    Are These Marbles Vintage?

    Hi,
    I'm new to this forum. I picked up a bag on the bottom of a Goodwill Outlet bin today and a bunch of marbles fell out. They are all different colors, very few are clear and most of them have a rough spot on them but oddly they are not chips. The picture does not do them justice and the patterns are pretty cool.

    Looking for help as I'm wondering if these are vintage and if any have potential value for resale.

    Appreciate any
    Thank you

    From that mass photo - they all/most all appear vintage.

    I recommend that you take smaller group photos with 6-9 marbles per photo with emphasis on good lighting (that pic is well lit) AND focus. Focus is important.

    With those better views we can help your sort - and possible with some approximate grading.

    Condition is very important and quickly affect desirability and value.

    Thanks Alan! I will take smaller group photos with an overhead LED light, then post them later today or tomorrow.

    Have a great Memorial Day weekend!

    Hi,
    I took new pictures in groups of 6 each and I hope the lighting and focus is good enough for you to view. There are 12 marbles that are not included because the pictures didn't come out good and I already put them back in the bag so I don't know which ones they are. Bummer.

    If anyone has time to take a look and let me know your thoughts I would greatly appreciate it.

    There will be multiple posts because I got an error that said I can only have 5 files per post.
    2nd bummer.

    Thank you
    Sharon

    Please help. Apparently I reached my maximum kb's to upload. Is there a way to delete my picture in the file manager so I can upload more?

    I feel like a dorkette!

    Thanks

    Those look nice, Sharon! I don't recognize them to be able to tell where they're from, sadly.
