    My oldest MARBLE so far + other tidbits *Need a Duffytrash marble ID please**

    Nothing much today, but I had to get out as the weather was 60's, sunny, and there was a great breeze.
    I hit my 1830's CW property and the whole lawn and field was trimmed nice & low. I thought I had picked the place clean, but there were a few things I missed, even BIG pieces.
    I have a few "whats its" if you care to take a guess.
    Any idea what the rusty iron key like piece may be, or the metal (heavy like brass) piece with rim?

    In the hole with one of the pieces of metal I noticed a white ball. At first I thought it was another one of those grubs rolled into a ball. It turned out to be a large marble that I think may be clay. Hopefully I can get an ID on it. I would love to know how old it is.

    My only coin was a 41' Wheat.

    Thanks for looking,
    MM

    Hey Dug,

    Oh yeah, that clay marble is nice. I still have not found one, even though I'm always scanning my head in search of those non-metallic relics. That 1830s property still has some Colonial coins on it. Isn't that where you got your cut Spanish silver?

    Kyle,
    Great memory. Yep, this is the place I dug the Spanish silver piece, the eagle sword belt plate, and my only LC (no date).
    There was a one day CW battle on this location at the end of the CW. Looks like it's still giving up a few relics though. That darn wheat was DEEP! I was hoping for an older coin in the bottom of the hole, but it showed me that the Mighty Tesoro still could hold it's own.
    Maybe the marble is really a CW kidney stone?
    Take care buddy,
    Doug

    That appears to be from some sort of locking mechanism... Cool marbles, some people say I lost mine. Maybe you just found them... Congrats and HH

    Newt,
    The piece is cast brass. The back was just dirty in the picture.
    Thanks,

    I have found quite a few of the white clay marbles in farm fields, I have never found any info on them though. Hope someone knows something about them, would benefit us both! Nice finds

    Re: My oldest MARBLE so far + other tidbits *Need a Duffytrash marble ID please**

    Hey Doug.

    Your clay marble reminded me of my only clay marble find at an old park. I found mine in a plug that had a wheatie in it. I've been told that the clay marbles were created in the 1880's-'90s. Mine is smaller than yours, and has an orange color.

    Nice find! You're due for another fantastic find!!

    Keep The Passion High!
