    New guy with mystery marbles - Akro Popeye Corkscrews?

    I recently acquired a bunch of marbles and am slowly trying to educate myself on this wide-ranging subject!

    Two types of marbles have stumped me. They both have a translucent green base with corkscrews (I think) of three different colors. The first type is dark orange, light blue and white, and the second is yellow, light blue and white.

    I thought they might be Popeye corkscrews but the base is greenish not clear. Anyone recognize these?

    (Also interested in id'ing the blue/white one at the end)

    Kind of hard to tell with all the reflections. Try laying the marble on cotton tshirt type material(grey or light blue is the best) and try taking pics with flash.
