Thread: Three marbles, are any of them old?

    Three marbles, are any of them old?

    I found these while detecting, one I am pretty certain is fairly new but one appears pretty old? All were found at different sites. I have another one that I can not find for the life of me, it is one that my 80 year old father probably played with. it was found while digging a target at the old home site long gone. any help would be appreciated. Thanks, DL

    Hello DL,

    The red, white, and blue one looks like it might have been made by Akro, probably late 1940s. The one with 3 strips of color is an imperial from china, newer, probably 1980s to present. The white one looks to be stone, maybe agate. It's early, probably turn of the century. Thanks for sharing!

    thanks for the info, I thought the one was stone like. I have found a couple(no idea what I did with them) that were made of clay? grayish and solid in color

    Yeah, the clay ones are a common and fun find. Old too!
