Every now and then we dig a few marbles and most of the time the glass ones are in bad shape and you can't even tell what kind they are. As was the case with some of these but I had a hunch that they might be good ones so I sent them off to get polished. A few days later I got a phone call from the guy I sent them to, I could hear some excitement in his voice as he told me that he has been into marbles for over 40 years and he has never seen a marble like one of the ones I sent him, it was sort of a onionskin in clear glass with mica that was probably worth about $300 to $450 WOW !!!! Next he said one of them was a single pontil end of cane onionskin worth $400 WOW !!! Another one was a clown onionskin worth $125 YEAH !!!! And another was a Joseph's Coat worth $100 HELL YEAH !!!!! Another was a Christensen Agate Co. Flame Worth $75 to $125 YEAH !!!! And the last one was another onionskin worth about $50 NICE !!! Not bad for a bunch of beat up pieces of glass that you could not even see into. When digging bottles are only part of the fun !
