    a few from my digging

    So far this year i have dug a pint jar full of marbles out of privies and trash pits. 90% of them are Bennington, china, and clay but a good number are glass. These are a few marbles from my digging. although I've been studying marbles a little, i cant figure these ones out. Any help is appreciated. #10 is redish orange, white, and green # 11 is blue and blood red and #12 is just dark blue and white. these 3 are approx. 1/2"

    the red and white one on the left labeled with a #9 is very odd because it is not round at all. Their are no chips or flakes but it is almost oval shaped. Approx. 1/2"

    This last one is certainly handmade. Probably the oldest glass marble i have but it is quite beat up. Slightly over 1/2" maybe 9/16".
    It is blue, pink, and white.

    Need closer pics. Take pics of the poles of the marbles as well. 10. could be Vitro. 11. could be a Oxblood Akro Marble. 12. is an Akro Ace. These marble likely aren't 1/2", but more like 5/8"
