How old are these bricks? (with pics!)
Hi there! I've been trying to find an answer online, but I can't pin down anything for all my searching.
I recently was given a big lot of random Lego pieces. When sorting, I noticed a few looked "odd."
As you can see in the pics below, there are no tubes in some of the bricks (the 1x6 on the far left is a modern one for comparison purposes). Also, the studs on top appear to have a slight raised lip around their edges.
How old might these bricks be? Is there a good guide online that can walk me through the history & evolution of the bricks?
