It certainly looks real to me as well. Sometimes people just don't know what their selling. Will, what makes you think it isn't the holy grail?

I didn't want to report the auction on the forum in hopes someone would get a good deal on it- but $6.45!!!! Wow! I'm in shock.

the box looks like the presentation box without the gray insert, the paperwork in the back is the same brochure that you get with every MM in the presentation box. The description says aluminum.


but - I have been known to be wrong .

I now think that may be the real deal.

The presentation box of my gold-plated is black, not gray. I don't recall it coming with paperwork, but my gold-plated MM has a slightly atypical story.

It looks like a black velvet box to me. Also the real gold came with the paperwork same as shown in the auction- here's a photo of my real gold:

Same thing, but who knows.....

That's good.

But, *I* sent an email to the *BUYER* with an attractive offer.

It will probably take you a week or so to read thru this thread- if you're going to buy the set do so here- great price on it. www.action-lights.com

Good luck hunting.

BTW- turbodog, your offer was generous, but no thanks!!!!!

Beautiful work Will. Is the fourth light on the left built on a MM LED?

Yes that is a MagLED, I did a few. I can do the 2AA version, not the 3AA - too long for my mini-lathe..

I think my collection of the Mini-Mags is reasonably complete. I have been getting custom versions lately - splash anodize, nickel plate and such.

Does anyone think that Maglite will come out with new colors? or is everything now going over to the MagLEDs?

Update:

I have been in email correspondence with the buyer.

1. It is indeed a real gold one
2. The original owner used it, the new owner reports wear and worn-off gold on the tailcap.

Although the buyer didn't know the difference between the 2, it's not for sale.

I never did hear back from the ebay seller -
