    Is this Akro or Christensen?

    Well, great info. I don't know why I had the idea the lashes we're unique to Akro. Thank you for the correction. I love this place. Everyone is so kind with sharing. I've become accustomed to a heavy dose arrogance from the guitar collectors forums I visit. Thanks again!

    Hello! From Arkansas 😊

    Welcome, Jen! Not so long ago I was your neighbor. I moved from Oklahoma back to the west coast a couple of years ago. It's great to hear about simple real world objects being shared within families. Don't get me wrong, I'm a product of the computer age, but real life has so much inherent romance to keep the mind fascinated...

    Hello from Minnesota

    Welcome Chad! Can I call you Hurl? Old family farms are some of the most interesting places to explore the land and learn the history.

    Hello from Cambridge England

    Welcome, crashbelt! Interesting info to say the least, thanks for sharing. Clearly you have a strong passion for what you do. Admirable. Are the lines on the boards burned on, painted? Carved and stained?

    Id please

    I'm looking at this and thinking the right one is a modern clay orb. Very well done though, if so. But seriously, don't consider my input, it's sub novice at this point lol

    Is this Akro or Christensen?

    I'm sure my follow up question here is addressed someplace, but for the sake of redundancy, and keeping conversation (knowledge) flowing; What is the process that creates those unique "eyelash" tells?

    It is too bad about the condition, although I think every marble I own is damaged in one way or another. It's a strategy though. I don't want to make any real purchases until I get a real confident grasp of our avocation.

    Chance to purchase...

    Thank you all for the input, and sorry for the delayed response. I haven't even touched a marble in some weeks. Life happens, even though it's kinda odd for it to happen without even one single marble kicking around in a pocket, or the console in my car...lol BTW, the price realized on those bags shows just how much people think they are going to make a quick $ in this world. If I recall they sold in the neighborhood of $30.

    Chance to purchase...

    I have the chance to pick up this lot of marbles, anything worth having, and what should I offer? I know, weird questions, they are worth what I am willing to pay...but I don't know much about these...

    What Are You Eating Right Now?! (:

    I'm not a miracle whip fan, but I keep a jar in the fridge for those time I crave a pb&mw sandwich. Try it, it's really good! Longstory short, ran away from home (to the basement storeroom) because mom wouldn't give in on my restriction and give back my six million dollar man action figure. Brother found me crying behind the water heater. To console me he showed me the sandwich that always made him feel better when he was down. PB&MW. My first comfort food.

    What Are You Eating Right Now?! (:

    Cheap white bread has its place. Tuna salad? Grilled cheese? PB&J? Granted these can all be good on artisan bread as well. One sandwich that does not do so well without cheap white bread, peanut butter and miracle whip.

    Ready for cats?

    So, this last picture, the fur marble as I refer to it, my GF is a surgical tech, she calls it the "knee marble" because it looks just like the inside of a knee. She has been showing off the pictures to all the doctors in the surgery center. One happens to be a bit of a collector of coins. I bet he offers me some money for it. May have to gauge his excitement and ask a slightly inflated price lol!!

    Cat's eye with debris inside

    No kidding, I would love to run across something like that!

    Wait, Steph, have you seen a marble with something really different in it?

    Found Gladden All Red?

    I found this in a bag at the bottom of a collection I just picked up. It was marked Gladden All Red. Assume vitro?
