Okay guys I am not a globe person but like this one because it seems to be authentic. It is far from perfect but better then the only other one I have seen where the red had washed out in the central logo, The glass insert is large and measures approximately 16 and 1/2 inches in diameter with a snap ring holding it in place. The glass is gone from the back. The globe glass has what appears to be residual cardboard on the inside from its storage days. The can is metal and measures approximately 7 inches across the base. I have searched and only seen a couple of similar ones but may not be looking in the right place for value. Any idea of age and value plus or minus. THANKS!

I'm not a globe person either, but I bought the gasoline globe book, and it lists 2 types of 16.5" lenses. One is a milk glass cast lens (1920-1922) but it looks more red in the center than yours. The other looks just like yours and is dated from 1920-1934, rarity of 3, and valued at 800-1250, but that value is for a complete globe, not a single lens. hope this helps ya.

bad lens really hurts it. I would say if you got $500 retail that would be good for you. Body is worth $250-300 IMO. Hope this helps
