  1. I can't answer why Miller Machine is no longer used, but I have some of these and believe they are called multicolor swirls (MCS). If they have ribbons instead they are multicolor ribbons (MCR). To me, all 5 do appear to be Peltier MCS. Others will kindly correct me if I'm mistaken.
  2. I would have guessed this was a CAC but it is 0.79-0.82" out of round. Very confused.
  3. Of course a pic would help, wouldn't it?
  4. This marble looks like a game marble except for a really big eye and what looks like a seam. Any thoughts?
  5. These three stuck out from the rest - can anyone ID? The first is very blonde, the second lighter than most ambers and the third is just really cool! Thanks!
  6. Thanks - I'm adding some better shots of the ox if that helps. The glass is clear with no tint - for some reason today's lighting showed up blueish
  7. What do you think - are all four Alleys? The first looks an awful lot like pictures of a Pennsboro I've seen elsewhere. Is there a way to tell where certain Alleys were made? I'm happy with just a maker ID but thought I'd ask. Thanks!
  8. Could I please get some help with ids on these - all have me stumped. The ox seems more swirl than cork, plus it floats on one end and dives through the middle to a spot on the other end and is syrupy? The last one I thought was Akro seams but the patch looks almost like a Berry Pink? Thanks!
  9. I'm seeing Peltier multi-colored swirl colors/glass, but I'm very new at this so just my guess.
  10. There are small bubbles in the glass, but second to last set of pictures is surface damage. I think I've figured something out - see if this makes sense: it appears to me to be a CAC cyclone that has been damaged and polished. I noticed a somewhat slippery feel to the marble and much of the surface pits are rounded and smooth rather than sharp like I have seen on other marbles. Can polishing make detection of the seam more difficult? In any case, I appreciate all the feedback. Time for me to move on to other puzzles!
  11. The 9 o'clock must have been a reflection. I can't locate a second seam even with a loupe. There is an interesting sharp cut off in the last black fleck (see below) which seems to extend beyond the fleck with a barely noticeable change in the glass to the left, but I wouldn't think it is a seam. It is odd how the fleck is stretched at one angle (see 1st pic of additional photos) but a straight line at another angle. Would a dealer be able to confirm if I took it to a show? Being in FL there's no place I know to get an expert opinion.
  12. Yes, transparent green base as far as I can see. I did find some discussions on other forums about these. I have to ask since it sounds like some are darker - I know there are MFC white bricks and black bricks and the look is quite different depending. Could there also be MFC white green bricks and black green bricks? Personally, I really love the ratio of oxblood to green and white in mine. I can see why people rarely part with these!
  13. Here are the add'l pics - the size of the marble is 0.65 inches. Thanks!
  14. I could get lost in this marble following that brown around. Really cool. Is tracer the correct term for it?
  15. based on the crease pontil. Anyone know a date range on these?
