    I've added some new ones since I took these pics. I will try to get updates for you guys at some point.


    Pink*, Pink*, Red, Red [Winston], Dark Red*, Orange, Gold*, 24k Grail*, Anthrazit*, Pewter [Equipp.com], Unknurled Pewter, Copper, modamag Spring Floral, Lime Green, Dark Green, Dark Green [John Deere]


    Ice Blue, Shimmer Blue, Shimmer Blue, Hellblau*, Blue*, Blue*, Blue, Blue, Blue [Pepsi], Midnight Blue, Midnight Blue, Blue/Purple, Light Purple, Purple, modamag Golden Lace, Unknurled Fuschia, Hot Pink, Hot Pink [Breast Cancer Awareness]


    Silver, Silver [Hasselblad], will Nickel Knurled, will Nickel Unknurled, will Nickel Grooved, Gray, Gray [Mercedes], trivergata HAIII, trivergata HAIII, Black*, Black, Black [US Forest Service], Black [X-Files Movie], Unknurled Black [Sony]


    Custom Maglites from CPFers: will: Nickel Solitaire, Nickel AAA, Nickel Knurled, Nickel Unknurled, Nickel Grooved, Silver/Rosewood, Silver/Cocobolo, modamag: Spring Floral, Golden Lace, trivergata: HAIII, HAIII


    This is the only one of these I've ever seen. The side of the box says: 414-000-558. The front of the box says:

    The Twenty-Eighth of April, Nineteen Hundred and Ninety-Two
    GEORGE BUSH
    THE PRESIDENT'S DINNER

    Courtesy of Mr. & Mrs. Anthony Maglica
    and the Family of Mag-Lite® Companies


    What other companies are in the "Family of Mag-Lite® Companies" anyway?


    Midnight Blue/Red Soli [Marines: The Few. The Proud.], USA Flaglite, Blue [President's Dinner], Red 2001 Inaugural [Inaugural Seal 2001 - The 54th Presidential Inaugural - Celebrating America's Spirit Together - George W. Bush - Richard B. Cheney], Americana Series; that's dust on the blue one. :-(


    Maglite Racing, NASCAR Victory, NASCAR Select, NASCAR Spectrum, Red #8 Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Red #24 Jeff Gordon [DuPont Racing], Red #94 Bill Elliott [McDonalds], Orange #20 Tony Stewart, Green #5 Tony LaBonte [Kelloggs], Green #18 Bobby LaBonte


    Blue #6 Mark Martin [Valvoline], Blue Knurled #45 Kyle Petty [Petty], Blue #3 Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Blue #24 Jeff Gordon [Pepsi Racing], Blue #31 Mark Skinner, Blue Knurled #99 Jeff Burton [SuperGard/Citgo], Blue Knurled #6 Mark Martin [Valvoline], Midnight Blue #2 Rusty Wallace, Midnight Blue #88 Dale Jarrett, Fuschia #99 Jeff Burton [Exide], Black #3 Dale Earnhardt, Black Knurled #28 Ricky Rudd [Halvoline Racing]


    A couple notes:

    * means Ontario bezel

    My Unknurled Fuschia and NASCAR Jeff Burton #99 are absolutely identical. I would be willing to bet the Fuschias were overstock from these. If that's the case, my question is where do we find the overstock for the other ones?

    4 of the NASCAR lights I have came in clamshell packaging with Hot Wheels cars. Those 4 are Red 94 Bill Elliott [McDonalds], Green #5 Terry Labonte [Kellogs], Blue #6 Mark Martin [Valvoline], Fuschia #99 Jeff Burton [Exide]. If you notice, these are the only 4 that have corporate sponsor branding on the head.

    A few of these NASCARS are knurled, you'll notice. I don't know what's up with these. The ebayer I purchased them from claimed to be a Maglite distributor and said the knurled ones were official, but put out right at the end of the NASCAR lights' distribution. None of these came with paper sleeve packaging, so perhaps that's exactly the case. I have no idea.


    Links:

    Some of the CPF custom lights in this post are still available. You can support these fine folks here:

    will's Custom Nickel Plated Minimag Thread - sold out, but maybe if you express an interest, he'll do another run. Just noticed today: new thread here.

    will's Custom Wood Minimag Thread - sold out, but I believe these are currently still being offered by request.

    modamag's Custom Splash Anodized Minimag Thread - still available, and I'm not sure why. I'm not sure how these could be any nicer. If they don't go soon, I'm going to wind up with a couple more of them.

    FiveMega's Golden MiniM*g - These are gorgeous. 24k gold plating over full polish nickel plating.


    Help A Brother Out!

    We can make a fair deal, and on top of that, I will make a donation to CPF or the charity of your choice in your name for rarities. I am still looking for:

    Weinrot
    Bronze
    Lime Unknurled
    GreenLED
    Blue-Green Ontario
    Charcoal - found!

    Blue 2005 inaugural - found!
    1989 AAA inaugural - found!
    "MAG" Flaglite - found!

    Custom CPF lights from old runs, especially splash anodized
    Ontario bezel lights
    Many corporate branded lights
    Unbranded, unknurled lights of all colors

    Added FiveMega's Golden MiniM*gs to my link list of available CPF customs in post 6.

    I got a chance to meet and speak with FiveMega at the SoCal CPF party last weekend. I learned something about those gold minis that I didn't know. I meant to share it with you guys sooner but it totally slipped my mind. Those gold minis are actually double plated. Apparently gold doesn't bond well with aluminum, so in order to be gold plated, these first had to be nickel plated.

    Naturally, my immediate response was to request swirl/splatter lights gold over nickel.

    I just thought that was an interesting factoid and that some of you would find it interesting too.

    How about a blast from the past?



    For those who don't know or haven't seen this photo, this was from the 1st run of splash anodized minimags arranged by CPF member YAESUMOFO.

    The new crown jewel in my collection:



    This belonged to my buddy and co-worker of 18 years who was killed out in the truck yard loading a trailer. This tragic event took place on October 12th of last year.

    It took me this long to ask his wife if I could have one of his lights. I finally got up enough courage and she actually gave me the light he wore everyday. Black minimag with a simple led upgrade.

    Thought I'd share this one with my fellow collectors.

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Thank you very much for sharing that special special light with us.

    From a strictly Minimag related standpoint, I really love heavily used Minimags! There is a lot of potential in collecting the beat up ones, I think.

    Do the 'MAG' Flag Maglite's typically say, "America's Choice," on the reverse side? Off hand I can not remember what mine says, but I just bought the one shown below and so I thought I would share.

    Sorry for the terrible pictures, I had to use the seller's as I have not yet received it.

    Not that I have ever seen. I've got 2. One says USA and the other says MAG.

    From the graphic and wording I figure that's a custom printing straight from mag or it has been reprinted afterwards by another shop.

    I picked up a few Mini’s this past weekend. The back of the package did not list the color so I will go to the experts here.
    The first one. Is it purple or violet?
    The second one. Fuscia, hot pink?

    The third one looks like the one in turbodog's photo, post #1, bottom row, fourth from the left. What color is that?
    My photo seems a bit darker than actual color.

    I'm saying

    purple, as there was no violet anyway

    hot pink, if the photo's really darker than real life

    dark blue maybe? I've seen more tint variance in blue/dark blue than the other colors.

    if they are from Wal*Mart

    they had a blue that looked violet,
    hot pink
    blue shimmer

    by the way - I seem to get the best color rendition by taking pictures with a gray background, and, something else in the picture. I have been putting some silk flowers towards the back. I have Kodak's easy share software, it's free. I sometimes have to use the enhance feature to get the picture to lighten up.
    Now I can see the darkness .

    Thank you Will.
    Now I know two of what I got. Your'e right on Wally World. That's where I bought the "Hot Pink" and "Blue Shimmer".

    I'll try the grey background.

    BTW, I see you have a separate Voilet and Purple.

    Hmm. My Blue Shimmer minimag doesn't look at all like the 3rd light in Sunspot's picture.

    Sunspot's light looks kind of greenish on my screen. I would have guessed it's a darker shade of "Jade Green".

    My Blue Shimmer doesn't have any green.

    The package mine came in (several years ago) said "Blue Shimmer". Nowadays the Blue Shimmer packages in my local Wal-Marts contain Purple or Hot Pink lights.

    This is probably the wrong thread to post this in, but I couldn't find a D-cell Mag section. I apologize if I'm off topic. I was just wondering if any of you Mag collectors have one of these. It's a Mac Tools 2D Mag, I bought it back in '96 or so when I was a mechanic. I used it for performing safety inspections of vehicles. I'm just curios if it's rare, or just a really old Mag.
    Btw, the Mac Tools logo isn't painted on, it's etched.
