On the left thinking Master .62,  Middle thinking Pelt(what kind?) .58,  On the right thinking WV swirl of some kind.  Would be glad to get one right.  The Middle mib in the third picture has what appears to be a crack in the white.  There is no visible or feel loss of glass, it is smooth to the touch.  Is this what is called a fracture and if so are fractures caused in the manufacturing process?  Does it cause a great loss in value?  Thanks to all for any help you can give.1306879687_thumbnail-2021-09-11T193051_315.thumb.jpg.547d36ed36695ba3405a532c3ac6fbf3.jpg1480742075_thumbnail-2021-09-11T193116_010.thumb.jpg.57d9ae91d1a2a4bdb18453dbab19de50.jpg668720474_thumbnail-2021-09-11T193132_843.thumb.jpg.503d9cd36047b176e3e8da50b296b611.jpg965172472_thumbnail-2021-09-11T193149_251.thumb.jpg.9c165a00feb12500b8422199ba0bbed4.jpg

I agree with the id's.  Yes the crack or break is a fracture and will kill the price of most marbles.  Some happen during manufacturing and some happen after or years after. Some are called annealing fractures. Some marbles with these small short annealing fractures are more forgiven with value. Because with certain marbles the majority may have annealing fracture or fractures in them. Hot glass marbles need to cool slow and steady and for 12-24 hours.  The annealing fractures happen because the hot glass cooled to fast, or a to fast of a change in temperature.  All glass is not the same. Some glass with mixed in with another type glass will fracture when heated.  There can be different coefficient with glass and if to wide or far apart, the glass will fracture. A marble can be fractured by impact or dropping. A marble can have a trapped gas pocket and fracture even many years later. Machine made marbles fifty years old or more have fractured and blew apart on display shelves or display cases.    A mint Peltier golden rebel worth $500.00, the  same marble with a 1/4 inch long fracture will drop to worth  $50.00 .  So many marbles worth $10.00 but with a fracture drops to $1.00 or almost nothing.  Certain marbles like Champion furnace scraping marbles many or the majority have fractures. Collectors are more forgiving with the value of these when they have fractures.
