  1. Yesterday
  2. No snakes in this thread grrrrrrrrr! I do see some pretty hard to find Akro Spirals though. Red is near the top of the hard to find list of standard colors so I would put transparent ones above that. It's neat the way they look like nothing special until you look at them at the right angle.
  3. Hello. Welcome. No Blue Angel. I think the center marble is an Indian. Akro Blue Eggyolk on center left. Top left appears to be an Akro Prize Name corkscrew. Bottom left may also be. Top right and bottom right are also Akros. Right center is a Peltier Rainbo. Bottom middle looks like a Master from here. More views could change my mind. Top middle is a West Virginia Swirl. Many of those marbles are from the 1930's. Two or three possibly a little later. The Indian most likely older.
  4. Happy Father's Day, I'm new to this forum and to marbles (and to marble picture-taking). These are some old, family marbles that I'm trying to classify. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Jon

    Thanks!!!!! I really appreciate the help.
  6. I was pretty sure after I had the marbles out of the bag that they weren't old. Another thing I just noticed is that the hole in the label / hanger won't even fit over the neck of Coke bottle. I'm still paying for a marble education. Fortunately this wasn't an expensive lesson. Ron, thanks for your help!
  7. I believe the determining factor is if the base glass glows when backlit. These are NLR era mArbles , color combos can vary . Here’s another with a green base and red ribbons sometimes called a Translucent Dragon.
  8. Here’s a newly acquired example
  9. Oh ok I see . I haven't seen any of these. Nice looking for sure .
  10. @orbboy? ... were you a snake fan? @disco005? .... I know you are

    I was seeing it is as a machine-made mark compounded with cold rolls. I could still be mistaken.
  12. Not 1950-60's. All newer marbles. A fantasy bag, there are hundreds of different ones out there. I doubt that the bag was cellophane. Original packaged marbles in old cellophane bags are rare. Most of them are stiff and brittle and break like thin glass. Plus Coke never packaged any marbles in a bottle hanger cellophane bag. Most of the Coke bagged marbles are not original. One key for original plastic bagged marbles, is the heat sealed seam down the center on the back side of the bag. If the plastic bag does not have this seam, be cautious. It is easy to make rust on the staples.
  13. In the first pic they look like red clearies, except the center mib. as for rarity, I have no clue.
  14. Here are two pics. The center is a two-color red/blue.
  15. Hi , Mr. Schmoozer can you post a pic of your rare Akro snake ?
  16. Last week
  17. Bought a bag of Coca-Cola giveaways at an antique mall. Staples are rusty, the label looked right and the bag is cellophane so I figured they were legit. Now that I see them out of the bag I'm not so sure. Are these 1950's / 60's? Any ides about the maker?
  18. Yes, transparent...🤭 I did some digging around and found 4 examples, all red. Don’t remember seeing this type with any other transparent color.

    That's a beaut. My first thought was that Motown's looked vintage, but then the more I looked at it, the more I leaned Vacor. Would love to be wrong!

    How about a Japanese Crease Pontil Transitional with "Oxblood".
  21. How rare are clear- colored snakes with a clear base? I have a red example that I almost tossed, thinking it was a catseye. It is very hard to photograph...
  22. Me neither. Note the circular cold rolls on the red ones... seems to be a somewhat common trait on Kokomos. The size too... around 9/16".
