 la08 
Railroad NYWS&B
Size 5 3/8" tall globe
Type molded, square end panel, fancy lettering
Condition Very Good 

This is not a common globe from the West Shore. The lettering is very strong. It has a square corner panel and an extended base. It is a standard 5 3/8" tall globe. The letter casting is very good. The lettering is very strong. There are some manufacturing flaws near the top rim. There is one minor fleck off the top inside. This is not uncommon in older cast globes. Any West Shore cast globe is a good find. There seem to be more frames than globes out there. The consignor has been collecting since the 1960s.
