Heres three marbles found last year in a city dump I dig in quite a bit.
Two largest are 7/8" diameter (approx.) & the small one is about 5/8".
Still abit of rust/crud on them but dont appear to be damaged.

Thankyou for the information, I didnt think they were anything special but hey, ya never know right? [:)]

I have one other in the bunch thats an odd ball, not even sure if its a marble, cleaning it up I see its hollow?

It's nickel size (about 7/8") clear, a little tit on one end, the other is 'sorta' ground flush but actually its alittle oblong. This one came from an 1880s-90s privy, looks like its seen some use, any thoughts appreciated...Al
