A few more capco globes I've had.
Many people think that collecting globes is expensive. Often times it is an expensive hobby, but it doesn't have to be. The globes I've posted were very affordable. A group of five or ten cheap common globes can still make an impressive display.

Thanks for all the posts so far!

Bob made a valid point by posting photos of a bunch of entry level globes. It does not take a lot of money to put a good looking group of globes togather. If you put 15 globes at an average cost of say $200 togather it will look pretty impressive. Do that over a period of a few years and most collectors could do that without depriving their family or ending up in divorce court!

The Dino globes that Bob posted are classic examples of neat globes that can be bought at reasonable prices. The second globe I ever purchased was a Dino Supreme and I still have one in my collection. You often see people ask $250-300 for this globe. I can personally guarantee that you will be able to pick up a Dino globe for as little as $175 at the Peotone Show if you are looking for one!

While not a Dino globe per se, the Sinclair Power-X with the Dino logo that is pictured here is an interesting transitional piece that Sinclair used in the late 50s and is one that is not offered for sale very often.

If you have ANY Capco body globes in your collection why not take a few minutes this weekend and share them with the rest of the Oldgas community. Thanks!

Here are a few more. The new yellow body really looks sharp with the Deep Rock lenses.

Here are some of my first globes. My brother found the Ashland at a local Lion's Club rummage auction for $3.00!! They turn up ocassionally in weird places. Keep your eyes open for rummage sales where folks donate stuff that's just in their way!

Lonnie, would you explain the difference between the two Conoco globes. I presume both versions are real. Thanks. John

John,
This is the later version that Lonnie mentioned. This is the version thats found on the blue-green, red or white bodies.
There are actually two non-outlined versions. If I remember correctly the difference is in the Conoco lettering.

Yeah, she's a real trouble maker. Does Wes still have both globes? Maybe you could persuade him to post a picture of the two side by side.

Of course we have both! They're different, ya know! I'll see if I can get him to post a picture. I'm not totally sure where they both are right now. We'll have to dig them out...

This is kind of a fun post for me because I just happen to be lucky enough to own 2 Texaco, Capco bodied globes that were actually ON THE PUMPS at my local Texaco station back in the day! I actually viewed these globes on the pumps as a young man and of course, never thought anything of them!
Last spring, an older gentleman that had once owned the station, told me a story about some globes in his basement, that were the actual globes from his old station! After a period of time, I was able to purchase them and I guess they'll always be here now! Enjoy the thread--its a good one!

As was mentioned previously, I have a couple of Conoco globes here that show the two different red triangle logos that I'm aware of so far. Bob's wife Karen was kind enough to point this out, preventing me from having to sell one of the pairs of lenses, since they aren't duplicates!

Note the difference in the size of the bar and Conoco letters:


Both of these globes are in original bodies of the original colors. The white one is all original, and the red one had it's body replaced, but did indeed come in a red body originally (it was broken).

I am not an avid globe collector, but I do buy one once in a while and just bought this one friday at the Peotone auction. Lonnie made an excellent point, that there are a lot of nice entry level globes to be had, at affordable prices. This globe was $200.00, the lenses were in great shape and no chips. The Capco, body was really dirty but not broken any place. It was weathered, but it adds to the character of the globe. Glad to share it. Norm Huff.
