  1. In July 2020, I found a Canadian M.F. Christensen Patent in Belpre, Ohio. Upon further speaking with the antique dealer, the patent came from an estate sale in Bridgeport, West Virginia, to him. I contacted Michael Cohill (M.F. Christensen Expert), Michael Johnson (Co-Author of “American Machine-Made Marbles”, and Roger Hardy (Owner of the worlds largest Akro Agate collection and author of “The Complete Line of Akro Agate”) and I combed through the records that they sent me. I interviewed them while going through the entire records with them and received their approval when the report was finished and sent to them for verification.

  2. I saw orange Peel like texture and few bubbles and I thought... Maybe I have something here.
  3. Hello all! This is my first post here on this forum. I've been looking around and it looks like you folks here are truly knowledgeable and helpful. I respect your willingness and am kindly requesting you'd assist me as well. I have a few pounds of vintage and antique marbles, and have chosen the ones I believe are the best looking. Can't wait to see what you guys think. If the marbles are worthy, please request additional, and more focused images. I will gladly provide them If it matters most of these marbles were salvaged in Canada, mostly northern Ontario and New Brunswick. Thanks a Milly, in advance of your assistance. 🙏 Thank you, Sara the newbie 😁

    Marble with groove

    Is this a rare vintage piece? I found it in central Arkansas while hunting for arrowheads. Any info would be much appreciated

    Hello, I have recently come across my fathers marbles and need help identifying them.
  6. Hi all, I recently collected about 70 marbles at a New Jeresy flea market and Antique shop, These were some of the better ones . If anyone sees something out of the ordinary please let me know. I'm pretty confident these are all vintage.
  7. Hi all , someone is selling these on instagram, they claim to be vintage and the location is two hours away. Do you think these look vintage or more like the newer Vacor Marbles that are around nowadays. Any help would be appreciated, I would hate to take a four hour round trip to the location to be disappointed. Thankyou, for any tips ! Stephen
