  4. I completely forgot I had this - haven't seen it in probably 15-20 years. It's always fun to find a nice marble, even if you already own it. 🙂 Neon Bee

  13. I am convinced they were made by Master. I have found some smaller masters in the exact same color combinations as the Paul Bunyans. When I met Roger Hardy, there was a similar conversation and he also said Master made them. Funny how I can remember that conversation but I can't remember what my wife told me to get at the store once I get there.

  15. This picture shows two different categories. Moss Agate patches on top to the right of center. Ace corkscrews on the bottom right. So it shows that in one way that the Ace bases can look similar to the white-based moss agates. But there are differences also. The moss base is very smooth in consistency. The Ace base is a little more spongy and sometimes you might see a grain in it, like with an Acme Realer. It's supposed to have an orange glow inside when held up to a light, like with the Acme Realer. But I don't think it was consistent. The base could be very dense, or it could be very wispy. Too dense you and don't get enough light through for the glow. Too wispy and you might lose the glow for a different reason. I don't think the Ace lasted long as a production item. The Moss Agate lasted for years and years. There were swirl and corkscrew versions, not just patches. There really aren't that many clearly identified Aces floating around. There are a lot of Moss Agates. And some of the Moss Agates get called Aces.

  22. I think this one is so beautiful in all its simplicity. I found it recently among several not so exciting marbles, second hand. It’s a four strand stripey but it’s ”arched” in a special way, creating a clear cavity in the middle. 😍

  25. I had a stroke New Years Eve, nearly died, don't remember much, but came out of it. weak but raring to go. People call me 'A Miracle Girl" but I just call me Bonnie, work hard, and am now on my walker and practicing on my cane. there are few signs, except for my voice- I can't talk much above a loud whisper, much to Bills delight .Fortunately, that won't bother you folks at all. I hope some of you missed me and I'll see you soon- LOL- Bonnie

  32. White does count as a color with Akros. You definitely have a three-color marble. Akro might have sold it as a Tri-Color Agate. I just can't be sure. ^^ See, they're counting white as a color. Popeye is the collector's name for what Akro called a Tri-Onyx Agate. The basic Akro Onyx is a white cork in a transparent base. (The base could be colored or clear.) Their Tri-Onyx Agate was two non-white colors plus white filaments in a clear base. You don't have the filamented white in a clear base. That's why no Popeye here.

  34. I bought one of these and have been in the land of glowies for days- I even found some in the cullet from Pennsboro. So much fun, that’s the great thing about marbles they take you back, because I was back in my lavender bedroom circa 1973 with black lights and posters listening to Pink Floyd, “Us and Them.” Lava lamp too! I was a young child and thought I was so cool trying to emulate my older sister! You all have a great rest of your day. The husband will be home soon so I have to be resting.

  37. There you go. When in doubt don't go with Ron. These must have been made after Dave left Jabo. Those 5/8 size runs of patch and ribbon marbles always fool me. Some look the same or very close to Vitro's. Once again you can make a swirl, patch or patch and ribbon type marble on the same exact machine.
