    Good possibility I'd say but . . . are there lots of tiny bubbles in the glass? That would be a little unusual for JABO, I think. And the center one looks Vitro to me so . . . maybe more pics? What size are they?

    there are tiny bubbles in the green..... they are slightly smaller than the rest of my 'standard' size mibs..... and they have that 'buttcrack' that my other jabos have...... and i cant say for sure, but I believe there were a handful of other presumebly Jabo marbles in the mixed lot.

    I've got some marbles that are a lot like what you describe -- somewhere between Vitro Agate "Horseshoe" style, kind of an open "U" shape, and the "Buttcrack" that you see on the Jabo classics. Somewhere I have saved a set of 3 marbles that pretty clearly look like there is a transition where the same combo of glass my have an identifiable Vitro pattern, through something that looks like it's tending towards Jabo and then a very identifiable Jabo marble in very simliar looking combination of glass.

    My guess is that these really must have been made during that time period of the Vitro-to-Jabo company transition.

    I'd lean towards Jabo. While they did have some patterns similar to this in Anacortes, they look more Jabo. Here's a bag of Jabos from 1995 time frame (front and back) and the reverse of the Anacortes 72+3 bag for comparison.

    May be an odd one in there but look like Jabos to me.
