Have you ever played Marbles as a child?

I started playing at age 11, and now have become an avid collector. I just want to see how many smart people out there have stimulated their childhood dexterity with marbles.

      If anyone still has any of their marbles from their childhood or older family members, I am interested in seeing them. there are so many different ones out there, some I've never seen before.
