  1. #1 is German, but that's kinda grouping a lot of "manufacturers" into one. Good topic. It would be interesting to have a poll attached to this thread. Since for me, I had to consider a few machine made companies for the top two, and there were definitely some non-contenders (personal preference, still have great examples)
  2. For me it started with winning marbles and making new friends in grade school.
  3. Trick question? They sure look like Akro but I've heard of a guy that's pretty good with oxblood formulas and marble machines... Brian, Bob or something like that
  4. Top left for sure. Yeah there are a couple interesting ones there..., but (just a suggestion) if a group pic is arrayed in columns and rows you might get more responses. Since "the one kind of to the 3 o'clock position near the center could be a Pelt" would be more than some people would take the time to type
  5. Looks more like a swirl to me, maybe Champion?
  6. Wow, OK you win! That's a stunner! I'd almost call it a work of art instead of a kids marble.
  7. ooo..tough one. Akro on 1,2 (possibility of MFC on 2). 3rd I'd wager Alley, but a couple views kinda looks like a wonky Pelt (I'm pretty confident it isn't). #4 no idea
  8. 2 would be an odd color combo for a Peltier Peerless Patch?
  9. 😳🤩 nice bright colors on that one Chad. Condition looks top notch as well.
  10. Pelt was the first thing to cross my mind, but some other angles might help
  11. I just unpacked these a couple weeks ago after moving storage, good timing. You guys have some impressive bottles.
  12. Last one looks like a Vitro helmet, and I'm trying to think if I've ever seen one with that color combo before...
  13. Here's an old pic of some old Germans that Leroy "mended", I know some people frown upon polishing but he did a good job saving this group
  14. I agree the middle one looks Pelt.... but a little off....polished maybe?
  15. I'm with CAC on the first, seems like one missing view would bring it all together. Second l'd lean Akro based on probability (shear numbers produced) but it could be something else.
  16. You mean back in the day = when they were originally retailed? I wasn't around then, but I suspect most of the nicer one's ended up as matched sets in early catalog gift boxes, at a premium. At the time, a random bulk lot to be delivered to the corner store up the street, makes more sense than the other side of the country.
  17. Looks kind of like a paneled onionskin to me. The surface condition could have been from aquarium, river, sea, lots of play time, etc. I like the symmetry
  18. If it's glass, the "sulfide" detail would seem absurdly large (close to the edge) to insert into that size sphere. My guess is it would have been ground down, as I suspect the paperweight would also have required. Take it with a grain of salt, never made one myself.
  19. Cool about your Grandpa. With regards to the marbles, I've seen pictures before but never had one/held one personally. I recall somebody posted one a while back and trying to recall if he said it was polymer (rather than glass) or if he used a polymer on the surface to freshen things up.
  20. Very interesting. I didn't recall seeing a blue one like that before, lots of purples and greens. But I do have a bigger slag with pontil and reverse "9" so maybe that's where it came from?
