I got VERY lucky with buying a small lot of tin litho toys from an estate, they were not a problem. I have a chance to buy a small group of marbles as well but they are like rocket science to me. I don't even know if they are old ones let alone good. Anybody here care to offer me some advice on the lot?

I don't know about marbles either but they are pretty!! I really like the toys[:D] That cowboy and horse is awesome....The trains are pretty neat to.
I don't remember where it was, somewhere in the south I'm thinking Missouri...when I was young my parents took us to a train museum....it was really cool...now that I'm thinking of it I'll have to see if I can find out where it was....would be neat to go back now that I'm older and have a bit more appreciation of that sort of thing....instead of the bored kid that just wants to get to the gift shop!!!

Group of marbles has them from the 1930's thru the 1960's.

Catseye. That one is common. Maybe a quarter or a buck if mint.
