    Vintage Marbles - help!

    I was recently given this jar of marbles that were my grandfather's as a child and are believed to be from the 1930s. I've attached pictures of some of them. Is there any chance any of them might be worth anything? I really don't have any idea where to start. Is there somewhere I should take them to find out if there is a chance that they are?

    All appear vintage, but need pictures in smaller groups and closer. Especially the two at top right in first photo. They almost appear to be Akro Silver Oxbloods. If they are and are in decent shape, they have quite a bit of value.

    Agree with Jerry and have a couple different views of the marbles also. Maybe group of 5 with three pics of different views - in same order.

    Okay! Here's some pictures including those two from the top right and 8 others I thought looked similar-ish.

    Ok, still going with Akro Silver Oxbloods for the two at top left. Again, depending on condition, we're talking about $40-50 a piece. Those prices are for mint or close to mint. Any damage brings down the value. Do a google search for "Silver Oxblood" and compare photos to what you've got.

    That definitely looks like what they are when I'm comparing them to others. Thanks for your help!

    They don't all look completely round like maybe some are dug marbles. I love the oxbloods.
