WQW! RARE AKRO SCREENPRINTED ING-RICH BEAVER FALLS PA. MARBLE

This measures a little under 11/16" and it is mint!

Recently, I spoke with a friend who told me his uncle was in the screenprinting business in the mid-to-late 1930s. One of the items he screenprinted for companies (filling stations, Cracker Jack, and small local businesses in the area of western Pennsylvania) and individuals (i.e. political campaigners) included marbles. This elderly gentleman, Howard E. Koehler, was born in 1910, and obtained his marbles from Akro Agate. Over the years he has given these marbles to his relatives, including his nephew, my friend, who showed me a jar full. Among the marbles were Popeyes, Corkscrews, and Opaques. Many were printed with the names of individuals, while others had the names of petroleum companies (Esso, Mobilgas, and Sunoco) and such words as "freedom" and "1937." Mr. Koehler himself kept around 100 of these marbles, and allowed me to go through them. Perhaps some of the more interesting examples contained "Landon" or "Landon/Knox"; Alfred Landon and Frank Knox were the repulican candidates for president and vice president, respectively, during the 1936 election, and lost against Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Alan and she were close friends, and he gave people permission to post text from his site.

Would be less confusing if she cited it formally.  But she was probably just trying to share the historical information as background.  I'm sure she didn't mean anything nefarious by it.

HOWEVER with the first one I listed I did indeed site Buddy. its not Plagiarism .. had followed my previous auctions you would have seen it. look up the definition. and your English classes from college. because it is in different type and separate paragraph it is clearly a piece of info from an outside source. Besides Hansel, you're the one that complains that my ads are too long for you to read. lol thanks for the advertisement. only one more left...

super rare! measures 21/32". it is mint. and yes it glows like crazy. please see the excerpt from Marble Alan's ID page explaining the history of these. (thanks Buddy!)

Citation is always good.  However, Alan gave blanket permission for his work to be used.

I'm going to break this segment of the thread off and move it down to the BOI/SZ forum.
