Skelly globes like this one are reasonably common here in the upper Midwest. The lens themselves seem to be found more frequently than complete globes. So, guys buy the lenses and find a glass globe body (either original of reproduction), and a complete globe is created. Kevin's $500 thought for a complete Skelly globe like this one is about right, as I see it. However, it could bring more in other parts of the country, or from an in-person or auction buyer who doesn't have much globe knowledge, or who doesn't know "Old Gas" exists.
The original poster mentioned this Skelly globe came from the seller's parents grocery store/filling station. It always surprises me when someone sells such an old, interesting, colorful, displayable part of their family's history, like this gas pump globe. And, to gain just $250 in return. When an item like this globe is gone from the family....it's usually gone forever. Just me thinking out loud, of course. John
