Have this marble as long as i remember,it's translucent 11/16.

Years back it's IDed as not American made.

It has something kind of like a pontil but if someone told me those are cold rolls i believe it aswell,on the white side there are several small asmade dents.

Looks more like a cutoff mark (pontil) than it does a cold-roll. There seems to be a bumpy surface in the bottom of the "valley", which would be much more typical of a cutoff. Also, I see the blue on the surface forming to a point, which could be the tip of a very wide "9". How does the base compare with the translucent base of the French patch marbles you posted a few weeks ago? ... Roger

Normally shrunken EOD would be much more toward the center. I wouldn't say its "shrunken" - as what there is of the onionskin seems to be properly on the surface. Perhaps just a very sparse onion for which they ran out of their supply of glass used for the surface. Nice looking though. ... Roger
