  1. There are lots of them that boost the color saturation and things like that, yes. Usually they overdo it and it's obvious. Cedarman7 is a good seller and a good person, you'll do well dealing with him.
  2. Yes, any swirl can make a turkey head pattern. CAC being famous for it since it happens more frequently on theirs. JABO classics were single fold marbles, meaning the ingot was short and fat and all it could do is fold in half to make the marble as it hit the rollers. This creates a C or U shape, the famous JABO buttcrack, and makes them easier to ID. Cairo also used this type of construction but usually a little more pattern and lesser quality glass and often bubbles. St. Mary's Alleys can sometimes have a similar construction and exhibit turkey heads or Cs. Vacor also occasionally can do this. It's a useful tool int he ID bag.
  3. Sweet mibs there^ ! I meant to post a photo of the previous one I posted along with cullet from the factory.
  4. Good thought... playing marbles helped me lean several life lessons. It taught to play fair, how it feels to gamble and lose, how to hedge your bets, social skills, dealing with loss, accepting that there is always someone else better than you, and that some folks are willing to cheat and how to deal with it. Probably more.
  5. I can't remember what I've posted and what I haven't here. Got a ton of Pelt pics though, so here are a few more
  6. Pretty much the last thing you would think of when you think of CAC
  7. The broadly curved seam took it to Akro from Master, which it what it looked like with the narrow curved seam. The glass doesn't really look lie Master either. The eyelashes at the seams put both Master and Akro to mind immediately and then it was process of elimination.
  8. Oh I get all kinds of anxious when someone holds a marble over something hard. Almost panicky if it's a good one. I've had so many marbles dropped and I've dropped some myself. I've dropped someone else's marble once. I dropped a fellow collector's marble once so far, it belonged to John S. and I was over concrete at Ron's house . Thankfully it didn't hurt it. You can't handle marbles and not drop one at some point no matter how hard you try.
  9. I'm betting there have been more than one person who thought to themselves, "Oh man, I should not have asked Chuck about marbles... mental note, avoid that topic from now on... I didn't want to talk about them for 2 hours". More than once someone has asked about marbles and before long I'm toting boxes of marbles into the living room lol. I've had dreams about marbles too, and arrowheads.
  10. I have to go to my Masters to do it, but here are two. I could be swayed that any of these were Akro but I have them in my Masters after looking closely at the seams and striations and such. Opinions on that welcome. Some fall into an area that makes it difficult to determine one or the other but usually I can settle on one over the other. The transparent blue one has eyelashes in the blue in the top right photo.
  11. Nice group Stephenb! Here's a few more, including a shooter (the red/yellow swirl). I forget the size on it, close to 3/4" though.
  12. I agree with Vitro, Peltier, Aley Peltier, Peltier. The middle Peltier in the top row is an uncommon one, best one in the group by far IMO.
