Akro Agate

Gender: Boys & Girls Style: Agate
Country of Manufacture: United States
VINTAGE AKRO-AGATES MARBLES. Here is an original Akro-Agate Marbles Sears-Roebuck & Co. assorted colors in their original cardboard box. Made in U.S.A. and box says No. 7748. There are 25 marbles in all in the box-5 rows of 5 each. As-purchased. As you can see in the RED Agate Marble row there is only 4 reds and one White Clear?Mica? Will be that way when you purchase. This company closed in 1951. (this info on bottom of box by previous owner) You can see on the top of box info that it used to be THE WORLD'S LARGEST STORE-Sears-Roebuck & Co. These marbles are beautiful. A row of Brown-BLue-Green-Red and Yellow. Don't know anything about making measurements of marbles? You marble people know what they usually are and what their called. I can only guess. I do know these in their original box and in very good condition are a Collector's Dream of owning. Box measures approx 3 1/2" square. Early Marble Akgo-Agates in original box. Very collectible! WELCOME! PLEASE WAIT for my S & H Invoice after auction. Depending on your location-insurance could change costs. International Buyers always more. Your country must abide by US shipping rules. I sell mostly vintage-retro collectible items. Please understand this means used-older. I try to mention maker marks, size, measurements, color and any damage that I find. Any problems- Please contact me first. NO clothing returns! Returns accepted within 14 days-Buyer always pays return costs-NON-NEGOTIABLE!. I will combine shipping for purchased multiple items. PLEASE remember Feedback! THANKS!

 A fellow Ebayer/Buyer was wanting to know about the box?  Here is more info:  Pretty sure original box to this set of Marbles. It's in VG condition. Shows age rubbing on corners and sides of course. Has a brown stain (see pixs) on lower top right side. Is more off-white than white after all these yrs. Marked in black lettering:  25 ASSORTED AKRO AGATES Insignia-large capital A with Eagle going thru middle carrying in his beak & claws Marbles---PACKED FOR SEARS-ROEBUCK & CO. WORLD'S LARGEST STORE BY THE AKRO AGATE CO. CLARKSBURG W. VA.     On side of box: NO. 7748  MADE IN USA.  The lid fits snuggling onto lower box.  Both in good condition.  Cardboard dividers between each row of Marbles.  On bottom of box is a taped information from previous owner says in ink written script:  Company closed in 1951.  For these Marbles to stay complete in their original box is amazing.  The previous owner cherished them and I don't think? they were ever played with.  I'm not a Marble person but their in great condition.  Every good with these marbles-as purchased-AS IS. QUESTIONS???        GOOD LUCK TO ALL THAT HAVE EMAILED ME-PLEASE TAKE CARE OF THEM!   C                   Please WAIT until I send you a completed S & H Invoice after auction!  Depending on YOUR location and price these sell for could change Insurance costs???                                                                                                                    I can't add the Insurance until completed form for Shipping Label.           Keep in mind!    THANKS!
