What Made The Price Go So High?


Recommended Posts

I have no idea if its an actual original box from Akro and I wondered about the price too...but I put it down to that "type" of box is even more rare than the blue Akro tins....a box similar to that one is pictured in Hardy's book - the "art deco" look - I am not at home right now so I can't look it up - but I know I have seen one very similar ... the marbles certainly don't look mint and they don't fit very well - it may not be original huh. Maybe someone knows more.

For what it's worth, there appear to have been Akro boxes which weren't stamped Akro. A couple of discussions have been had about that here. In some of the gift sets it seems that the ID was done with an insert on a separate card. Lose the card and lose the ID.

I gather that most were marked in a permanent fashion tho'.

I still don't know what to think about the black interior. :huh:
