Here are some uncommon capco globes.
This Rock Island is an unusual color, and the body is an unusual color. I think a Frontier like this has been posted. Its a great looking globe and the most common globe in this group. One of my favorites is this Bell Ethyl on orange capco. The UTOCO is extremely rare and obviously a Standard affiliate. The (Stoll) Golden Tip is another favorite of mine.

Here are a few more uncommon capco globes from my collection.
The Sinclair Marine with Sinclair in italics is the rarer later version.
The Pep 88 is from Utah Oil Refining Company (UTOCO)and is scarce as hens teeth.

Next to the Imperial is an Oco Pep Regular globe that sold for somewhat more than the Imperial! A rare globe, in fact the only Regular that I have ever seen. Noted globe collector Bob Drake snagged it. Oco Pep was out of Bloomington, Illinois I believe and from Bob's back yard. Great purchase!

Also on the Auction was the Bay with the "Bullseye". This globe was used by Bay Petroleum out of Saginaw, Michigan. Uncommon piece and one that is seldom offered for sale.

And last is an uncommon pair of Amlico globes that were offered at the Show. Amilico was a small Texas Marketer that later became part of Fina. One was a single lens, the other had some staining to the back lense and the asking price on the pair was $500. Not an outrageous sum of money if you collect small brand Texas globes.

Take a few minutes and share your Capco globe photos with the Oldgas community. With the new format, pictures are so easy to load that even I can do it!

I love those small Michigan company globes! I was born and raised in Saginaw but never heard of Bay Petroleum before. Do you have any other info or items from them?

Imperial Refineries is out of Clayton, Missouri. The Imperial Globe in your picture is from a different company out of Mt. Pleasant, Michigan and is part of the Johnson Oil Company. Although the Globes do resemble each other they are from Different company's. I am suprised that there were not any Copy Right infringements between the 2 company's.

Here is a Imperial Refineries Globe.


And this Imperial out of Mt Pleasant, Michigan part of the Johnson Oil Company.

This one isn't a gas pump globe. Travelers Aid is an orginization that assisted stranded travelers. I believe they are still in existance primarily helping battered women. Back in the day their globes could be seen at airports, train stations, and at the YWCA among other places.
