Dug these today... The house was 1865, and I found a couple 1850's inks, which you've probably seen by now... [;)] There were even 1910's milks in the top, and everything in between, so I have no idea how old these marbles are. They're pontiled, anyway... They clearly got a lot of use, they're all dinged up. The candy cane looking one has got some cracks in it. I think they're onionskins.

I know you can get marbles tumbled... Are these worth it?

With my limited knowledge of marbles. I would clssify these as onion skin types. Worth some money if you take the time to get them polished.

Hey Connor,

Sergeant Schultz and I are on the same page when it comes to marbles.

I believe this one https://www.antique-bottles.net/forum/upfiles/13010/3A6BE5A439C043D985DEDD92DB6904BB.jpg may be a divided core swirl.

What size are they? I'd really like to see them polished, I've not dug one of these older German guys in quite a while.
