I'm not a marble collecter (although it does seem interesting) but I found this marble beside my house. It was in an area where the water from a gutter washed away the dirt. The house was built in the 40s. The marble is 5/8ths of an inch. It has a few dings, but no chips. It has what appears to be 2 seams, but they aren't at the poles, I tried to get a pic with both in it, the first pic, but they're just far enough away to prevent both from showing well at the same time.

There is a similar looking one at http://www.marblecollecting.com/marble-reference/online-marble-id-guide/akro-agate-co/ called an Onyx Corkscrew.

Any help with ID and possible value would be appreciated.

So, what should I do with it? I know I can't retire on ot lol. I collect coins. Should I start collecting marbles? Should I give it to the grandson to play with? Does anyone here live in OKC and need it for their collection?

I know it's not worth much, but it may make someone happy.

Whatcha think?
