This is a really strong grouping of marbles here. The variety is amazing. There are many quality makers out there and looks like quite a few gems. I am not sure of the value so I will let this sale be valued by the public. These marbles range in age and condition considerably....some of them are near mint/mint and some have some fractures and everything in between. Overall some of these marbles have seen better days but some of them are pristine. I love the variety in color and design. You will find some Akro Agate Peltier Christensen Co. Slag Clay Bennington China Latticino Lutz Josephs Coat Onionskin Mica Oxblood Moss Agate Superman Sparklerand many others I cant identify. Please ask questions before offerding. If you have any questions or concerns about any particular marbles, my wife and I would be happy to respond the same day.

I use a 50x jewelers microscope with high lumen light & Loupe for grading and a digital caliper to measure. I grade each and ever marble with extreme care & concern. You can be sure that my marbles are graded accurately. I will still describe any damage as honestly & professionally as possible. I also use a digital caliper to measure the marbles, the size will always be spot on. Keep Scrolling Down For Grading Scales
9.7-9.9 (Mint +): There is no damage present, even under magnification, though the marble is not quite a perfect, ive yet to feel comfortable enough to grade a marble at a 10, so you will probably never see me grade a marble at 10.
9.3-9.6 (Mint): To the unaided eye, this describes a marble with no damage, though under magnification there may be one or two pinpricks (no larger than 1/64th), a hint of wear, an abrasion or rub spot. Marbles in this range may have "as-mades" such as blow-outs, pits or a touch spots, roll marks and minor cold roll marks.
9.0-9.2 (Mint- minus): Mint- marbles will have no dings or damage with the exception of perhaps some micro pinpricks, minor wear, a sparkle or two, very minor abrasions, a small subsurface reflection or moon, 1 to 2 small pin-pricks (no larger than 1/32) and or minor as-mades. These marbles will show no signs of being played with. I know this a little more laxed than previous years but we should allow for minor marks or as-mades and still have a marble be in the mint range.
8.7-8.9 (Near Mint +) (NM+): These marbles are almost in the Mint range, but may have a small flake or moon, fleabite or two, as well as a few sparkles, subsurface reflections/moons, minor "as-mades," and/or minor wear. Near Mint (+) marbles will have at least 3 angles from which they view Mint with the allowance of very minor wear..
8.3-8.6 (Near Mint): This range describes marbles that have the same sort of description seen on Near Mint (+) marbles, only to a higher degree. Two sides should still be viewed as Mint with very minor wear. This means, they may have a small flake (3/32nd or smaller) or moon, or two, as well as a few sparkles, subsurface reflections/moons, one or two fleabites (3/32 or smaller), minor "as-mades," and/or minor wear.
8.0-8.2 (Near Mint -): These marbles will have the same sort of damage seen on specimens in the upper Near Mint ranges but only more so. No side will be viewable as Mint, but the damage will not be deep or cover more than one quarter of the marble's surface, with the exception of overall wear.
7.7-7.9 (Good +): The difference between marbles in this range and those that are Near Mint (-) is highly subjective, though such marbles will have over one quarter of the surface covered with damage, but not more than 50%. A Good (+) marble should be able to be reconditioned (polished) without too much glass required to be removed.
7.3-7.6 (Good): Good marbles will have substantial damage, some of it deep enough so that polishing may not remove it all. Roughly half of the surface will have damage, and wear is generally heavy.
Collectible - One or more fractures, could be a piece of fragment of a marble.
