You could do that if you know how to tell the difference between real lenses and repops. In other words, you better make darn sure those aren’t real lenses in a new Capco body before you go scuffin them up. Small chance, but you never know.
Many scenarios out there.... maybe the farmer had the original globe and cracked the Capco body. So he bought a new one and put the lenses back in it. Or maybe the farmer got the pump from a gas station and the gas station gave him a globe that sat in his barn for 50 years before he put it on. Etc.
Yours do look like repops in that photo, but they did have those lenses back in the day. If you want, post a closer picture of the front AND BACK of the lenses on here and us folks here on OG can tell you if they’re real. (highly recommend)
And to be honest, you probably just need to age the globe body to make it look old, I wouldn’t worry about the lenses.
