Hi All
My Grandson Joey collects marbles with me. I gave him some marbles for Christmas and he gave me this marble.

It was a real surprise and I think pretty darn cool. Hope you all had a great Christmas and I wish you all a very healthy & happy 2013. Best regards. Paul :)

That's odd , why would masons make a presentation marble? Is it really a marble or was it made for some other purpose?

Maybe it is a glass eye for the leader. You saw the gangs of New York right? [:D]

Rick you crack me up buddy!!! lol

Matt I think the marble was simply made to be a gift. I don't know where my Daughter & Grandson found it but I like it.

Thanks for checking out my post. Paul :)

At least I'm a clown with class right? [;)]

Paul when you find out what that thing was actually used for let us know, I won't be able to sleep with visions of glass eyes in my head.[:D]
