    End of Day

    This showed up in the mail today. New seller described it as an Akro. Ummm? No.

    Initially described as a Transitional, seller contacted me and said she came to believe it was Bulgarian and I could cancel the buy. I wanted to see it in hand and she offered to take it back if I'd pay return postage. It's a very pretty mib. Just under 15/16 (29/32). Very rough pontil - third photo. Comments welcome.

    Bulgarian confirmed over on AllAboutMarbles.com

    Transitional Marble - Makers?

    I've just called them Japanese Transitionals.

    Family ID?

    Colors make me think Christensen Agate.

    That is one sad bag...

    Need help!

    I'm afraid I agree with Jabo.

    Pelt or M.F. or Akro?

    Not seeing slag. I'm going with WV swirl.

    Master or Akro?

    Not Master. Eye lashes do lean towards Akro.

    Cheese -- I've got a fellow collector friend who's dying to find another Toucan. There has *got* to be more out there. Repost of my pair.

    Mostly Pix - Peltier

    Took this photo for another forum, but thought I should post it here also. Four early Peltier NLR swirls. All just under 7/8. Little Superboy is just under 5/8 for comparison. A Spiderman, a wannabe Flaming Dragon, a Rebel and a Ketchup and Mustard.
  12. A group of contemporaries in my collection. Love the Kitty at the top.
  13. Late to the party. Your Blue Sky is in fact a Blue Sky and I'm pretty certain your Coral is an Alley Coral. Transparent base or opaque? This matched set of Ravens I acquired more than 15 years ago. Fourth and Sixth columns are the most common brown-based Blue and Green swirls. The second column seems to be much harder to find.

    So... Here you go. A bit of color.

    Mostly Pix - Alley

    Actually, that's a great idea. I'll find something colorful and post another.

    Mostly Pix - Alley

    Back in the first part of January, I posted an Alley grey and white flame. I thought it was pretty unusual and didn't expect to find a twin for some while. Two days ago another came into my possession. First one on the left and new one on the right. And this is *not* a black and white photo.
  17. This showed up in the mail today. Described as a Czech Purple/Yellow Guinea. Transparent purplish/pinkish base and yellow ribbons. Pretty obvious bullet mold. Kind of small at 17/32.

    Czech Bullet Mold

    I *really* don't consider mine to be a Guinea. Seller used the phrase to make the sale. Still think it's a pretty cool bullet mold marble.

    Found a box for twins

    Collecting twins can be fun. Adds another level to the collecting. Especially if you end up some harder to find orphans.

    Mostly Pix - Alley

    Not the brightest Alley Flame in my collection. Still I kind of love it.
  21. Guess I'll pile on to. Think they're both Alley. First on just doesn't have a CAC feeling for me.

    Mostly Pix - M. F. Christensen & Son

    MFC Tornado. Digging through my junk box this slag appeared. A kind of weak '9', but one heck of a tornado down through the center of the marble.

    What is a "snotty" CAC?

    Hmm?? Never backlit the blue one before, but it does appear to have blue glass mixed with clear. Unfortunately I won't be making Canton this year - or probably any year.
