One thing Roger didn't mention with Josephs you should be able to look inside, on this example pictured you will notice its almost like there are ribbons missing and you can see into the core the effect is very obvious on mine not so obvious on others you will see https://www.glasmurmeln.com/Josephs-Coats.htm

    I believe it means new marbles meaning machine made , i also think its German marbles only as there are no American marbles but i haven't contacted the gentleman to confirm that as i believe this site is German marbles only On the home page he lists updates he makes to the site so it doesn`t mean new pictures In the category list on the site he has http://www.murmelwelt.de/murmeln.html Alte Murmeln 100 years old Neue Murmeln Machine made mass produced goods so neue Murmeln basically means machine mades
