Here’s my take:

Glass Target Balls: This is my favorite kind of collectible. One where there was little or no perceived value during its time of use, I mean they shot at these by the millions.  A category of collectible that the average person will not even know what the item is. I didn’t until I came across an example of one pictured on a bottle collecting site. And something that has beauty, color and story beyond its original intended use.

Collectors, Flea Marketers, and Estate Sales Shoppers Take Note:

These are the kinds of items you should always be on the lookout for…
