THE SCOOP on the
"CIVIL WAR STAR" MARBLES?
They are fakes. They are new clay
marbles painted to look old, or old grayish clay marbles dug from a site,
then painted over with common latex paint
with a star on each one.
The history that is claimed: They were
recovered from a factory that made porcelain and clay marbles between
1840-50 in Atlanta Georgia.
The original site burned in 1864 during
the Fall of Atlanta at the hands of William Tecumseh Sherman.
Fragments of these marbles have been found at the Gettysburg Battlefield
where they were broken during the firing of the canister rounds.
Bulldozer operator James W. Kirkland of Harriman TN found the stash of
5,000 or so 19th century marbles. He was a subcontractor for a
construction company that flattened the dilapidated buildings in a 72 acre
area that became Atlanta's Centennial Olympic Park (excerpt from Atlanta
Journal Constitution "Window to the Past" by Bill Hendricks,
There were no companies mass producing clay
marbles during that era, only glass cane cut swirls imported by the
barrel-load. The story sounded so plausible that many folks bought
them. Now they are so famous, people collect them as an example of
FRAUDULENT MARBLES, their notoriety has made them collectible.
