  1. I’d say it’s highly likely from anecdotal evidence and the absence of other strong candidates.
  2. 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.
  3. 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 😉)
  4. Member wvrons club keeps an excellent listing of the nation’s marble shows @ http://westvirginiamarblecollectorsclub.com/news/
  5. 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😉?)
  6. 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.
  7. OK, I’m ignorant here - Canadian Mushroom marble?? Are they at all related to the Canadian transitionals? Is this purple/yellow a typical example?
  8. 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.
  9. LOL I’ll second that reaction! What a beauty! That oxblood is so rich on that white.
  10. 🤯 Only Hansel can come up with stuff like that! ☺️
  11. I agree - I find these oddballs fascinating, as do many other collectors. This one is especially interesting.
  12. I’m just curious - faceted pontil?
  13. I'm sorry to report that Robert "Brian" Merhar from Hudson, Wisconsin, a longtime collector, passed away suddenly on December 10, 2018. Brian was one of the driving forces behind the JABO Ace run that I was a partner in on October 10, 2008 and I got to know him reasonably well during that entire process. He was one of a kind. My thoughts go out to his family. https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/twincities/obituary.aspx?pid=190979965
  14. Thanks for the primer on the process, Alan, I wondered how he made them. They are cute little things, aren't they?
  15. My condolences to all of his loved ones. I had just learned of his passing from a friend - such a shame, he was a gem.
