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.
