  1. So I know with some marbles they can be hard to tell if they are old or modern marbles, or at least for me anyway because I don't know a lot about marbles I just collect them. I know what some old Victorian marbles look like but other than that I wouldn't be able to tell the difference from a modern cats eye marble from an old cats eye marble. I also collect musket balls that I find when out and about which go into my marble collection. The only way I can tell the difference between an old marble from a new marble is from condition or how decorative it is, like with modern marbles you'd get a lot that are the same but with older ones you get more of a variety of colors and design. How would you tell an old marble from a modern marble?
  2. Your right, modern marbles are getting older but there's nothing quite like a collection of Vintage marbles from the 70's and 80's I grew up in the 90's and there were a lot of 70's and 80's marbles about I remember kids trading them when I was at school and marble games in the playground. I can't really feel much of a connection with modern marbles. I will get my ideal collection very soon, I've already got some 90's marbles to kick start my collection.
  3. I've just joined, and I decided to dig out my old marbles... well there not very old there about 13 years old so nothing special but better than some of the modern cats eye/milky marbles that are made today. Ideally I'd like to collect old marbles from the 70's and 80's and some Victorian marbles too and clay marbles but they are so expensive, plus I have noticed a lot of ebay sellers are passing off modern marbles as "vintage" marbles. I searched a few charity shops and found a few bags of marbles which look early 90's and they are all different so I was quiet chuffed with that. I do also have thousands of modern marbles that I bought in a moment of madness because I wanted a large collection of them but its not a good collection when a lot of the modern marbles all look the same, they were cheap and I bought 20 bags of them each bag contained 100 marbles so I have a lot of them. I'm hoping to build up a decent collection tho rather than quantity.
