BigTom,
How many pumps have you seen in collections in As Found Condition?
Not many & there are Less every day being saved As Found.
Most of us older guys Wished that we had saved some of the Great Pumps we found in As Found Condition W/ Decals/Signs & Globes still in GREAT Condition, 30+ yrs ago.

DB, that makes sense - I didn't think about it that way. I guess the true rare pumps are the ones that dont need restoration and are just cool as they are when they are discovered.

Thanks for the clarification

Jason Roach has a G&B 97 Polly pump I found an Couldn't get a couple guys to paint the way I wanted. I gave up an sold the pump As Found less guts. It has been sold 2 more times in As Found when Jason bought it.
Kyle Moore had a Bowser 97 in his collection that was found in the Original Shipping Crate [manufactured 1922-1926].

Having a Freshly painted pump is like having a New Baby in the house, they all look about the same, but I like having an antique old fart in the house, they have a personality.

Also a fact that an unrestored good pump may be anything including just the way it is. Once it is painted then the guy who wants it red will not pay as much if it is green. Found this out the hard way. Unrestored can be anything as long as you have the whole pump.

Because your top is not made for a globe, I'd bet it was made for Adv Glass option.
