Re: Cobra Bathurst Globes
They did'nt have 1978 stamped on all of them, they had the date that they were made stamped on the back, being the year in a circle and a number of dots around the circle representing the month of casting. The Globes on my COBRA were stamped/casted in MAY 1976, my Cobra's No. is 207 and my mate's Cobra has Feb 1972 stamped on his Globes.
And yes you are correct the real Globes don't have the lip around the shoulder/rim of the front of ther wheel.
Hope this help's.
