A few Heaton memories.   The wood display box was a hand made gift from Cheese (Chuck). Made of wood found at the Heaton marble site.  What a precious gift. Lots of sweat was lost at this site by several people saving history.

They came from the same spot, in one hole, about 3-5 minutes apart. The best two Heaton's I have ever seen.  They were pocket marbles. They did not go in the bucket. Lucky they were in with lots of mud and water. The water allowed them to be seen even with the wet dirt. Enough was clean to be seen and into the pocket. Heaton was the first place that I ever dug a marble from the dirt about 24 years ago. It took a lot of years and lots of moving dirt to finally get these two prizes. I took my grandson there to dig marbles with me when he was five years old. He is now 27 years old.

I will agree with that! And please give my regards to your "little" marble buddy next time you see him.

The Red Baron above was found by Chuck(cheese). I am still looking for one. But I still have a couple buckets of dirty Heaton's yet. If I ever clean them ??  I like to leave some dirty from each dig. Someone in the future can have the fun or leave them dirty ? Cleaning dug marbles is going to disappear and not to far off.  Many sites are empty or not worth the effort.
