Where did this come from?

Hi there. I was combing a beach for sea glass in Massachusetts and came across this little gem.
It’s amber in color and from what I understand a sea glass marble.
Do you have any insight on where it could have originated from or even if it’s a rare find?
It is possible your marble was lost on the beach by a child or thrown out in the trash sometime in the past.
Marbles of solid colors are also used in paint cans (when you shake the can you can hear a marble rolling around inside to help mix the paint) so it's quite a possible source also.
