Both are Blue Benningtons but the one on the left is the largest marble that I have ever found weighing in at a whopping 1-1/2" in diameter. When it popped out of the ground the other day, I thought that it was a broken bottle top until I held it in my hands and realized that it was a marble. The one on the right for comparison is 13/16"

Nice Bennie Dan. That's a good size one. I've seen them 2 inches. I had a 1 7/8" Blue back when I collected Benningtons.

Here's one I found while digging with "Digswithstick" a couple summers ago....It's gotta be 1 1/2" also.

Nice one Joe. Browns and Blues can be found now and then in that size. Fancies and Greens are far tougher to find in the larger sizes.

Thanks Road Dog,...I'm always surprised when a good size marble rolls out.
