Mostly Pix - Vacor

Recommended Posts

Actually, Bumblebee just sorta fill this thread up when he found this link:

Liste des billes MEGA et VACOR

But if anyone else wants to play .... especially with close-ups and specially pretty ones, and interesting variations, and interesting features ... welcome. :)

This is all Greek to me! :lol:

But that's good. Looks like billes is marbles in French.

Just looked that up, and I guess it works for beads as well.

We've already seen billetes in Vacor ads, although there've

been other words at times as well. Guessing that French-speaking

people have others as well.

I think words for 'marbles' are pretty limited in modern English.

Although the posts about 'traditional' marble-related language

have been interesting and a lot of fun!

I've always liked Vacors, although I understand why some people don't at times.

They've made quite a few nice ones, and I sometimes appreciate how they came

up with an entirely new affordable 'grading system term'.

In my words, the "Imperfect Wet Mint"! :)

Probably my favorite Vacors are the Sunsets. Some older pix I ran across tonight.

One of Vacors newest. They are called Seahorse. Being only the 3rd type Vacor that has prompted a purchase, I figured I better share. Arguably the nicest of the new Vacor.

I'm glad you're embracing them!  I could see Alley collectors going the other way.  :o

Love my Alley, but I think there is some room to squeeze in a random swirl here and there. I don't see there being any confusion over these and they seem to be a slight departure from the norm in Vacor. =}

Have to say, the last one there slightly reminds me of CAC.

Those are pretty great, thanks a lot for posting them! The last one looks sorta peltierish to me.

There some Vacors that I can appreciate for their beauty as well, the transparent red one is 1" and I'm really diggin the simplicity of it, I just ignore the orange peel surface :)

I used to collect owls when I was a kid.  Never thought until just now about how I should add this to my old collection.
