Thanks for the feedback on my question.

Someone is going to be mad when they find out the globe they bought is a reproduction. Last I checked, the bidding on the 15" globe was at $390. Greg

I cannot believe anyone would actually think this globe is real. Come on bidders....Colors are way off and Texaco never made this version on metal. Scott Benjamin

My feeling is this, everyone of us should send the following question to the seller or any seller of a questionable item:

DO YOU GUARANTEE THAT THIS GLOBE/SIGN/WHATEVER IS AN ORIGINAL?

Then just set back and see if he answers.

BTY, I sent the question to the seller and I am not even a buyer.

Well, he did post some of the controversey in his comments section but left it out there that he thinks there is a possibility that its an original. Its up to $455 but nowhere near what the recent Texaco Marine fantasy globe brought!

Don't know. Maybe he took them off after he sold?
