MINT(+) 1-1/32" Akro Agate BLUE OXBLOOD PATCH

Item# GM2142
Here is a HUGE, well over an inch, old Akro toe-breaker with a nice wide OXBLOOD patch and a light blue one on the other side of a snow white base glass. This is probably the largest Akro I've ever had my hands on. I've heard they made a very few up to 1-1/4" but it's been my experience that the large ones usually fall just shy of a full inch. You have to look close to see them, but the little eyelash-like marks are present at the seams indicating this is one of the older, pre-Freeze, marbles that were made prior to the Spring of 1922--nearly 100 years ago.
CONDITION: MINT(+) 9.6-9.7 The surface is beautifully wet and shiny with no sign of play or wear of any kind. There are some various size melted dimples, a touch mark with a tiny open air bubble in it, and what looks like some sort of roller mark. Nearly all of this requires magnification to see enough to describe.
