Glad to see this on the forum. I picked up a bunch of marbles (over 600) and here are a few of the nicer looking ones.

I would like to know if any of them have any value... Thanks, Anthony

Pretty good. #5 is really dark hard to make out. Swirls are not my thing , but that #7 has a kinda Christensen look to it ya think?

Yes ,it has that look now that you mention it ,but have to admit the CAC (Cristensen )and most Champion swirls give me fits figuring them out ,guess i have not seen enough of them yet.[:)]

Thanks for the replies..

the amber slag is 7/8 the red slag is 13/16 the dark one is 3/4 all the rest are close are 9/16 or 5/8 I want to sell them, how much do you think they are worth?

I'd say that most are in 9.5 condition with no moons. Some have tiny hit marks while others don't

If anyone is interested... make me an offer.

I know for me personally I would spend 10-20 bucks on Slags like the Red depending on the coloration and pattern of glass. I collect the Reds , but it'd have to have a pretty awesome look for me to move on it. The amber Slag is a 10-20 dollar marble too. It's a little larger , but a more common color. The second marble at the top is a Akro cork and is an older color. Keep in mind even Fleabites take away value especially on fairly common marbles.
