I had the opportunity to take "earlyglass" and "Southern Ohio Digger" diving with me on my 44th BD to a new spot that has given up some really early glass. We did not find any bottles but did find a slew of marbles.

Happy belated birthday. I like the green red and white one. Hey. How the heck are you guys finding marbles? Can you see them?

Hi Bob,

I find the marbles as I am digging for bottles, I have the best luck downstream of early bridge sites and these were found directly under an old foot bridge that has a history of being a bridge site back into the early 1800's.

I can't tell you how many times I've dove there without finding any. Maybe for some reason the little ones played marbles more often there???
