  1. On a side note, I’m hoping they are vacor and we can prove it . The black, yellow and orange ones do fool a lot of people and there is a definite type that has higher quality glass that rivals cac when put next to each other. Like someone said before, the early michaelangelos are sweet. IMHO, if it could be proven, there might be an early run of each type that is just stellar and highly collectible. This is way better than the vague “German circus” that is probably hearsay
  2. Here are mine. The outside two have av in the transparent green. The left one is smaller and has mottling on the surface. The left also has a perfect turkey like cac would and honestly a lot of people thought these were cac. The middle is a vacor like you guys have for comparison. The left is like bumblebees. Is it possible that whoever you bought this from assumed it was vacor and just threw it in with the others of similar color. My opinion is that besides the colors, there isn’t really any similarities in construction. The av and the straight cut mark in the left plus the vibrant colo
  3. Ok that’s interesting. They came from stock boxes? I have some from vacor that don’t and then there are these with the green av all over the trans green.
  4. The ones you are comparing to have aventurine in the transparent green. Do yours?
  5. Awesome Info and ephemera! Thanks again for sharing. Post more cool stuff if you get a chance
  6. Hansel, this letter came with a 2 page jobber list. Complete with types, sizes and prices. I’ll try and post better pics when it arrives. Craig
  7. Craig, Did you buy this letter? My buddy got the jobber list, I’ll try and post a pic of it. Maybe we can trade copies with each other? Craig
  8. My guess is that these are the construction of a bloodie. Just blue instead of red. I’ve looked into this before. I dont Think they are anything special. So it would be opaque white with transparent blue swirls.
  9. I only have one two seamer. Nice rare score bro!
  10. Bill, can you bring those cac lace marbles for me to see please. Thanks! craig
  11. Excellent score, really happy for you, these are outstanding!
  12. So I picked this up 1 19/32”. Pretty clean with a faceted Pontil. Scattered mica. Waviness in the glass. Colors are a bit off but I’ve seen handmades with weird colors. What are your thoughts? New? Old? You won’t hurt my feelings
  13. I thought I’ve seen this bag before in a book with similar content. Although I counted and there isn’t 100 on my quick count...
  14. Who knows about these? I came Across one today and would like a little info on rarity etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Craig
  15. I think the A could be an attractIve box. I also think the 5a and 10a might be the Peltier graphic boxes from above in George’s article...
  16. This is the most important part: Although studying the artwork and the fine print in this 6 consecutive-year sequence of ads has yielded great insight into these two Gropper boxes, at least 2 more important conclusions can be drawn. The change from the 103- National Onyx boxes to the 1931 National Rainbo boxes may mark the start of production by Peltier of the National Rainbo style. Also, the popularity of the slag (onyx) was fading fast. The ads for 1931 could easily have featured both lines, but they did not. The National Onyx line was so much less desirable then the Nati
