Attention: People sending marbles for appraisals!
Please have the common courtesy to send that exact amount of postage
inside of the box with the marbles. NOT A PENNY MORE.
Use a bank, postal money order or cash. I get 20 to 30 boxes per week
without any money for return postage. This can get expensive.
I do not always buy your marbles, weather you may think they are made
of gold or not. Please document your marbles by taking pictures!
Make exact counts and make sure they are individually wrapped.
Also please use clean new boxes! I get many boxes filled with cat and
dog hair and mice excrement. This is rude to say the least.
Please be thoughtful and considerate of MY home and environment and make
sure we are clean, clean clean! If you plan on sending, call me first to let me know.
THE FIRST STEP IS TO SEND SOME PICTURES, UP CLOSE, IN FOCUS, AND UNDER A BRIGHT LIGHT. PUT THE MARBLES IN STRAIGHT HORIZONTAL LINES, AND PLACE A RULER AT THE BOTTOM, SO I CAN REFER TO ANY CERTAIN MARBLE. YOU MAY SEND PICTURES BY JPEG FORMAT, OR SNAIL MAIL IF YOU DON'T HAVE A DIGITAL CAMERA. ANY CAMERA WILL WORK, AS LONG AS THE PICTURES ARE GOOD, AS STATED ABOVE.
AFTER VIEWING YOUR PICTURES, I WILL DETERMINE TO CONTINUE (OR NOT), IF YOUR MARBLES (OR SOME OF THEM) ARE IN FACT COLLECTIBLE.
WHAT DETERMINES COLLECTABILITY IS THE RARITY AND CONDITION. THEN, IF YOU ARE INTERESTED, WE CAN DISCUSS GETTING YOU A FREE E-MAIL APPRAISAL (WHICH WOULD BE A BALL PARK FIGURE), OR A PROFESSIONAL WRITTEN APPRAISAL.
FOR A PROFESSIONAL WRITTEN MARBLE APPRAISAL, I CHARGE ONLY ONE DOLLAR PER MARBLE. FOR A LARGE VOLUME OF MARBLES I WILL GIVE A DISCOUNT. MARBLES THAT ARE WORTH TEN DOLLARS OR MORE WILL BE IN THE WRITTEN APPRAISAL. MARBLES WORTH LESS WILL BE BAGGED BY BULK, ACCORDING TO THEIR VALUE. THERE IS NO CHARGE FOR THIS SEPARATING. IF THE APPRAISAL FEE IS NOT IN YOUR BUDGET, WE CAN TAKE THE FEE OUT IN TRADE FOR MARBLES.
FOR EITHER E-MAIL OR WRITTEN APPRAISALS, I ASK IN RETURN TO HAVE FIRST PICK, IF YOU DECIDE TO SELL. I THINK THIS IS FAIR; IF YOU DON'T THINK SO, LET ME KNOW.
I HAVE BEEN DEALING WITH MARBLES FOR OVER 15 YEARS, AND HAVE MANY REFERENCES AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST.
FINDER FEE TO ANYONE WHO SEND ME A SUCCESSFUL MARBLE TRANSACTION. I ASK YOU PAY FOR SHIPPING AND HANDLING AND INSURANCE.
E-MAIL ME FOR SPECIFIC PACKING INSTRUCTIONS.
GOOD LUCK, I HOPE YOU HAVE SOME HIDDEN TREASURES!
