I've seen lots of "advertising marbles." They seem very common and
amazingly the paint is always in very good condition.

Some of these fakes can be fun for a laugh if you can get one on the
cheap. Being an L&N/NC&StL nut, I finally got one of the Civil War era
Western & Atlantic RR Police Badges. Sadly, I've seen people pay hundreds
of dollars for these. 

Railroadiana tip > Q. How do you tell if a railroad police department
badge is a fake? A. It's for sale. 

I saw someone on an email list who new the only agent on an interurban
who was ever issued a badge, which the agent still has. He later saw two
badges for that road for sale! Get the picture?

On a happier ebay note, I just left a feedback for one of my latest
purchases. Yesterday I received a copy of "The Fallen Colossus." I'd set
the personal shopper to search for this one and eventually I got one.
Luckily for me, I was the only bidder.
