Hello All,

My friend has this Texaco single lense and wants to sell it. I told him i would ask the group. Any idea on the current value of this 13.5 inch Texaco lense?? Correct me if i am wrong but I believe it goes on a glass body globe??? The white background is faded (or maybe the lense is a original due to going on a mill glass body) but the red and green are very strong. Small chip on left side mounting tab. Any ideas on value appreciated. Thanks, Andrew

for comparison, mine also has the C at btm of black outer line .. ... cool

appears white is washed out, "if original" - IMO - in the 150. neighborhood

Yes, deep notched for a glass body for sure. Luckily the chip went down instead of up, so it will still sit on a screw properly. Does this lens have a sort of "pebbly" almost matte-like finish to the front? I can't tell from the pics but it looks like the pair I have with the almost clear look to the usual white areas. They were made for a glass body so didn't require the white frit. Mine are not "C" marked either and were likely produced by a different company than CAPCO. I bought my now pair as singles and it took me quite a while to find another to match this particular style lens. I know mine are not reproductions......
