    If they are original and not a reproduction, and you get two for one money, the price seems very reasonable.

    Recomend contacting Phill Murray at Whiteflyer he is very knowledgeable in the history of targets to include glass balls.

    Target glass blown ELLIOTT SPITZER
    I think I heard on the news that his cost $5500.00. Now the target balls at auction for $250.00 would be a bargain. HAHAHA. The govern of New York could have bought a few extras! ridg300

    Balls said the Queen if I had two I would be King and of course the King laughed not because he wanted two but because he had two. You guys started it.

    In the past we used glass cutters to cut the bottom sections ( bottom 3/4" or so ) off of 1 liter glass bottles and the bottom of 750 ml glass bottles and then used that elmers glue that expands with water ... filled some with water too ! They did not fly to well ( as you can imagine ) and took a LONG time to make, but we managed to make up about 75 or so ... best part is when they fell in the field if they were not hit you could re-use them ! best part was when you would get one that would 'keyhole' through the air ! what a sound it would make ...
    Oh, be sure to wear glasses as about 10% broke when the arm tried to launch them ... used a Trius trap not sure the model #

    Good luck
