Found this in a matter of an hour in about 30 feet. Most have lips or ridges, one has numbers. Any thoughts on what it was?

Black Sea Glass

Typically black sea glass is from old medicine bottles from the early 1900's

I think it is clay from skeet shooting as well.

Skeet Discs?

They look like skeet discs. Many are black with yellow lettering before weathering.

Pretty darn sure

Yes, glass. There is writing on some that would indicate glass. And it is not clay or pottery, but glass.

Are you sure its glass? I've found pieces like this that I thought were glass, but it turns out they were just shards of those skeet things people practice shooting at...

Found at golden gardens beach Shilshole. There is no color except deep black. Went back 2 weeks later and found another load!!

Very cool! Where near Seattle did you find all those black pieces? Have you held them up to the light to see what color they are?
