"Welcome to Marble Connection Ashley"   :wave2:

            Most of what I see  isn't worth more than a couple penny's but one marble can make all the difference !! Looks like some foreign and some vintage, for a better idea sort into groups of 4 or 5 w/ multiple views for a more accurate I.D. Measurements in fractions of an inch can be very helpful also again  "Welcome"

I also have a ton of these. The we're made by my neighbors dad. They were made by a company called Tracor, and the were made to be melted down for military use. I can remember exactly what for, I'd have to ask my husband later. Have you ever heard of them?

Heard of a lot of marbles made for all kinds different industrial use, paint spray can rattlers etc...... Can't say I ever heard of Tracor specifically ??

aerospace technology is what they were for...hiding planes from radar

Wow, do you know if they were just regular glass, irradiated, coated ?? Sounds very interesting.

I found this, is does say NASA used them in space balloons, guess there's a whole lot to it that was unknown to me, good post !!
