    A jar full of marbles found in my family home from the late 40s or 50s... need help!

    Hello everyone! So I have a mason jar full of glass marbles that were found by me during the renovation of my family home. 4 generations of us have grown up in these rooms. I was in the process of removing carpet and I seen something through the floor boards beneath. When the board was removed , I found handfuls of old marbles sealed under the board. I had no idea how long they had been there until I found more wrapped up in a boat ad dated 1954! So now i have these marbles and I know nothing about them. Iím trying to do research in my spare time, but honestly, I havenít had much of that lately. Was hoping I could ask some of your expertise on what these marbles might be worth and maybe something about them as well. Thank you for any help you can give me!

    Nice to find family history. If you can post some general pictures, we can give you a general ID. Then, if there are ones that are more valuable, we can ask you to post some more individual pictures with 2-3 views of each marble. Last, we may knw a collector in your area that can meet with you and go over the marbles in person. Wlecome.
