Did Texaco make the Texaco Ethyl globe in a 15" lense? I have Scott's 2012 globe book and don't see a 15" lense listed - only a 13.5" lense.

There is a 15" Texaco Ethyl globe on Ebay. Thinking I might bid if this isn't a reproduction. Take a look and let me know? Thx! Greg

They made a 15" Texaco Ethyl on metal, but not with a red background...it should be white.

Ditto, white background only. Check out the repo section of pcm website, it goes over his perticular globe.

I guess Texaco did make a globe like this, but it was a single one piece globe. And dated at the bottom 31, Extremely rare

According to Scott Benjamin's web sight.
