  1. Would this be an Alley due to the white filament swirl and the bits of "oven brick"? It has a regular "9" (seen easily in the 2nd photo).
  2. @wvrons What characteristics of the marble show Champion?
  3. @wvrons That is truly interesting info on the making of handmades, especially that children were making them! Kind Regards, James
  4. I'm thinking Cairo due to the "Z" pattern in the 5th photo. There is a "Z" pattern, just not fully visible in the photo. What do you think? Kind Regards, <(^..^)>
  5. Hey All, I like vintage machine mades and BIG contemporary marbles and anything catches my eye. One thing on my bucket list is to go to a marble show! Argh! How long can this last? ๐Ÿ™„
  6. Here's a sampling of the 25/32" marbles that is in the title of this thread. No two are alike. Whaddya think? <(^..^)>
  7. Oh, the good ol' magic marker marbles... I remember when those came "out of the ground" while preparing for the Atlanta Olympics ๐Ÿ˜„ I'll take a few photos and upload them. Thanks!
  8. Still a 'maybe'... The Vacor Wicked Owls don't have nearly as many internal swirls. I'm just guessing ๐Ÿคจ
  9. So, I just had to see what was inside some marbles that I've had for over 10 years. I chose one that was one of the smallest (and slightly out-of-round), put it in a vise and hit it with a hammer a few times. They're quite hard, too. Inside looks like and feels like glass. As I stated in the title, these are HEAVY for their size. LEFT PHOTOGRAPH: The middle marble is the one that I hit with a hammer a few times. I know that the marble in the middle doesn't show much of the internal glass, but it is there. The marble on the far right is white-green with a strip of metal on the surface. The far left marble is the pink-blue-tan-white one. RIGHT PHOTOGRAPH: The two marbles on the left (now looking at the right photo) are the same two in the left photograph. The far right marble (blue-brown-white with red-green-white spots) is one of the marbles in question. For comparison in weight, I chose one of the marbles in question and then found a Marble King of the exact same size. They both measure 25/32". The Marble King weighs 32 grams and the marble in question weighs 61 grams, almost 2X the weight of the same size Marble King. Let me know what you think. Thanks!
  10. It's awesome, no matter what it is or how old...
  11. Thanks, Steph! Your ID page is awesome, by the way. Thanks for everything that you do. It's got to keep you busy, for sure. Kind Regards, <(^..^)>
  12. Hey All, I can't find a photo or description of this marble. I'm thinking Alley. Anyone else? There are two different marbles in the photos. Thanks! <(^..^)>
  13. I'm pretty sure that this is an Alley Agate "Jolly Green Giant" and it ends this evening on ebay. 27/32", NM+. Jolly Green Giant
