Probably really depends on how old and what it is. Some of the really early glass would be worth more than something still in production. They do have Color Archives on their site, no prices.

The only one I know of that got much of a premium is original Terra. Not sure if it still does.

For a little while I would see interest in original Olympic Rain, but not lately.

I'd be interested if you have any Triton.

Have you tried shopping for those names online to see if someone else has some for sale?

It would give you some idea of the current market for it.

Some test batches might be worth more than production colors. A list would help us help you.

Some of those are in the archive, some not, most look like 2007 vintage.

If you figure out a price, I'm interested in

Kronos odd K-66 (10 rods
C - 76 odd. ( 10
N - 56 odd. ( 15
H - 77 odd. ( 9
Pandora R-19 ( 7

But I could be talked into taking them all.

Just my opinion, but I think the best way to determine current value is to post your glass on a FB auction site.

Whatever people will pay is the current value.

What Facebook auction site is there for glass stuff? I know all of the glass I have is at an average price of $100.00 per pound. Was just wondering if some of it was now at a higher value.

Thanks

I'll let you know when I'm ready to sell and a price. At this point I'm thinking to sell all to one person.

Sometimes you just have to do the research.

Double Helix test batches are going for $80/lb except for the first year at Frantz Bash (many of what you have are from the first year) when it was $40/lb. Many of the sought-after test batches actually became regular production colors so I don't think the prices have gone beyond the regular $80/lb.

Terra and Olympia Rain did go higher at one point but now they are available again on DH site.

Thanks Haley
I was wrong in my thought it was at 100 per lb. I found some of my rods are marked with individual prices i paid. i evidently had marked some when i bought them with what i had acually paid at that time.
