Congratulations Maubejr

What I learned about collecting Harbour Lights is that patience can bring back an opportunity that you missed in the past.

As a collector of 22 years I have seen opportunities come back on HL deals that I thought I would never have a second chance on again. Sometimes it takes years, but if you keep your eyes open and keep searching usually you will get another shot.

Did you nab some of those eBay deals last week on the newer Christmas lights?

Thanks Dave!!! I DO have one lens but I think my next adventure is getting all the Historic Buildings! I have 4 of them I believe but these are very confusing because they changed from HB to CLH and another one I think. I believe this is the list of Historic buildings....

HB901 Fort Washington Bell Tower
HB902 Portland Observatory
HB903 Mount Greylock War Memorial
HB904 Pemaquid Bell Tower
CLH-101 Halfway Rock
HB906 Old North Church
CSTM01 Cape Henry Memorial Cross
CR101 NY Skyline
CR102 Baltimore Harbor

If this is wrong then maybe someone can let me know?

First place I looked Rich but still so confusing with the different numbers and to which pieces are actually part of the "Historic Buildings" series.

This is from my Volume 2:

HB900 NOT ASSIGNED
HB901 Fort Washington Bell Tower, MD 12/01/01 02/01/02 6” $54.00 1,200/1,200
HB902 Portland Observatory, ME 04/01/03 12/31/05 7” $55.00 1,800/1,800
HB903 Mt. Graylock War Memorial, MA (Lit) 01/01/04 02/01/06 8” $65.00 1,200/1,200
HB904 Pemaquid Bell Tower, ME 06/01/04 10/01/12* 7” $75.00 900/ 900
HB905 Halfway Rock, ME (See CLH101below) 06/01/05 12/31/05 6” $60.00 1,200/ 600
HB906 Old North Church, MA (lighted) 06/01/07 12/30/09 7” $100.00 1,500/1,500
HB907 NOT ASSIGNED
HB908 NOT ASSIGNED
HB909 Cape Henry Cross, VA (See CSTM01 Below) 06/01/07 12/31/10 5” $55.00 1,607/1,607
CLH101 Halfway Rock, ME (Original Issue #) 06/01/05 12/31/05 6” $60.00 1,200/ 600
CR601 Acrylic Baltimore Harbor (Original Issue #)
(See CR102 above) 10/01/01 10/31/01 5” $20.00 500/ 500
CSTM01 Cape Henry Cross, VA (Original Issue #) 06/01/07 12/31/10 5” $55.00 1,607/1,607

As you can see, except for Halfway Rock and Cape Henry Cross which had their original nomenclatures changed from CLH101 and CSTM01 respectively, to HB905 and HB909 to coincide with the HB (Historic Buildings) there were only 6 Historic Building produced ( Halfway Rock & Cape Henry Cross have 2 different issue nomenclatures but are identically the same).

The initial issue of Acrylic Baltimore Harbor nomenclature was CR601 but was later changed to CR102 after the issue of the Acrylic New York Skyline was issued as CR101. This kept the skyline pieces in the same nomenclature group. THEY ARE NOT CLASSIFIED AS HISTORIC BUILDING!

Hope this clears things up!

PS: I currently have a CR101 New York Skyline, one of 300 made, w/box and signed by Nancy Younger for sale for $75.00 plus shipping. If you are interested contact me at flacoastie@embarqmail.com to work out details.

The HB series is a good choice. They are a challenge to collect but not impossible to find. I personally would add the CW101 Model 1863 Civil War Cannon to your List to collect.

It was not intended to be a part of the Historical Building series but was to be a new series of Civil War replicas that was being tried by HL to extend their figurine production into a new area to increase business. Civil War market is of much interest in our country. However, for some reason(s) it apparently never took off. According to Harry Hines only 300 were made.

Now this one may be hard to find.
