I see what you're saying. I wondered about that too. That's still my best guess. Maybe some runs did have it. Michelangelo runs were different from year to year. Maybe Hurricane runs were also?

Well, I really don't know. So I won't keep trying to convince you! :)

As a newbie still... I saw a pic of Kelly Schmidt's (Schmidtglass) work -- a box set of striped opaques and guineas -- and TOTALLY thought they were CAC!

(I also don't have any CAC guineas or stripes of any sort to compare to yet, so there's that...)

But I just got one of his guineas in the mail yesterday ~

I think I'll need to get a striped from him eventually, too!

 

Anyway... yeah that box set really threw me! Couple screenshots of the set that threw me, from a public FB group -- didn't realize "Set #2" meant a set that he actually MADE!!!! Had thought it was a CAC set he just put together to sell... I was mistaken!

And then I found out, no no no, he actually made those marbles! 😄

And another box set of his I saw later after I joined his FB group. Super cool!!!

Its really amazing how vintage some vacors look. If anyone ever wanted to put pics together side by side of modern look alikes and their vintage counterpart would be helpfull i think. I would try but probably end up putting moderns bedide moderns. I like the topic . Cheers for all input
