Rare Box of Christensen Agate Guinea Marbles

Rare 25-ct Christensen Agate Guinea BoxFor machine-made marbles in their original packaging, this set is the Holy Grail for most marble collectors. It is an original 25-ct. box of Christensen Agate World’s Best Guineas.

The rare and beautiful “Guinea” marbles, even individually, can fetch hundreds of dollars each. To find an entire set in mint condition in their original box is, simply put, extremely rare. To then find them for sale is unheard of.

I have only seen these boxes in marble collecting books. In fact this box is the very same one shown in the first three editions of Everett Grist’s Big Book of Marbles.

And now it can be yours after you muster the estimated $8,000 – $12,000 it will cost to bid it into your collection.

Marble Trivia

100 years ago the most expensive marble was the genuine agate, or 'realer'; it took the most labor to create and also made the best shooter due to its hardness, roundness and weight.
