    Looks to be a good mix of machine made marbles. Nice collection! It would help if you separate like marbles in groups of 10 maybe and then post pics. Its hard to tell what all is there in this big of a group. Example (I bought a group of 40 or so machine made marbles and 2 ghm marbles for $30 at auction . I have 1 machine made(Christensen Agate Oxblood swirl) out of the lot selling for $27) Could be some good ones in there.

    Thank you so much for your reply! This is really a neat hobby. I do not currently have them in my possession. If you had to guess and I’m sure it’s hard without more detail, what would you estimate their value at? 10? 20? 100? I have no idea

    The clear based catseyes are generally considered newer/more common = less expensive. Condition will play a huge factor in terms of "value" for collectors. Hard to tell how many marbles all together, but there usually tends to be a couple in a group that make up the majority of the overall value. Handle with care!

    Id pay $20-$30. Maybe more if I saw more of what was there to put a better value on them as a lot.

    Based on the pics it's more like a 'pig in a poke' scenario. $20-30 could be a fair estimate, but there is a possibility a couple individual marbles in that group could be worth $20-30 (each) on their own. Better pics and description of condition will help narrow it from there, since some collectors would consider a $20-30 marble virtually worthless if there are any condition issues.
