  3. Just picked up this sweet Akro ashtray, aventurine and Oxblood. It does have a tiny little chip on the rim but it was 20 bucks and a really nice color combo.

  4. A guy and I were talkin' on Saturday, He collects old surveyor's equipment. Anyway he gave me about a gallon of marbles. About what you'd expect, lotsa slingshot ammo, but I did pull these out... An Akro with enough goin' on inside to be interesting, and enough ox to make me happy. Also a nice opalescent Rainbo. The 3rd photo is what I think is a messed up sunset and a weak Alley (or weak CAC). Weak but still nice. Thanks Bruce

  6. I think there is a corkscrew w/ that color combo ?? I haven't seen it but I was looking at the transparent blue and noticed it didn't go all the way to the other pole, that's why I suggested Alley. To qualify as a cork it has to go from pole to pole w/ at least some rotation, if no rotation it's a patch but both must go from on e pole to another. I posted a pic of both ends to illustrate what I'm talking about, note the ends are nearly next to one another at the point of termination !! Corkscrews can meander quite a bit but will always end up at the other pole to qualify as one.

  7. I love this cork. At first the cork looks black, but it is really a dark translucent red.

  24. I do love German hand mades, especially onions. The pinkish one is my baby...2.5" studded with mica, the blue mottled one is 2" and looks great for being lightly polished.. another favorite a multilobed onion, reminds me of an impressionist painting comes in at 1 5/8"

  27. These are Modern Asian. The type often called Imperial because they many were distributed in the U.S. by the Imperial Toy Company. The turquoise one has threads of oxblood. That's a popular thing to find, not uncommon. This family of marbles can be very pretty. And there are variations you might never see more than once. I _might_ have seen this combo one other time. For awhile I hoped it was something other than "Imperial" but I can't think of anything else it could be.

  28. I have this one in my Pelt patch box and I'm not sure why. The ends of the patches seem squared off enough for it to be an Akro. I don't know what made me put it in with the Pelts -- possibly it was a gift from a Pelt digger. I don't recall now. I'll leave it in the box for now. And I do want to mention that while Pelt patches are famous for wild shapes, if you look at photos of the Pelt comic marbles, you can see that some Peerless Patches could indeed have squared off edges and look pretty much like Akros.
