    Doesn't look terribly promising! David

    Well being that we found ALL of these in about a 12 hour time frame, we think it looks very promising!

    Completely willing to revise my estimate. How 'bout a series of 3 or 4 sharply focused close-ups. David

    I really did shoot from the hip with this one. Am fully willing to give it my best shot with some pics that allow IDing assuming that might be an interest. David

    Re: Do you love to hunt for vintage marbles?

    Possibly you could provide some clarification..... Is this some sort of a scavenger hunt with a time element you've got going on here? Just curious.

    Also Your 1st Post was on 11/7 and you show marbles you've found. But then in your 6th Post which was on 11/11 you show a group of marbles that you say you got the day before(11/10 one would assume) but they contain at least three marbles from the ones you had in your 1st Post. Like what's up with that?

    Really wasn't attempting to put a flame to your feet. Just noticed an inconsistency. David

    Wierd random-looking bunch -- not like they might have all come from a particular factory site . . .

    Re: Do you love to hunt for vintage marbles?

    This thread reminded me of when I worked at a major paint factory in the 70's. One of the warehouse guys accidentally knocked over a 55 gallon barrel in the warehouse, and spilled thousands of marbles, that took yrs. to find and clean up. I had assumed they would be the industrial type that are usually in spray paint cans, small clearies. But these were beautiful 5/8", what I now think were Marble King rainbows. There may have been some Akro corkscrews, and maybe some other makes and sizes too. At the time, I wasn't as interested in marbles as I am now. We would find them from time to time. Eventually they got rid of them all, around a dozen barrels full. I asked about them, and was told they went to a land fill. Someday, someone is going to stumble upon a lifetime supply.
