A few years ago I purchased a pair of original Zephyr round globe lenses. The lenses appeared to be standard 13 1/2 in. When I tried to put them in a standard repop plastic collar they were about 1/2 in short. What would be the correct collar for these slightly over sized lenses. Thank you Old Gas in advance. Ron

The original round Zephyr globe lenses with a white background, a circular red swirl and Zephyr lettering on an angle are a little less than 13 1/4" for a gill type globe body in my experience. Originals have been found in red ripple gill bodies.

Some collectors have had success sanding down the mating edges of plastic Capco body halves to make a work-around smaller diameter. But to display the best, a correct sized gill body would be needed.
