2018 9   Special stones

Richter produced blocks not only for children, but for adult collectors also. There were special shapes that could only be procured by direct order from the factory. Many boxes look nice in every collection. It is an extra joy if special ones are among them.
Building at a large scale requires lots of stones. A handful of special stones look nice among a large bunch of stones. A few rare stones can add extra value to a design's aesthetic merit, if used in the proper place. Many of these can grant really special building options.
What value do these stones have? Each builder / collector should decide for himself.
Reason for a shape being special:
- known shape, but unusual color, in which the stone wasn't contained in any set
- known shape, usual color, but unusual thickness (like 3/4 units)
- a shape which wasn't contained in any color in any set
Do you recognize the stones? Solutions at the bottom.
