As a kid I remember going to the 5 and dime and picking up a bag of marbles for a quarter. I really do not remember ever actually playing marbles. I do remember boiling them in water them putting them in cold water and watch them fracture.Maybe this was normal, maybe not but I really had no interest in them until now.While bottle hunting, I always seem to run across a marble that I usually just pocket. When I get home I just throw them in a saucer. They are stating to add up. I have read articles on them and tried to identify the ones I have but there are so many of them, it is hard to determine whether I have something of actual value or not. Swirls, colors, size, glass..... I am still confused as to what to look for.Anyway, until I get more knowledgeable, I will continue to pocket them and place them in my marble saucer until I can get an expert to look at them. Is there any specific feature that distinguishes them from just a marble?
