Not much by Most standards but a good start to my globe collection & to add to my few starter signs.
Found the globe by chance . While I was re-searching the history of the company ,I ran across a 1936 Old Dutch 100 share stock certificate that I will mount to the oak show case that I made for the globe.The gentlemen whom owned it was kind enough to send it too me for my display.Would not take a dime.I am going to send him something petro in return.

Thanks to Travis and Jim for your comments on the Zephyr. It must be special cause it's the only gas/oil item my wife lets me keep in the house.

Good eye Ted. At the time the picture was taken I had just brought the globe home and didn't realize it was in fact turned around. If you zoom in and look close the picture now shows the globe with the ring in the proper position.

I got a couple items for the collection last year. I saw a picture of a sign like this in the one collectibles book several years ago. I think the book was printed in the 1990's. Never saw a real one untill a guy bought some from an old Sinclair guy and put them on ebay. PASCO stands for the Pan Am Sulpher Company. They owned part of Sinclair in the 1960's if I remember the info right.



This very sign is the one pictured in the Sinclair collectibles book. I saw it in person at Iowa Gas in 2012. A guy brought it and a matching half gallon can to the show to show us but it was not for sale. Last year he found a globe he wanted and he sold the can and the sign to my brother. I traded for the sign and have dibs on the can. Sinclair bought out Cudahy and then used the Opaline brand name.



Also picked up this sign. Probably from the 1930's era and used on the back of a delivery truck. The round ones are a lot more common. I think there is a matching Opaline sign too.



Also picked up a clock at IG



Also picked up a few cans and other things. It was a good year but it is getting expensive to add to the collection.

For my BOTY I am choosing a ROCO globe that "mm" was kind enough to part with. It was a key acquisition as it lead to an addiction with globes as you can see by the company it keeps.

ROCO also qualifies as an independent company that existed in Winnipeg MB until the late 70s as per the link below

Better start investing in additional shelving Fred, those pair of globes will multiply like rabbits.

Steve the "others bunnies" are around the corner. But in the long term they will live in the gararge once I get shelving and electricity in there. too cold to start now.
