    I found these in the forest by my house. It was a doctor's residence in the 1850's. I sat on a log and seen a flash on the forest floor from the sun. I walked over and moved the leaves away and began looking for a flat spot. I found alot of glass bottles too so far.

      Hi, Great find! There appears to be 2 fried marbles (the cracked like ones). I am not sure if the others are just hazy in the photo or they are dirty. The green one looks like it is from the Alley Agate Company. And I am unsure about the clear one up front that appears to have reflected a flash from the camera in it. It could be a cats eye. Lucky find!

      Is that a magnifiying glass that the marbles are in? I have one just like it. They work well for reading small print.....

      When I was a young lad we played a lot of marbles,every young boy had his favorite shooter.We very seldomn played for "keeps",usually the older guys were the ones who would want to play "keepers".Every young lad had a pocket knife and we would draw a good size circle and shoot some marbles and play mumple peg with the knives.Most of the marbles,to my knowledge,was made in the U.S of A. not sure if that is true today.
