This caught my eye on ebay, and got me to thinking. Weren't these older style HC globes on glass and not capco? I was thinking Sinclair started using capco bodies in the late 50's with the Dino and PowerX globes. I have an original HC globe and the color of these lenses are way off from the green on mine. Just curious.

Hi Ron, thanks for the info. I was told that ALL Sinclair globes had the same size letters. I guess that is not always the case. This information will be very helpful to me in the future. Thanks again.
