<*> Akro Agate Rare Choice Of Champions Box W/marbles& Bag Too <*> For Sale
We are pleased to offer this consignment!
In over 25 years of collecting, I have never seen one of these boxes in person. I was thrilled! This is extremely rare in Akro collecting. Yes it has tape, yes it has wear, but it has all the bells and whistles. the bag, all the original marbles. Moss swirls and the lemonade and limeades. Just outstanding. please look carefully. As said, it has wear. the marbles are mostly all mint. I saw a couple of the big limeades that look like they have a little wear, nothing serious though. Now, check those marbles! they are time period correct. not patches, they are swirls and corks. I did not re-arrange the one side for the marbles to be in order. this is how it came and I want to handle it as little as possible. the bag is stiff, butstill able to move without damage. a little leather dressing would probably do it wonders. Try and add up what each marble would be alone, and then the bag and then therare box. this is something that only comes around once folks! it will have to have insurance. the shipping on this reflects what I think will be close to shipping with ins. added. if it is more, I will pay the difference. (if lower then you will be invoiced less)the consignor has GENEROUSLY offered this with .wow!

Grading is subject to everyone's opinion. And yes, everybody has one. However, if you are offerding on my marbles, you are agreeing to my opinion on grading.
First... I do not grade with a 30X loupe. These were made as toys, not tiffanyart glass.
Many marbles will have factory defects and flaws, some companies more than others simply because of the glass or process used in manufacture.
Grading by numbers. I personally hate the numbers game, but many rely on it for grading info.
10. Not sure there is a perfect 10 marble. As close as I would get to this is 'dead mint'. Meaning it is as perfect as the day it was made.
9.8 looks free of any pocket wear, or play damage, but could still have an as-made little glass flaw, or melted bubble pops, slight cold roll etc.
9.6 to 9.7. Looks fantastic, wet surface, but could have a minute pin prick, or a pin tip sparkle or two (as-made or not). or a very slight roller mark, etc.
9.2 to 9.5 Again, looks great in hand, but could have a tiny flea or two, a little pocket wear, maybe a really tiny subsurface crescent or two., as-made roller scuff etc. General speaking a NM+ to M-.
9.0 I consider this grade a NM to NM+, meaning the marble is still shiny, but will have some pocket wear, or some play damage somewhere, or a combination, yet still very displayable and collectible.
I try not to list anything reconditioned or below a 9.0 unless it is a rare example, or simply a consignors request to list, and I will show and describe the issues.
