    Transitional marbles, defects, errors. Collectors value, monetary value.

    What is the collectors and monetary value for transitional or factory defected marbles. Are these highly sought after? If so are there some defects that are more sought after or valued higher? Are transitional marbles basically a marble with a production flaw?

    A transitional marble is a handgathered marble. The name is used for early German handmade(not cane cut) and American melted pontil. It is also used for handgathered machine rounded(true transitionals IMO)marbles, Japanese, German, "Canadian" types etc For some reason if there is no rough cut off on the marbles they are just called handgathered slags. The twisted up machine made marbles are not transitionals, They Just look handgathered.
