      I found several of these while digging in my yard a few years ago. I think they were once pretty common.

      How did they get the different colors I wonder?

      The fly in this ointment is that Atlanta did not exist until 1847 and there was nothing there before 1836.

      Thanks everyone for stopping by and looking and loving! I really appreciate all the information provided. I think the general consensus is that they are real marbles and that they are old. I had never seen any until yesterday and for $7.00 I thought why not. Appreciate you all very much,Ralph
