    Insert witty unique title for "I found some marbles, are they valuable?" here.

    Hello I'm obviously new to marbles. I have found these in a grate in an old house. Was hopeful that someone could give me information on them. Any help is appreciated.

    It is tough to ID with just one view. Left one is transparent swirl (machiine made) - similar ones from various companies. 2nd two can't quite tell - little bit of a cat's-eye look but other views would help. Third is foreign cage style cat's-eye and last two can't tell from one view. All common types - nickel, dime.

    Ok thank you for the reply. I will take some more pics and post them. I do have one question, the first one, white transparent, you say it looks machine made however this marble is completely misshapen as though it were made by hand. Can that happen to machine made marbles? It may be the angle of the picture as well so I will take more shots of that one too.

    Machine made marbles can be misshapen - hit the rollers and cool too quickly - cold roll marks, flat sides, egg (or football) shaped, etc.
