Morphy Auction

With all due respect to CAC superfans, I find this extremely rare green based guinea to look a lot like many a messed up Pelt rainbo I've sorted through without a second thought:

On the other hand there are some CACs in there I would spend unhealthy amounts of money on if I hadn't already spent that money on other things.

I don't have pics, but I have a couple of Pelt 7-Ups that have that very same dark emerald-green base. Like Mike said, they're among the more common marbles. But lovely all the same.

Technically -- according to Morphy's website -- Brian E. is not listed as one of the appraisers or subject-area specialists, but as Director of Promotions.

And look at the [Peltier] bubbles in that "green guinea" base.

This may be one of those instances when someone with a pretty narrow focus (CAC) tends to see what they expect, while others, knowledgeable in a larger arena, have a wider "comparison library" in their heads. In this case, their Pelt heads. But I'm pretty sure that even if I wern't a Pelt Head myself, the marble in question wouuld look like a Pelt MC swirl to me too. One I wouldn't mind having. But not at CAC prices! It'll be interesting to see how the bidding goes on it.

Here is the reply I received from Brian Estepp:

I had Morphys send marble to me to take another look. It is Christensen green guinea with two curved pinch lines.I am having them reshoot the photos to show the spotting of the colors that are not seen and state the as made stretched surface blowout I did not see the first time looking at it.
