Ric,

Sweet marble that one. I have never seen one quite like it.

Is it Akro?--sure looks like it from here. Does it cork? Corkscrews alway pop up with color combo's that amaze me.

I refuse to be gun-shy and will call them like I see them, depite all of the contract runs. I looked at this one like I was going to buy it--lol.

Marble--On!!

It's a Jorkscrew - JABO. There are a few killers out there. And I have seen very well seasoned collectors fooled by them.

The old adage, "if it seems too good to be true . . ." definitely applies in some cases. Like, "That's either the nicest Akro I have ever seen, or it's a JABO". lol.

This is a really great marble alan. It looks played with and not dug. With all of the research that you must have done, what is your opinion on the maker. I would guess that it was handmade from my angle. Maybe from an outhouse dig.

These are the 1" marbles that came with my Babe the Blue Ox (Paul Bunyan) Toy.

A couple have a little AV in the green.

Simply a great group of patches.

Try to find these if you are back-filling a box--9/16" seems to be the norm. 1" is not an easy find for sure.

Marble--On!!

I have gone on the premise that it may be American, possibly Leighton....but I haven't given it much thought.  Single gather.  I purchased it 20 years ago in Baltimore without any attribution from another dealer who only deals in machine mades and didn't want to carry it.

Here is the shear:

   I should have put  this in my original post on page one. I wanted to thank "Alan" for pointing me in the right direction and finally helping to I.D. this marble and it's origin, thus another link in Akro marble history was revealed.
