Marbles from a settlement

Recommended Posts

Hi 

I have a friend who recieved several marbles of different sizes from a divorce settlement that I'm trying to id and find out if any have value. Any help would be appreciated. The marbles pictured here are all larger marbles. I will upload others later.

Hi. Welcome.

Since these are handmades, which I'm still fuzzy about, I'm going to move the thread to the main chat section because I think more people might see it there.

These are not old German Marbles, I consider them Older contemporaries. 

 

Agree.

Lol , a settlement which includes marbles, at least he/she didn't give up the good stuff. There is zero value in these marbles. I don't think you could get 20 bucks for the group on eBay.

Actually while these marbles are basically worthless I think as a group they would bring more than 20.00 on eBay. The red, white and blue one is very eye catching. 

That with the fact that a fool and his money are soon parted means there will be bidders

Wow, guess I have to break out my early 1980s contemporaries. I had them stored away and it looks like the market finally caught up to them.

And the blue one up there bears the telltale marks of being hit with a countersink tool. I forget who was doing that back in the 80s and early 90s to make them look old, someone in Virginia or Tennessee I think. Kentucky maybe.

definitely contemporary. look like unsigned Gibson marbles from the 80s. actually these type Gibson marbles sold for bigger money back in the day. Brownie {Robert Brown} used to sell them allover ohio and west Virginia. they made way to collections as Vintage marbles. maybe the first reproduction antique marbles? some of the oldtimers know the complete story.......just a piece of history fyi
