Hi, David.  Welcome. 

Do you see the paperclip attachment option at the lower left of the reply window?

You can add pictures there, as long as they're small enough kilobytes.  I think around 425 kb.  Might be a little higher.  

Or you can choose another host such as pinterest and post the picture address and the software usually automatically turns it into a picture.  

You can also post in our gallery, and get the address from there to post in your threads.

Hi Steph, thanks for input. I posted a photo in the gallery because my photo from iPad is to many kB and I have not found a good way to compress it. If you have a chance to look at gallery your input is much appreciated!

Thanks, Dave

Here we go ....  the top left one definitely says Jabo or DAS to me, made in a special contract run after 2007.   Seems a good chance of  Jabo (or a related marble) on the rest.   

The bottom left stands out as potentially different.  Need some of our Jabo experts in here.

Hi Steph,

Thanks for your help! Are Jabo,s handmade? Several of these have a indention into the marble. The red one does not show but deep inside there are lines swirling around. Are there some books on identifying marbles that you recommend?

Thanks, Dave

Not handmade.

The indentations are cold rolls.  Where the molten glass was just a little too cool to be completely rounded on the rollers.  

 

Here's a GIF of the rollers in action :)

Looking at your marbles in the gallery, I do see some range in the ages.   Mostly modern  but some handmades which I presume are older.  They make me think your smaller white and brown one in your first picture might be a vintage West Virginia swirl.  Possibly an Alley. 
 

Thank you for thinking of donating ... there's a link on the homepage -- http://marbleconnection.com/  Is it showing up?  Over on the right?

Best to start a new thread with each group of marbles, coz it gets confusing otherwise.  So I'll start a new thread with one group and take a stab at them. Then see where to go from there.
