  1. Is it true that a transparent red base is very rare in a helmet? Seems so with these pics...
  2. I had a true 7/8ths red and yellow popeye...sold it years ago for good$$...haven't seen one since.
  3. just had to return a "wet mint" 2 color snake from them......it had been polished and still had visible defects from smoothed out chips. GRR!
  4. This is amazing...click on the marble machine video once at this site..... https://www.facebook.com/Whoatastic/videos?fref=photo
  5. this guy is quite serious.... i sent him the link to this thread.... here's his response New message from: bybytoys (1,124) Made in Vienna some time prior to the 1945 move to Pittsburg. called Tri lites three color. I believe the Peltiers teamed up with the Vitro family and shared secrets until the Peltier brothers moved out and opened there own company in the United States. Although mine all clearly have a least 4 colors and the added patch. None of the Tri lites pictures below have the added patch and last extra clear layer. See if you can expand the picture below. Thanks very much. Bob.

  6. Thanks, I was thinking the larger sized marbles might be a little more HTF....Still a good find!
  7. Hello all, Found this bag in a box at an estate sale...only marble related thing in the whole house. Seems like the marbles are 13/16ths by my eye. Are these considered parrots or parakeets or???? Value Please? Thnx
  8. Here's a couple of what I believe are Akro Experimentals...true black patch on a highly florescent base. Wish I had more of these in different sizes! Anyone?
  9. oops, meant to post that in the color of the month thread
  10. Here's a couple you don't see that often... I believe they are Akro Experimentals with a true black patch on a highly fluorescent base. Wish I had more of other sizes!
  11. You would also like these for the party! Straws or stirrers....

    Received an interesting agate displaying an image inclusion...I call it my Italy agate. I think I'll hang onto this one, its rather cool!
  13. These came together, all have that transparent red, but the big one (the most attractive) doesn't cork. I believe these should remain in the popeye category, just a little different but desirable nonetheless.
  14. Thought I might chime in on the Akro Shooters I like best...all 15/16 or larger ....Enjoy! Thanks, Phil
  15. Now listed on the 'bay w/free shipping....check it out! http://www.ebay.com/itm/271551614557?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 Thanks
  16. You're right Anne.... I would never split them up. Looking for a buyer...if anyone here wants to offer up a fair price..... PM me Phil
  17. Very rare is nice to hear....I'm not a box collector so I'll be selling this box when I have some idea of its worth in this condition. Thanks for the info Bob.
  18. Found this box in a Little Rock antique store ......tried to find this box online with no luck. Is this a rare box? Thanks, Phil
