Wondering about today's value on a Wilshire Oil RADIO GASOLINE globe. Complete, on a 15" metal body. Both lenses are very good. Thanks. John

Very good of you to be concerned, Randy. I am aware of the reproduction of this globe that is available these days.

The photo I posted is from an in-person auction about 15 years ago. The globe brought pretty good money at that time. I'm pretty sure the people attending that auction would have spotted any repo disclaimer wording at the bottom of the lens. I'll get my magnifying glass out, and see if I can make out the wording shown in the photo. Again, thanks for posting. John

Yes, T-way. With my magnifying glass out and the photo in the bright sunlight this afternoon, that's what I was able to read in the picture of the original RADIO GASOLINE globe I posted. I see the reproduction Radio Gasoline globe photo that Randy posted shows the year it was made in the 12 o'clock position on the lens.

Still looking for opinions about the value of an original. Thanks. John
