Final Bid
  "PATENT / APLD / FOR." (Sure Break), Target Ball, America, 1875 - 1900. Honey amber, octagonal body with alternating square and diamond-shaped panels, four concave diamond-shaped panels around the shoulders and base, 2-piece mold, rough sheared mouth, 2 ½" wide, perfect! There are actually three different "Sure Break" mold variations (all three represented in this collection). However, this mold variant of the Sure Break ball is believed to be unique. An exceptional target ball.  
10 $ 5,000
 "PATENT APPLIED FOR" Hobnail Pattern Target Ball, America, 1875 - 1900. Golden amber, overall hobnail pattern, 3-piece mold, rough sheared mouth, dia. 2 5/8", near mint; (just a tiny pinhead-size flake on one of the hobnails, and a little likely washable interior residue, otherwise perfect). Extremely rare, one of only two known examples. At a Heckler Auction, Ralph passed a hat trying to raise money to buy this ball!  
12 $ 2,100
  Unembossed, 2-Piece Mold Target Ball, America, 1875 - 1900. Medium golden amber, 2-piece mold, rough sheared mouth, dia. 2 5/8", perfect. A classic American target ball with a twist, this example being blown in a 2-piece, rather than a 3-piece mold. Nice character with some bubbles and crudity to the glass.  
7 $ 180
  Embossed Dots on Shoulder, Target Ball, America, 1875 - 1900. Beautiful, bright golden, almost a honey coloration, pattern with (6) large embossed dots on the shoulder, 3-piece mold, rough sheared mouth, dia. 2 5/8", perfect. Ralph included in his notes that this is a very uncommon, scarce mold. In addition, beautiful color, and with some nice whittling and character to the glass.  
20 $ 425
