Ok maybe i'm a little bored....


Recommended Posts

but how about marbles you have that you wish were in better shape, like round at least.  There is a topic about marbles you wish you still had. But I'm talking about mibs that you have that are too bad to even be place holders. I have some pretty chewed up marbles, but this one is the top of my junk pile. In nice condition it would a cornerstone of my collection, but this 17/32nds green brick has an actual corner. Photos don't do justice to the tragedy that is this marble. Thanks

That is a beautiful marble!  I've never even seen one of those "in hand".  Here's one (nothing fancy like yours) that, as I rolled some marbles around in a tray, I got all excited over until I gave it a roll and saw the chip. My heart dropped for a minute.  But, I will hold on to it for a while because I might be able to strategically display it on a shelf or something... Great topic, btw!  IMG_4611.thumb.jpg.6c2cb7f45961eec91f8762346645f82f.jpg

I really don't like seeing damage on a marble unless it is an old Agate shooter. So they all go into the box that gets thrown out at the playground, Kids have found some really nice marbles! But I am a picky old fart. I lied, there are a couple old German Handmades around here with a little damage

This one has a sizable chip in it -- which you get a glimpse of at the bottom of this view.  But if it were in better shape I probably wouldn't have been able to get it.  And from most angles there's no heartbreak at all.
