I thought this might be fun...post a pic of the rarest marble (handmade or machine) in your collection, those unique marbles you only find once in a lifetime. Here's mine, a LARGE 1-3/8" beachball Indian Lutz. I've never seen one like it.

Hey Jeroen, do you have any of those "Greiner Marbles"?

Go to the thread titled " Show us your first glass marbles mass-produced."

Here are some of the rarest marbles in my collection. As mentioned above - they might not be rare in the real world but they are rare in my part of the world and in my collection. Hope you enjoy them. You may have seen one or two posted before.

There is a Christensen Agate Multi Color Swirl, a Leighton (ID by Mr. Block), a Christensen Brick. and an old Vitro Parrot,

It's a cane cut marble, so there must be more of them out there (if any others 'survived' ofcourse'!).

There's at least one more that "survived", I've seen one in Lauscha, but the condition of that one was poor, your's is much better.

I can't think of a marble that would be the rarest in my collection,but I do have a rare marble realated item.From what I understand only one hundred were made.It's in mint condition.Got it at a rock and bottle show.

Very hard to pick one. For my CAC's I would say my 7/8 six color flame and the purple sub.

For Pelt's I have to go for the 7/8" greycoat, 7/8" flaming dragon w/ aventurine, a clear zebra, A green lantern, and a green/black (green hornet). I am still looking for the hornet.

Even though the last isnt a handmade its still related. A birdcage paperweight that says China on bottom.
