  1. This one has a sizable chip in it -- which you get a glimpse of at the bottom of this view. But if it were in better shape I probably wouldn't have been able to get it. And from most angles there's no heartbreak at all.

    Hi Barb. Welcome. Identifying is easier than assigning value. One way is watch ebay sales. An important thing to keep in mind is that condition is paramount. One ding can cut a marble's value in half. If you want to post a group pic we can get a feel for what you have. For ID's, generally post a few marbles per thread. That's the most manageable way.
  3. I don't think so. But I don't know what the middle one is. I think maybe a plain corkscrew. The box is so fragile I don't even want to pull the tab out once to check to see what it is for sure. Three that I can see are pretty beat up -- one of those is a simple German handmade. Box was sent by a friend who knew I would appreciate it no matter the condition. The marbles were just filler.
  4. A facebook game I play has contests on its fanpage. The prizes are things you can use in the game. This time they asked us to submit our symbols of spring. I gave marbles a plug. (The card was required to show you actually took the picture.) The assignment was to draw or make something, so I drew a marble ring for the follow-up photo ... didn't have chalk ... used my chubby colored pencil.
  5. Jason? This one is for you. @bumblebee
  6. LOL, no it doesn't! That's perfect for a quarantine name.
  7. Here's the thread, folks: https://marbleconnection.com/topic/25570-what-are-these-2-called
  8. Someone at another forum I go to is playing a game where they say your quarantine name is the last thing you ate followed by the name of your high school mascot. And it was only then, after all these many years, that I remembered our high school team name and connected it with marbles. We were the Jackson Aggies. lol
  9. Wow. They look really nice and unusual. I want the first to be Christensen, but going back to maybe Leighton on the second. @I'llhavethat1 ... any thoughts? Am I just making stuff up?

    I wonder

    Ooooh ... I'll go with scrumptious Akro corkscrew. A very frilly auger.
  11. Mike, I didn't mean to slight you when I tagged Alan. I know you have some great marbles. I just wasn't remembering the extent of your specialties.
  12. I tried to follow along with clockwise, but got confused and now I realize I went counterclockwise. Doh.

    I see why you might think of Vitro. I'm between Master and foreign -- but not limiting to "Imperial" -- wondering about European or Mexican also.
