That kind of aging is easy to reproduce. Just look on Ebay at all of the artificially aged fakes. The front is regular paint with a varnish painted on to give it a dingy cracked look. The varnish has brush marks all in it. The few bright white spots are where the varnish has chipped off leaving the regular paint. The back of the metal had sort of a green plastic film residue on it. The metal its self is flimsy. Definitely not 1969 or older. Also would not have been licensed or official brand advertising. My opinion is that its a fake AND a fantasy piece.

Looking for any Alabama based globes and advertising such as Coastal, Rebel, Interstate Oil, Foster Oil (supertane), Mutual, Oil Well, etc...
