Had to have that Morgan globe ya know. Kanotex is on red ripple, Marathon has original paint on body and is mint, and Sunray is NOS with original box. Paid $75.00 for it (a couple years back). It is dated 7-51 inside the body.

Super globes Morgan!

Morgan's Ethyl is from Morgan Oil Company out of Tennesee. It's probably from the 50's.

Marathon Ethyl is from Transcontinental Oil and dates from '26-'38.

Sunray started using this globe in '32.

Kanotex Ethyl is from the 1939-'52 era.

Thanks for sharing.
Bob

Neat globes Morgan!! Really love 'em all, hard to pick a favorite!! Hey, I see you guard your collection with a .50 caliber set-up, as per the Marathon Ethyl globe. Anybody tries to make a 'nite withdrawal' on you they're gonna get quite a vitamin pill in the butt!! Right on!!

This a a generic globe that probably dates from the 60's. Very unusual globe. Thanks for sharing it.
