MINT(+) 5/8" Akro Agate: RED/GREEN POPEYE CORKSCREW

Item# GM2302
First marketed by Akro Agate as the TRI-ONYX CORKSCREW, they later became known as POPEYEs due to the popular cartoon and comic strip charactor portraid on the boxes in which these particualar marbles were sold. The crystall clear base glass with the opaque white wispy threads are the defining feature and usually are accompanied by two, and sometimes more, different colored corkscrews--this example sports red and green, which, while not the most common color combination produced, it is not the rarest. Still a hard marble to find in such exquisite condition.
CONDITION: MINT(+) 9.7 or better. The surface is wet and shiny and I can find no evidence of play or wear even when using a bright light and 10x jeweler's loupe.
