    Looking for the one they call Cheese

    Hi mr Cheese
    Been referred to u many times in other forums but never had the time to stop by.
    As the year ended I put together all my marbles for the year. I know the clay marbles
    Are old, but Iím clueless about the others. Probably just modern junk but I think itís
    Worth asking.

    Hi there Lilo!

    Nice group! The clay ones with the round eyes on them are called Benningtons. They are cool and collectible but not very valuable. A couple bucks each, maybe $10 or $15 for the shooter.

    The second photo shows some nicer old ones from mostly the 1940s or so, some Vitros, maybe a Master, some Alleys, and maybe other West Virginia swirls, all machine made. I don't think any are more than a couple of bucks. The third from the left in the center row could be a few bucks if condition is nice, might be a Ravenswood swirl.

    Last photo looks like a range from the 30s to the 70s or so. The oldest would be the Vitro Helmet (the white one with a short red strip and clear window at around 5:00 in the center area of the marbles, and the Akro rebel corkscrew, that's the red/black/white one at the top. That one could be worth a little bit if the condition is minty. Maybe $15-30.
    I do see a couple of blue slags in that last photo. Those would be even older. Maybe teens-20s. They probably overlap with the age of the clays and the clays extend earlier still.

    Thanks for sharing, hope that helps!

    I see you didn't ask for values, and I put them in anyway out of habit... so many folks asking about their marbles here and on other sites are trying to see if they have anything valuable in the bunch.

    That's great! I haven't seen a kid play marbles since the 1980s I guess. Not counting me showing my nephew how to play recently.

    Rural Mexico is still active with marbles and many old school games.
