Wow, loving the pics, especially the MFCs from the building and the paper Bill posted. Great stuff!

 

Akro is the go-to folder for oxbloods, so I'll start there.

Before anyone asks, no I wasn't moving, the camera was on a tripod with a remote, the ox in this mib looks blurry, like it's in motion for some reason. I thought it was me or the camera until I got my loupe out, this being the reason the oxblood looks blurry in both pix.

Alan - nice cullet! You even have the opaque oxblood orange phase in the first piece. I know of two marbles made of the solid orange phase both attributed to MFC.

Here is the one that I have alway called an Orange Brick.

I am glad that film is no longer used, I shot about 300 images to get these. I used to shoot a lot of Kodachrome using a macro lense back in the 70's. Digital is a whole new world for me. I will do better in the months ahead but these are my best for now.

I cannot see having an oxblood post with showing these to you all.

Here are four of Brian Grahams that I just love.

The one with the blue-ish clear tint is my favorite of all. If he figures out this orange oxblood thing, I will be there for sure to add a few to my collection. Once again-I took a lot of shots to get these.  Sunlight helps for sure. I will get better. Photograpy is a lot cheaper that it used to be--just takes time to recognoiter.

You're doing good! In general you'll have better luck with the mibs on a non-reflective surface.

Thank Ric,

 I used to know better and re-learning keeps the gray matter alive and kicking for sure. When I stopped my photo hobby due to raising a family and making money go where it should, digital was scoffed at for lack of any resolution compared to film---lol here we are! Any other tips will be appreciated. I don't do smart phones and this new camera is like learning a new OS. Technology is passing me up no doubt and some of it can pass for sure. I will conquer this one though--one image at a time.

Image--on!!

Love the ones with both AV and ox. 

Those white and black ones are some of my favorite Heatons. I didn't find many of those during the digs but some people did.

Here's one with both AV and ox. i have some better ones but haven't taken pics of them.
