I recently purchased a globe (plastic) w/ 2 Dixie lenses (the newer red/white/blue color scheme...I believe these stations were generally in Georgia...does anyone know if these lenses have been repop'ed and if so how to tell an original from a repop? I just wanted to make sure as I purchased them as being originals. Thanks everyone...I don't know much about globes and dont want to get BURNED smile

I don't know much about globes either. But I read a lot. One of the price guides shows a picture of a globe that appears to be a fantasy piece combining elements of a Dixie & Reble globe.

Some of the real globe guys will know a whole lot more about it than I do; I've never seen an original of either one.

They do make those in a repop. The repos should have a date on them the originals will not. Hope this helps smile

Right on...I know the Dixie gas globes are from the 70s or early 80s I believe...they're not very old but were originals (made for Dixie gas co's)... I really wasnt sure if they had been popped though...like almost everything else on the planet unfortunately...there's 2 pump plates as well (tall & tin)...Thanks for your input.

There was a set on the bay a couple weeks ago that were the real deal and I think they went super cheap.

Is this statement for the question asked about the Georgia Dixie Co. globe or the fantasy globe mentioned by Old Iron? I didn't realize that the Georgia Dixie globe had been reproduced. I thought they were all originals because of them still being used in south Georgia, or at least they were about 5 years ago if memory serves correctly....Dale

This question is about the Georgia Dixie Co...I purchased a set on ebay recently (housed in a plastic globe)...I didnt think they had been reproduced but just wanted to ask to see (I purchased them as originals)...I heard they were still being used up until a few years ago...The lenses are so darn nice they almost looked new (thats what through me off smile Thanks for the input...
