guys, don't forget it is a lighthouse as well!
if not more of one that of "Lady Liberty"
There have been many L.E. peices that are not even lights!
(I guess you can tell I'm partial)
pic of me and my son on the "LIGHT"

some of you metioned that you are buying pieces according to the asthetics! NOW, I know some of you, and a lot of collectors, and most buy for what the piece represents! Heck,,,some of you will take out a 2nd morgauge for that rare/early/low number piece!(of which most are ugly and plain! I mean, look how mis-represented, and out of proportion HATTERAS MOLD 1 is, but, if your like me,,I'd compromise most any principal to obtain! Ya, I know most of you old farts(me to) that have been been doing this for a long time/have just about everything, are more discriminating towards the new stuff!
LIGHT'N UP!(no pun intended) This memorial/light is B-E-A-UUUUTIFUL! I'd cut and paste different shots of it on here,(but, i got spanked for that), go on line and at least, check out the aerial shots of it! You'll fall in love!
Keep in mind, the Wright Brothers flew on the same grounds!
If H.L. can produce boats/balloons/bridges and bell towers, I believe this memorial is worthy of being a limited edition!
