I have a Standard Oil crown that is milk glass with Green Paint. Just like the gold or red, but green. Anyone know about this?

Wow ,Give this guy all kinds of information on this globe about rarity and a price of what it's worth. And he has it listed for sale on face book . And not even one word of appreciation or a thank you . Geez !

That sucks, seems to be common anymore unfortunately....he should have offered it here on Old Gas first as I'm sure there would be a willing buyer.

I've said it before, and I try to be nice and offer information occasionally, but a simple "thanks for the help/information gents" would go a helluva long way with goodwill towards others when folks ask for information on this site! This is exactly why fewer and fewer of us are giving out information anymore. mad

I had an email conversation with the guy and provided the info he was looking for. He did say thanks.
