Approx. 100 to 140, 100+ year old Clay Marbles... located, dug up in the desert of AZ, NM, all the way to S. CA.
Estate sale finds... The lady running the sale, said her great grandparents and grandparents spent their summers following Wagon Train Trails across the deserts of America. I've got old, OLD toy ceramic dishes All as other items left behind as these Wagon Trains moved on. They were able to follow the Wagon Train trails as well as Temporary Camps of Native American groups moving around, by purchasing maps and map books showing these routes. (I've got one of the maps but I'm keeping that).
These Maps and Books were sold by the US Gov. in the 1930s to 50s. I believe You can still buy them today.
These people did this every summer, she said, from 1929 to around 1940... she sold all kinds of items that her relatives found in the sand, dug up, however they found it... they just did. I also bought a Fossil of a giant sea creature about 3 ft in diameter. (Today, the same type creatures aren't half that big... maybe 8"to 10" in diameter).
I'm selling just the clay marbles today for a Very Reasonable Price.
