      Since no one has posted a comment on these marbles, here is my two cents. First of all, I collected marbles for a couple of years a few years ago and added a few marble books to my library but am absolutely not an expert or experienced collector. I have both of the bags shown in the post and a few other different bags of advertising marbles. Some of them look old and some look new. I paid under $10 each from various sources for all of these bags of advertising marbles and my assumption when I bought most of them was that they were probably either reproductions or just creations of bags that never really existed before. I bought them because the marbles looked like good marbles. I have a few bags of advertising marbles or marbles labeled by marble makers like Marble King and Peltier which I think are genuine, over 40 or 50 years old and the staples on the bags of all of them are rusty, bags are worn and dirty and the paper labels show a lot of wear and soiling comparable to the condition of the bags. So my comment is to look for actual signs of age and handling on the bags, paper labels and staples.. My assumption was, and is, that two I have that are like the ones shown in the post are modern reproductions as the wear and soiling was not consistent. The bags look really dirty but the paper and staples are in really good shape. It was not important enough to me to pursue finding out more about them so I can't do more than assume.

      Guessing there are probably some on line forums for marble collectors where you could post these and get some authoritative opinions. A quick Google search turned up at least one:

      https://marbleconnection.com/

      I'm sure there are other marble forums...
