    Quality OVER quantity? 2022 Bottle Hunting Wrap-up

    Awesome finds. Not sure what my wife would say, but I think it's pretty cool assortment on the lawn.

    I've got balls, and my first cobalt hutch.

    Any idea what the balls are made of? I'm guessing about 1" diameter? Could be from a ball mill. With Bocce there is usually only one white ball (the Jack)

    Help with Well Dig

    Seems to me, that if a spot is located below the water table, you'd exhaust yourself with buckets and pumps since a well was prposely dug to be below the water table.

    I agree with granite. Might actually be an old native tool. Is it about the size to fit in your hand?

    Help with value or ID on some marbles

    The glass German marbles from the same period are more collectible so I'd keep looking. Especially after a heavy rain

    Yeah, I've seen hundreds of clay marbles. When they fired the glaze on, the marble was on a 3 "prong" support which results in the eyes. You can probably see a couple examples here mixed in with some other clay marbles

    ccb420 the clay marbles are called Benningtons by collectors. Made in Germany, around 1900's (+/-). The spots are from when the glaze was fired in the kiln.

    OP, the first jar is mostly Vitro with a few Marble Kings. The best marble (in my opinion) is the green/white/black Vitro. The other jars I wouldn't bother with.

    1890's Blob Top Beer + Other Relics

    Cool. Looks like the "muck" preserved them well. Did you use a probe to find them?
