Nice collection Lyle. You have a lot of oval globes, so they must be a specialty collection for you. Can you enlighten me on the oval Mobilgas globe please? I've never seen or heard of one previous to your post. I see the Made in USA marking at the bottom, which I have a 13.5" globe with those markings. It's been discussed here that globes with that marking could A) be made for foreign markets, or B) something done by a certain lens manufacturer and nothing special. It's a great looking piece either way.
Thanks for any info you can provide to us,
Darin

Very neat piece Lyle....I normally stay away from foreign pieces, but if another came up for sale I might have to add that one to my Mobil collection!
Thanks for the reply,
Darin

I cant believe that Hayes frame that came from the Hoosier state could look that good. If i wouldve known that, i wouldve kept that thing! Lol.....I really like the M&S 70 done in White Rose......All of your collection looks amazing!

Nice. If that's only half, then we'll anticipate seeing the other half. It won't bore us, I promise. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks so much for sharing your collection with us. Loved seeing your oval Zephyr globes.

The oval Mobil globe is a new one on me too. Cool! Lots of other great stuff too. Your son did a nice job on the pictures.
