slag on the 'bay

Recommended Posts

I was watching it as well, but once it popped over 250.00 I was out. That would be a rare size for sure... I was thinking the exact same thing about size.

I have something like it's twin, larger than 1-1/4" but smaller than 1-3/8" and with an equally smeared looking pattern.  Would be interesting to compare since I'd assume the real mfcs at this size should at the very least have a pretty distinct cut line.

At least there was a dial caliper in the background. :D

The lack of photos showing all sides and how the fingers can obscure possible defects or roundness would bother me.

The cut-line is interesting.

Nice... I have a buddy that has one that is 1 1/4" and it's a beauty! Ya the marble looks right, but one just never knows until you get it in hand.

I agree hiding all of the damage... The funny things was I put a 1 3/8" marble in my hand for comparison and the wife asked me what are you doing? I said comparing... and with a roll of the eyes she shock her head and walked away like I was crazy! Some people's wives.

I was watching this one too. I have a 1.25" similar to this. Probably just rounded to 1.3" on the size. Kinda pricey to me too.

I was watching it, went high 

Look at this slag I got for $9.99 a couple days ago.  This color of blue MFC is hard to find, I only have a few.

I have this one set off to the side.  Handgathered...maybe, not much to go off except some trailing.  Old...not convinced.  The pattern and the white on it have bothered me for as long as its been in the collection.  Something just says "not MFC" about it to me.  I'm used to seeing a chevron pattern or at least a long shear as a cutoff.
