on it (such as green and brown with a white stripe) is it still an "all-red"? - these are the questions that keep me awake until 3am....

    If Vitro, sounds like a Tiger Eye (Type 3 I think). Could be a Marble King (Rainbow?). Keep in mind that I am new to this and am only answering because I have had "some" experience. Wait for someone who knows for sure, but feel free to look at the Tiger Eyes to see if that's what you have.
