My Uncle brought up Grandpa's marble bag to show me one day. I don't know how old it is but my Uncle is 87 and he used it also when he was a boy. Thought maybe some one might like to see it. I think it is in remarkably good shape, but then kids took care of their toys back then.

Nice bag Dugout, are there any marbles in it? I don't collect them, but I love seeing anything with age and history. Smoke

My uncle would like to know if there is anything here he could retire on. He's only 87 [:D].

Nice collection for sure !
Bottom left is considered a Clambroth type i think ,bottom right could be Peltier Golden Rebel (need more views) depending on size and condition they have sold for as much as $750 pretty penny for a machine made marble .
Condition ,rarity and size are key to top dollar with marbles

Like the black flower frog ! These mostly look like Peltier marbles ,the bottom center(blue and red) might be submarine type(these types are hard for me to id), if so could bring decent money .

This red and white one looks interesting ,could be a cold roll mark or a double ingot (two marbles together ) [:)]
