Real or fake Pure Gas Globe Lenses on ebay - Sat Aug 08 2015 01:46 PM

I want to get your guys opinions on these Pure lenses on eBay if there real or reproductions? It worries me there conveniently worn where it would say reproduction. If the seller is on this site I'm not here to offend anyone I just want opinions

The notches look to be cut for a glass body... Kinda hard to tell from the pics on ebay. Most repops have small notches for Capco bodies...And the font looks right.. IMO I would say real.

I agree with Brian...the lenses are cut for glass and the white areas appear to be pretty thin which is indicative of lenses made for glass bodies, since the body created the "whiteness". While it might appear intentional at the 6 o'clock area, I see other areas of weathering along the sides of the lenses, also a sign of honest use on a pump. Someone probably tried to touch up the area to make it more white, which usually doesn't work well, especially if they are lit.

On a side note, if you're interested in these, I would ask for better pics of the notches. It looks like there is damage on one lens but the pics are pretty poor. It's one thing if a chip goes down or you're going to try and stuff them in a Capco, but when chips go UP on the notch, there can be issues mounting them in a glass body.
