THE STORY ON GOLDEN REBELS

OVER THE YEARS SINCE I AND MY CIRCLE OF MARBLE FRIENDS FIRST HEARD OF A PELTIER GOLDEN REBEL I HAVE BEEN FORTUNATE TO FIND QUITE A FEW OF THESE EXTREMELY RARE MARBLES. THE LARGER ONES USUALLY USED AND BEAT AS "SHOOTERS". THE SMALLER 5/8" WERE OFTEN IN VERY NICE CONDITION AND ITS YELLOW GLASS DARKER (THINK SCHOOLBUS) YELLOW WHILE THE LARGER 23/32 TO AS BIG AS 7/8 WERE A LIGHTER LEMON YELLOW. WE KNOW THAT OVER THE YEARS ALL THE US MAKERS STARTED MAKING SMALLER MARBLES TO REDUCE PRICES TO COMPETE WITH THE FLOW OF JAPANESE AND MEXICAN MARBLES. THE COLOR DIFFERENCE WAS ALWAYS THE SAME AND WE ALL BEGAN TO BELIEVE THAT THE LEMON "LARGE" PROBABLY IS EARLIER WHILE THE SCHOOLBUS YELLOW WAS ROUND TWO. I HAVE TALKED WITH SERIOUS COLLECTORS ON THIS VERY SUBJECT AND ALL SEEM IN AGREEMENT. MANY FEEL THAT THERE WAS ONLY ONE RUN (DAY, WEEK -WHO KNOWS) OF EACH OF THESE TYPES WITH PERHAPS A FEW YEARS IN BETWEEN. I PERSONALLY HAVE NEVER SEEN A DARK YELLOW SHOOTER OR A LEMON YELLOW IN 5/8". TAKE A LOOK AT MIBCOLLECTORS DOT COM FOR A PERFECT PICTORAL ON THIS SUBJECT.

THIS 5/8 PELTIER GOLDEN REBEL IS PERFECTLY AS-MADE WET MINT. THE ADVENTURINE IS IN THE BLACK GLASS AND CAN BE SEEN EVEN IN PHOTOS (CHECK LAST ONE). THE RED IN THIS ONE IS STRIATED JUST LIKE AKROS FAMOUS OXbloodS. STORY GOES THEY SUPERHEATED GLASS TO CREATE THAT STRIATION PERHAPS PELTIER GOT THESE A LITTLE HOT. MAKES THIS ONE A LITTLE BIT MORE SPECIAL IN MY OPINION. LIKE I SAID I HAVE HAD SOME SUPER CLEAN GOLDEN REBELS IN THIS SIZE BUT NONE CLEANER OR WETTER THAN THIS LITTLE HONEY.

I HAVE BEEN SERIOUSLY INVOLVED WITH MARBLE COLLECTING FOR 25 YEARS. I DON'T KNOW EVERYTHING NOR DO I KNOW ANYONE WHO DOES BUT I BACK MY STATEMENTS, IDEAS, AND SALES 100%. I DON'T DO THIS JUST TO MAKE MONEY- I LOVE THE MARBLE COLLECTING HOBBY. THIS MARBLE IS A CONSIGNMENT BUT IT DOES MEET MY STANDARDS. IF YOU HAVE MARBLES YOU WANT TO CONSIGN I WOULD BE HAPPY TO LIST THEM FOR YOU.

IN REGARD TO "GRADING"-- I HAVE BEEN INVOLVED WITH MARBLES FOR A VERY LONG TIME AND FEEL I KNOW "MINT" FROM NEAR MINT ETC. WHILE I ALWAYS USE A LOOP TO LOOK AT EVERY MARBLE I LIST WHEN IT COMES TO ASSIGNING NUMBER VALUES TO THESE LITTLE ROUND ORBS I LOVE SO MUCH, WELL, I WILL LEAVE THAT TO OTHERS. I ONLY LIST INDIVIDUAL MARBLES THAT ARE MINT OR NEAR MINT (ONE SM DING MAX.) SINCE I OFFER 100% RETURNS YOU CAN BUY WITH CONFIDENCE AND RETURN A MARBLE WITHOUT A REASON ANYTIME YOU ARE NOT HAPPY WITH PURCHASE AND RECEIVE A FULL REFUND OF PURCHASE PRICE! YOUR ONLY INVESTMENT WILL BE RETURN POSTAGE WITH OUR REUSABLE (IF OPENED CAREFULLY) PACKAGING AND A NEW ADDRESS LABEL. I TRY TO BE VERY ACCURATE WITH DESCRIPTIONS AND MY response BEARS THAT OUT.

HERE IS WHAT I DO: I TRY TO FIND JARS, CANS, CIGAR BOXES FULL OF OLD UNSORTED MARBLES IN THE HANDS OF NON-COLLECTORS WHEN- EVER AND WHEREVER I CAN. I WORK HARD AT THAT AND SELDOM BUY SEPARATE PREVIOUSLY COLLECTED MARBLES. SO IF YOU LIKE "BARN FRESH" PUT ME ON YOUR FAVORITE SELLERS LIST. THIS IS HOW I SORT WHAT I FIND. I START ONE MARBLE AT A TIME AND PUT THEM IN THESE GROUPS:

GROUP 1 -IDENTIFIABLE, COLLECTIBLE MINT -NO DINGS, CHIPS, OR WEAR OR DAMAGE OF ANY KIND. MINT IS MINT!

GROUP 2 -NEAR MINT "DINGS" - ONE DING OK

GROUP 3 -GOOD - ANYTHING MORE THAN ONE DING -NO HITS , NO FRACS, OR MISSING GLASS

GROUP 4 -ROUGHS -ANYTHING WORSE THAN GROUP 3 -HITS, CRACKS, WEAR, MISSING GLASS,

GROUP 5 - COMMON MARBLES: GAMES, LOW END IMPORT, COMMON CATEYES ETC BUT THEY MUST BE "CLEAN" NO DAMAGE TO NAKED EYE.

THEN I SORT GROUP ONE AND TWO INTO "MAKER" GROUPS AND THAT IS ALL I SELL AS INDIVIDUAL COLLECTIBLE MARBLES AND IF IT HAS THAT ONE DING IT WILL BE STATED "NEAR MINT" NOT MINT. IF I LIST A GROUP OF MARBLES THE ENTIRE GROUPWILL BE FROM JUST ONEOF THE ABOVE GROUPS AND I WILL MARK THAT CLEARLY IN THE LISTING. BUYING GROUPS WITH SOME MINT, SOME NEAR MINT OR GOOD CONDITIONS ETC IS LIKE RUSSIAN ROULETTE. BUYER WOULD HAVE TO BE CLAIRVOYANT TO KNOW WHAT TO BUY AND I AM SICK OF SEEING THAT HERE ON . CONDITION IS EVERYTHING IN ANTIQUES AND COLLECTIBLES! HOWEVER,ASMADE FEATURES ARE NOT PART OF CONDITION; THEY ARE "ASMADES".

THESE MARBLES ARE NOT TOYS THEY ARE SOLD AS COLLECTIBLES AND SHOULD NOT BE IN THE HANDS OF SMALL CHILDREN, COULD BE HARMFUL IF SWALLOWED
