What does US$18,400 get you in marble collecting? Well, at this Morphy Auction in May 2008 it got someone this fantastically rare and beautiful original 100-ct box of Christensen Agate Co. marbles.
These beauties were in wet-mint condition and included some very nice flame swirls. Not to mention they're all stuffed in a full original box. I'd like to know just what the box is worth without the marbles!
It's hard to put a price on the beauty, rarity and history represented by thisÂ set, but someone did, and I reckon over the long run it's worth much more than $184 per marble.
No doubt just the experience of opening and handling these is just about priceless for any marble collector.
