Akro Boxes

Recommended Posts

My guess for the one Greg posted is a modern repro box from the people who re-registered the Akro trademark -- remember those guys? And then maybe it was messed up a little so it looked older.

.... anyone save the photos of the known repro from when we were talking about the repro company registering the trademark?

I know I did somewhere, but can't think of how to search for it.

Edit: I found the photo I was looking for. The sample pictured with the trademark registration is not identical to the box Greg posted. But it's a good reminder of what is out there. Going to post it in another thread. And the box Greg posted is still a mess! aiyiyi

Try and find anything on a G.A.R convention with those dates printed on the first box. You have much better search skills than I. I found nothing???????????OOOOps I found a lot. That box is fake. From the records of the GAR
