This globe came with a Tokheim 300. It has a nice heavy glass body with brass hardware, and rubber grommets. Glass lenses also seem heavy compared to the repros I buy for restorations.
Measures: lenses are right at 14" and the entire globe is roughly 16"
Real or Fake?
Looking through other post and resources it seems real but I'd prefer some professional opinions.
Value ideas?
Thanks

Looks real to me but I haven't seen that set of inserts on a Hull frame before. I have an earlier dark green HC on Hull. The Hull frame makes the globe worth a little more. There's some other Sinclair guys that can verify what I'm saying, I'm not the expert......GB

Thanks. I thought the glass body was older then the lenses. Any value idea? I don't usually do pumps from the 50's or 60's and just wanted a ball park value since that will give me a direction towards displaying it.

I bought the exact same lenses on an original capco a few months ago for $400. ........I paid too much. They are 1957-59 ish and should be in a capco.

From globe CD.
Isnt this the globe on the left??
13.5" on glass body.

BTW, if your going to buy even ONE globe, buy the CD!! If nothing else it's a great research tool!!!!!
