Everyone's going to want to see a picture before they can tell you if they have seen one like it before.

They are a plaster composite, about 24" and heavy. I wouldn't say they are really rare, I've seen more of them than the Marathon Blue globes. Value is whatever someone is willing to pay, but I have seen them for $800-$10,000 for one still in the box. This one is pretty rough, it has either been painted over or is faded bad, hard to say.

I would agree with pogo gas . Many of these seem to have been painted many times . Some, from what I have seen, in the box ones, came unpainted . I have seen them from 2000 - 10000 . They are a great piece . They are legit and you can tell if they are old by examining the plaster .
