The jar is filled with about 0.52 liters of marbles.  The marbles, "aggies," are about 11/16 inches in diameter, or about 0.34 inches in RADIUS (not diameter, as stated).  This gives the marbles a volume of about 2.8 cc's each.

The ratio of marbles to air looks to be about 0.58 to 0.42.  So, I am going to guess that there are:

(520)(0.58)/(2.8) = 107 marbles

How'd I do?
