richsantaclaus Posted June 8, 2011 Report Share Posted June 8, 2011 Being in the collecting of vintage marbles for just over a year now, I wonder what our group thinks about a person being referred to as an expert in the marble collecting world. Of course, not all marbles lend themselves to be named and, of course, mistakes will certainly happen - after all, we are human...lol. Many things cross my mind thinking of a definition of an expert vintage marble collector: 1) The number of years the person has been collecting vintage marbles 2) The number of years spent studying the history of the marbles or having a great deal of knowledge about, or skill, training, or experience in, a collecting vintage marbles 3) Has the person been at the site where the marbles were made (like at a dig) 4) Has the person seen a marble making machine and knows the ins-and-outs of the workings thereof 5) Is this person others go to for a final question I am wondering how you feel about this question. Do you have other things you look for that person you'd call an expert? I look forward to a positive input from the members of our group and I hope to learn from your experiences to make my own journey an intelligent one to find that special marble I just MUST have...lol Thanks Rich Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
