  1. Craig you deserve a medal for doing this. If you ever want to pass the hat to help offset costs I’m in, and I’m sure others would be as well.
  2. I’m so sorry. I thoroughly enjoyed my brief time with him over the years. His generosity in sharing the Peltier Mansion run at JABO was truly impressive. We lost a great guy.
  3. Wow...I don’t know what that top beauty is either but that’s one heckuva tree trim! Tinsel needs to play catch some serious catch-up. Merry Christmas, Steph, and thanks for the posts, it’s been a lot of fun. Thanks for all you’ve done for the us and the hobby, and may the rest of your holiday be as shiny and bright as the first marble you dream about tonight... Happy holidays to everyone! Royal
  4. Sounds like it a contract “hit” lol - I’m sure one of Santa’s helpers has a tag somewhere.
  5. Really well done, Stephen, thanks for sharing your extensive collection and knowledge. I just love those Guacamayas - and about 50 others, natch.
  6. Andre is looking pretty good for a ghost 😆 That’s one fine Bee! Sweet MM too - is that a Liberty?
  7. I just started my own letter to Santa Claus after that one! 😍
  8. I’d say it’s highly likely from anecdotal evidence and the absence of other strong candidates.
  9. Great work on saving all this history, Chuck. The contrast in the two cullet checks is interesting - the MK cullet is a penny a pound, pretty typical I think. The one to Bogard Cullet Co. is a lot of cash.
  10. I wish I may, I wish I might... - a 7/8” turquoise German “9” slag with oxblood & egg yolk - a 7/8” black clambroth with sharp white pinstripes - a four-color lightning strike (red/green, blue/yellow) - just one drop-dead gorgeous Joseph’s coat and banded opaque (B.Bee, we might have to talk - I have a purple & yellow Canadian trans 😉)
  11. Member wvrons club keeps an excellent listing of the nation’s marble shows @ http://westvirginiamarblecollectorsclub.com/news/
  12. That’s just a fabulous handmade, and a nice size, too. I wonder if there’s a whole solitaire board of those out there (he says hopefully😉?)
  13. I’m sorry I missed those, Galen, when I saw Lee’s collection - he’s got an amazing one. I bet those old German craftsmen didn’t waste much glass. I doubt those ‘fuseballs’ made it out into the field but probably stayed in the family. Most I’ve seen don’t have much if any play wear.
  14. OK, I’m ignorant here - Canadian Mushroom marble?? Are they at all related to the Canadian transitionals? Is this purple/yellow a typical example?
  15. Seems to be a two color swirl where the brown overlaid the blue in places making it look like three colors, but it’s difficult to tell definitively from your pictures. Fairly common combination for CAC, but they only produced marbles for about eight years. It looks mint, and if so I’d definitely keep that beauty.
