I've got a question for you Dwaine.
Other than Dick explaining that Jack had sold some originals and replaced them with repro's what other globe was questioned?
You said "globes", plural, as in more than one. Who was it that jumped to conclusions about the ElCamino? OK, that's two questions. By the way it was Elden. There's one original known. Could be more out there, nobody knows. What everyone or at least anyone that bothers to get educated on the subject knows, is that the ElCamino globe has been repopped.
It seems a couple of guys want to make more out of something than what its really about.
Anyone that thinks someone hasn't made some very limited runs (one to five)of repop or fantasy globes (or signs) is very naive.
I don't understand your anaolgy about the sign Cheese posted. Are you asking how it got to Michigan? Probably in a truck or trailer. Or were you trying to imply the sign isn't authentic (without saying so in so many words? Hmm, a couple more questions. LOL.
I attended a collector auction in Illinois. The collection was from California. Some of the items in the collection were from the eastern states. Does that mean they were fake? Absolutely not! That means they were transported to another location.
Pretty simple stuff, just like finding out about the Richlube globe.
