    Mostly bennies and some clay

    These all came from the same area NYC used to dump from 1870- 1910. To complete the picture of how they got there, I included pics of an Old New York sanitation workers , taken by Alice Austen [1866-1952] Think I see some marbles in front of that broom.

    Cool. What's the brown one to the left of the blue glass one? Almost looks like a musket ball or Moqui marble

    No musket ball but it is a brown clay marble. Here is a close up.
