I know there's a bunch of us out there that don't collect LLOM's, but are die-hard regular LE size collectors. We are waiting for HL to release LE size versions of many of the LLOM only pieces.

I count 27, but there's a good chance I missed a few.

Here's my top 15 I would like to see released as a regular sized LE:

1- Tinicum Range - NJ
2- Finns Point - NJ
3- Five Fingers - AK
4- Wood Island - ME
5- Blackistone - MD
6- Huntington Harbor - NY
7- Point Cabrillo - CA
8- Watch Hill - RI
9- Point Lookout - MD
10- Delaware Breakwater - DE
11- Bailey's Harbor - WI
12- Matagorda - TX
13- Poe Reef - MI
14- Orient Point - NY
15- Isle Au Haut - ME (tie)
15- Sprint Point Ledge - ME (tie)

Ditto, these would be great. I'd buy 5 out of the 15 for sure - Watch Hill, Orient Point, Huntington Harbor, Point Cabillo and Point Lookout.

Tecnically, they did count Bailey's Harbor as an LE. Without going and digging it out, I do believe it had an LE number. It was done as a special event piece for our collector driven regional event in 2004.

"They will carry the HL674 number indicating they are a 'Special Limited Edition'."

Here you go Dave.

I'm aware of the current version. I bought one off JJ. Still like to see a reg size LE made. Maybe a future Christmas edition would look great.

I think you mean a "full" size replica instead of a LLOM scale version.

No remake of a light already made as an LE is the policy. The size the Bailey's piece was made was, IMO, very nice because it allowed them to have both the front and rear range included as part of the set at a very reasonable price. And, the fact that the pieces were designed to fit together was a first and only for HL while allowing the collector to know exactly how they were lined up relative to each other.

If you want a tradtional, larger LE of a light from Bailey's Harbor, the Old Bailey's Harbor would be a great one with its bird cage lantern room (but it has not been made - yet - as a LL).

I agree with Dave. The Old Bailey's Harbor light would be nice since there aren't that many with bird cage lantern rooms. It could be shown in its nice day rather than the way it looks today.

I consider the HL674 Bailey's Harbor a limited LLOM. Say's Little Light of Mine on the bottom. So a regular sized limited edition should still be done at some point.

And if it is considered a true LE, I don't know if I believe no more remakes of LE's, unless this is a new policy since last years "Sankaty on the Move" piece!

My Bailey's Harbor has nothing on it to suggest it's an LLOM-series piece.

The bottom of my pair reads (in an oval with curved type on top and bottom and straight type in the middle):

---

Door County Wisconsin Event

460/500 (hand-written) Bailey's Harbor
Front/Rear Range
HL 674

Distributed by Younger and Associates
Made in China (C) 2004

---

It also came in a regular, LE-type light-blue Portland Head box, with the logo and URL in red and the bottom-of-piece sticker stuck on the end, as is usual for an LE.

In my book, it's a 100% legitimate Limited Edition, which was just made in the LLOM scale because of the type of the piece.

And, IMHO, if Harbour Lights are going to be rereleasing any LEs, they'd be best off to choose some more famous ones that have a chance at wide-range sales, instead of a relatively-obscure pair of range lights.

I'm with you Greg. There is nothing to suggest they are a LLOM other then the physical size.

I dug mine out to take a look, and I am wrong. It does not say Little Light of Mine on the bottom, I apologize for posting incorrect info.

But, I'm still in the group that would love to see a regular sized LE version of this obscure, but very special lighthouse. A regular sized LE would show some amazing detail that is missed on the current LLOM sized version.

An LE of Point Lookout has been a request for a long time. Lets hope for 2010!

Of course Wood Island, Five Fingers, Point Cabrillo, Watch Hill, Isle Au Haut, Huntington Harbor, and just about everything on my LLOM list is wished by somebody on the forums.

My number one is Tinicum Range!

Point Lookout, MD. A beautiful lighthouse with a good ghost history.

While you are waiting for a LE of Point Cabrillo, you can make your own.

https://www.fiddlersgreen.net/models/buildings/cabrillo.html

They have other lighthouse models, but this one is beautiful. Especially if you pay attention to detail and print the lantern glass on glossy photo paper.

Paul, I made a wooden frame (balsa wood) for inside the base, to keep everything square, did all cutting with an exacto blade, and I used paint to touch up cut edges. The more time you put into them, the better they look. Have fun!

Thanks Laura
I just ordered the lighthouse set for my grand kids...it will make nice winter projects. They always want an art project going on, so this is perfect!...and besides, we just came back from climbing Sturgeon Bay Canal Station Light this past weekend and seeing 9 other lights, so they are pumped.
I bought them a folding table from Sam's Club....just their size and will be fixing a portion of the basement up for them.

Phillygirl,
An "LE" is my abbreviation for the regular size Harbour Lights Limited Editions.

Glad you asked !!!

Thanks, Now can you tell me what a "legacy" is. The more I browse here, the more I realize how much I don't know!

Presently working on a short article on the Old and New Cape Henry Lighthouses for Yahoo's Associated Content, and I think I'll do another one in January on three or four of NY lights on Lake Erie.
