Ready to Learn! ID Help please!

Recommended Posts

New member, I like to try to Id my marbles as much as possible without help, then ask opinions. So I will be posting pics of 5 at a time every few days to see what you guys think about the marbles I love even if they are imperials made last week, I picked these to be my babies to start off my new hobby!


I have read hours for weeks, searched and joined everything I can, I love that there is so much to know!


So here is my first lot of 5! Using Imgur as my camera pics are too large.

1: 21/32 I am thinking Peltier, please give it a official name!

2: 22/32 Master or Akro? Or ripoff? Help!

3: 1 1/32 Lrge marble seems old, is that a CAC Turkey Swirl? Found this one at dump site! Love it no matter what

4: 31/32 I just got this in a jar that I know is old group. Has a faint horse hair of red, is it a horsehair ox? Base is Translucent, Why is this so hard folks!

5: 25/32 Akro Corkscrew? Or Jabo? or other? I have been calling it Akro


Thanks in advance and hope this is of no bother!

Hi there.


#1 _might_ be Peltier.  Also might be Marble King.  Need a better idea of how many ribbons there are and how they connect at the seams.

#2 is tricky.  I'll go Master or Imperial. 

#3, the first view looks to have a nice tail in it.  So I'm figuring the 2nd view is a "nine", rather than a turkey head. I'm going to say M.F. Christensen slag, rather than Christensen Agate. 

#4.   In spite of your sureness that this was with an old group, it looks totally Jabo to me. 

#5.  So that red ribbon corks around the marble?  More views could help but I'm leaning Akro for now based on the peek at the seam in the first view.

Today I took #3 to a expert in hand mades and transitionals. I learned that #3 in this picture is a very rare Navarre Marble which makes sense seeings I live two towns over! He valued it at 100 - 125 bucks woot! paid 2 dollars !
