    There are a couple I would pick up for a closer look because I don't recognize them right off. However, I don't recognize anything rare.

    It's a fun vintage lot, looks like maybe from the 1940's to maybe the early 1960's. Maybe even a little from the 1930's.

    Not so much monetary value, but still pretty cool.


    The one I would definitely pick up and turn around to try to understand better looks like it might be yellow and black?? It's at the very bottom of the 3rd pic. Just to the left of center at the bottom.

    The single marble is an Akro Prize Name Corkscrew.
    Looking from picture to picture it's hard to find the same marble again because it's in a different place.
    Your idea is great, but if you put the marbles on the dish, then take 3 angles without moving the marbles you'll get exactly the answers you need.

    yes your correct on the 3 marbles, i just did some quick research. The first one i have no clue as to what it could be. It appears to be a 3/4' marble. Any guess to what it could POSSIBLY be? Thanks once again!

    The first one of your last pictures, might be an amber slag?

    Could you see some white swirling in the marble?

    It does appear to have some white swirl in it. Is this a common color/marble by chance?
