Marbles / another neat thing to find ?

About 50 years ago I found 2 clay marbles that actually have clearly viable finger prints in them. I don't have a clue on how to date these things and I still have them in an old jewelers box. I do know that the area I found them in was a well used Native American camp site close to the Monongahela River in Allegheny County.

my grandfather dug footers for garages for around 35 years. i have some money for sure in the thousands of marbles he found and gave me. i will never forget him coming home from work and me always waiting with my hands out.

i had a jewelry shop go through just one box and told me he would give me 800 for the entire box but he was really only interested in 4 of them. they were bigger marbles.

i did some research and put them on ebay and they sold for 1100.

You want me to put my ear to the ground? Listen for hoof beats? Look for broken twigs?
