Beautiful example. measures 5/8" m-, due to a small as-made touch at a seam and an as-made pop, tried to show. also a few of those micro meltedbubbles. super teeny.wet surface! very right colors!

Grading is subject to everyone's opinion. And yes, everybody has one. However, if you are offerding on my marbles, you are agreeing to my opinion on grading.
First... I do not grade with a 30X loupe. These were made as toys, not tiffanyart glass.
Many marbles will have factory defects and flaws, some companies more than others simply because of the glass or process used in manufacture.
Grading by numbers. I personally hate the numbers game, but many rely on it for grading info.
10. Not sure there is a perfect 10 marble. As close as I would get to this is 'dead mint'. Meaning it is as perfect as the day it was made.
9.8 looks free of any pocket wear, or play damage, but could still have an as-made little glass flaw, or melted bubble pops, slight cold roll etc.
9.6 to 9.7. Looks fantastic, wet surface, but could have a minute pin prick, or a pin tip sparkle or two (as-made or not). or a very slight roller mark, etc.
9.2 to 9.5 Again, looks great in hand, but could have a tiny flea or two, a little pocket wear, maybe a really tiny subsurface crescent or two., as-made roller scuff etc. General speaking a NM+ to M-.
9.0 I consider this grade a NM to NM+, meaning the marble is still shiny, but will have some pocket wear, or some play damage somewhere, or a combination, yet still very displayable and collectible.
I try not to list anything reconditioned or below a 9.0 unless it is a rare example, or simply a consignors request to list, and I will show and describe the issues.
