These marbles belonged to my husband-who passed away in 2015 at age 92-so I believe these are 75 years old.  I have been told they are banded agate-is that correct.  I have 110 of them.

Some have bands.  At least one has a bullseye.  

They are agates.  I'm seeing  signs  of the damage which comes from some serious marble playing -- which some of us like to see.  :)  It would stop those from earning the "mint" label but they would be thought of as veterans instead. :)  

75 years would put them back to 1944.  Good chance they're a bit older than that.  Call them early 1900's but the popularity of agates goes back even earlier.
