All Alley marbles. I had about a case of the bullseye and big shot mesh bags. Don got most of them. The red/white/blue boxes come as, Big Shot-Bulls Eye- Big Nickle-Big Dime. I like the Big Shot box at the top. This is the first one i have seen,would like to find one. The other marble company which used Big Shot as a common name on their bag labels and boxes was Heaton agate. Pressman distributed Alley marbles,labeled as Big Shot. Many Heaton bags and boxes also have the name Big Shot. These were the two companies that used the Big Shot name the most,but others also used the same name Big Shot.

Cool info. Thanks!

I don't know who had that nice box. I tried to retrace my steps to see where I might have found the photo but no luck.

And then we jump ahead a decade or two. Here are some early Japanese cat's eyes. The ones with bright colors, and pretty, sometimes peachy base glass. Pre-1964.

Source (with more pix and discussion): Old package or new?

And while I was at LOM looking that up I found a couple more links ...
