IMHO, reproduction bodies don't reduce the value of a globe significantly.

The reproduction milk glass bodies are being reproduced using the original molds - so other than the new bodies being a tad more white than an original, nothing else is different.

And as far as I know, we are the only company faithfully reproducing the mounting screws/washers and thumb nuts to mount the lenses.

Later . . .

Thanks for the gentle correction about your photo being from the Metro Petro gas/oil show in New Jersey (not Peotone. IL), my friend. How embarrassing. The guy in the far right looks quite like me, at least from behind. And, what really threw me was the plastic shelving sections being used on the far right vendor's swap table. That is exactly how I set up my vending space. Based on your location comment, I put on my reading glasses and got a magnifying glass out. Of course, you are right. I still admire that guy's fairly decent crop of hair, and rugged good looks...at least from behind! Thanks for the fun, MetroPetro. John

Thank you Jim.

I can say with certainty that the globe and lens have been in a box for 17-19 years and owned for between 20 and 25 years.

I am learning, I understand that doesn't mean it's not a reproduction, sigh.....I'm trying to be as accurate as possible but it's proving to be very difficult.

So how do I know, or do I?

Skelly globes like this one are reasonably common here in the upper Midwest. The lens themselves seem to be found more frequently than complete globes. So, guys buy the lenses and find a glass globe body (either original of reproduction), and a complete globe is created. Kevin's $500 thought for a complete Skelly globe like this one is about right, as I see it. However, it could bring more in other parts of the country, or from an in-person or auction buyer who doesn't have much globe knowledge, or who doesn't know "Old Gas" exists.

The original poster mentioned this Skelly globe came from the seller's parents grocery store/filling station. It always surprises me when someone sells such an old, interesting, colorful, displayable part of their family's history, like this gas pump globe. And, to gain just $250 in return. When an item like this globe is gone from the family....it's usually gone forever. Just me thinking out loud, of course. John

The computer spins nicely and the bell rings. Porcelain computer faces are in original excellent condition, with no chips or touch ups.
It does have one dent in the corner and a small dent in the side near the computer reset handle. Neither are that bad.
No rust except for some surface rust. Very solid.
Shipping available.

Just bought this Large 1950’s Wolverine Texaco Fire Chief Pump off of an old Texaco employee. He added an original mini fire chief pump sign where a paper label would be and he added an original contains lead sign on the side. Also used flat head screws for affect. The pump has shelving in the back. I wanted to share the modification and ask if anyone had this pump as a kid. Thanks

That body looks new (those are reproduced).

And talking for myself, I don't care what body a lens is displayed on.

I put all my lenses on glass bodies, no matter what they were supposed to come on.

I just don't like plastic bodies.

Later . . .

I turned your picture for you!
Those bodies are typically worth $300 and you can expect about $100 for each lens if they are as nice as you say!
Anything above that would be bonus money paid because someone REALLY had to have it!
And we have all done that before! LOL
