Got my WP point in the mail today. I got serial number 499. I took myself out of the drawing for a low digit number and asked for the highest number available. I'd be interested in knowing what other purchasers received.

I have two WP's coming. I'm hoping at least one is a 2-digit. I'll let you all know when they arrive.

Hey, gang,

I seldom post here, but love checking in to see what is going on in the world of HL collectors.

My WP arrived today, and it is awesome! The detail is amazing. Best of all - I got #61! Out of maybe 100 HL's, I believe this is my first 2-digit ever.

Thanks everyone, and especially thanks to Dave!

Does anyone else that has received theirs have only half a ventilator ball?
Mine just arrived and has only half a ventilator ball. It is painted... so it came from Harbour Lights that way.

There is a mix up somewhere. The bottom of mine says 653 just list the poster above however on HL's website it lists it as 723. Which is correct?


Also I got 113

Lastly does anyone elses smell like plastic or paint or something. Mine is sitting a few feet away and I can smell it. Must just be the fumes from being made.

Looks like they'll have to redo the labels--HL 623 is the Bob Younger Memorial Tree per The Official Collectors Guide (P. 407).

My first WP arrived in yesterday's mail. I got #108. My second piece hasn't arrived but it probably should be here on Monday.

What a great HL! It is extremely well done and much different than any other HL. This is a great edition for any collection.

They are saying #653, Sandy, which according to my inventory list is available.. I think it was maybe originally assigned the 700 number and John will need to change the listing in the website.

I think all of the 600 numbers are being used now and that is why HL800 Loon Island NH and HL801 Sapelo Island Front Range are 800 numbers instead of 600 numbers..

I'm glad it's numbered 653 instead of 723.

The 723 number was picked by Tony. At the time the 600 series was all used up, which left a decision to use either a number in the 700 series or 500 series.

I'm glad they changed their decidion and used an unused number in the 600 series. If there now all used up, the next one will probably be in the 800 series, but lets not worry about that, lets enjoy this one now. cool


Glad to see everyone getting some good low numbers. I'm very happy with mine !!!

I got mine yesterday but didn't have time to open it until this morning- had a surprise 55th birthday party for Esther yesterday and was a bit preoccupied.

Mine is #70 and it looks just great. I have no complaints at all.

That double-box system worked great! I wonder whose idea THAT was???

My shipment arrived today & I think my extraordinary luck has begun to run down, but I am pleased my second lowest number is #81.

Thanks again to Dave for all his work to keep things moving along smoothly and as quickly as possible!

And thanks CF members for your votes for this "Great" Lakes piece. Also thanks again to all others involved in getting this piece done from Harbour Lights staff to CF members involved.

Don't think we'll be able to observe this light off shore from our boat for some time since it's so far away and our gas hog tows our boat.

Both of mine have come in - #59 and #195. One's for me and one's a gift. Obviously, I'm keeping the #59 for myself. smile This is by far the lowest number I have. (Actually, the 195 is lower than anything else I have, as well, so I won either way!)

Wonderful piece. I wish I would have discovered this forum before last year (I would then have the Erie Land Light), but I'm just happy to have found it in time to get Wisconsin Point.

Love it!

I was hoping soooo much for a # 1, that I got two of them :rolleyes: 101 and 235 arrived in White Lake today. towel I was fortunate enough to participate in the Founders Collection sale, so I now have several 'single digit' lights, and I'm very glad that many of you had this opportunity to add a new lowest number to your collection.

Again, many thanks for everyone who's hard work made this possible - always love another Great Lakes light.

I stopped home for a minute while I was fetching lunch and found my second piece on my door step. I didn't open the box yet but the outside number was 51. I'm pleased to have received a 2-digit for my second WP.

I was wondering if this might be someone's auto ship number. If it is and you have a 2-digit to trade, let me know. This offer is for the owner of auto ship #51 only.

My #48 arrived this morning and it is beautiful and very detailed. Love the coloring of the block and brickwork. Another success.
