Since eBay is flooded with lighthouses and not those fancy lightbulbs called Fresnel lens. I decided to do another top ten.
This time I took the time to give my comments on the lights .
1. Harbour Lights Lighthouse Cedar Point Sandusky Ohio #357
This one is definitely a sleeper. One of my favorites and I feel comfortable giving it a value of $300. Yes it did just went for over $500 last week, but remember there are 2500 of these made and I feel they will start coming out of the wood work. This bid was actually in July and the one for $567 was just last week. So it is still climbing. I would like to see another one go for Over $500 before I say that’s its value.
2. Harbour Lights HL820 Sentinel Island, Alaska w/ Box and COA, VERY RARE
I have no problem with valuing this one from $200 to $300. Very rare and hard to find. Also a neat looking and unusual light. The only down for this one is that Alaska lights are not the most collectable. The person that would want this one would be a collector of them all, or actually visited the light. I guess a few would want it because it is a neat looking lighthouse.
3. Harbour Lights HL389 Key Largo (FL) Limited Edition Lighthouse 2010 - Excellent
This is definitly undervalue. I would put it in the $350 to $500 range. But if you look closly at the light you can see why it was devalued. There is no box and it was damaged. So with that in consideration that $261.86 is appropriate.
4. Harbour Lights RARE 84/ 500 HL674 Bailey's Harbor (WI) Door Co Event 2004 Signed
The Bailey’s Harbour . This light has been a surprise from the very beginging, Well known and a popular collectable. Usually running from $75 to $125. I would think this is a tad high except it being the special inhanced version of only 120 made and has not been on ebay for a while. I would put its top value at $150.
5. Harbour Lights HL397 Saddleback Ledge Lighthouse (ME) 2011 Limited Edition 397
This one of the 550 lighthouses. That alone makes this light worth between $150 to $300. Very relistic looking lighthouse but it an’t a Florida Light. I have no problem with $172.16 . I think it will be a while before it hits $300
6. Harbour Lights HL102 Cape Hatteras (NC) Lighthouse 1991 #102R Signed - Excellent
Definitely the going price. Still a popular collectable and everyone’s favorite. I have no problem with saying a Cape Hatteras’s value is $150 to $300 even though $150 has been the going rate for a long time.
7. Harbour Lights HL370 Carysfort Light. Fl. , Very Rare w COA and Box
Going price, but I think it will keep going up. Every time this light is on eBay it keeps inching up. This is a visible light to the public, if it is a clear day and you use a telescope. It is 6 miles of the coast of Key Largo. The fact it is a Florida Light and has a production of 550, this light will only go up in value.
8. Harbour Lights HL363 Cape San Blas (FL) Limited Edition Lighthouse 2008 - Nice
Probably the going price but just because it is a Florida Light with a low production of 1500 I would put its value at $150 to $300. Even though this is a Florida lighthouse with a very attractive skeleton lighthouse and a modest looking southern farmhouse style lighthouse keeper’s house. It is not an overly popular lighthouse. The reason is that most lighthouse lovers have not seen it in person. It is gated and still operated by coastguard (as far as I know) . The only way to see this light is to hike around the back by the gulf for miles and even then to get close you would have to go on no trespassing property and look through an 8 foot high fence. .

Going Price is $150 to $200, but $150 the more gong rate. This is Harbour Lights first Fresnel lens and the only one that doesn’t light up.(Right?) Made 4,000 of these and for some reason it is still in demand.
