    It is definitely stamped not laser etched, does not have do not remove on the switch, however it is like 4DMag-liteÂ’s silver 1st gen with the plastic holder for the bulb. It looks brand new, here it is with a pink 3rd gen.

    That's a beautiful light! Nice find! I was watching that one on the bay just to see what it was going to go for.

    Hey LiftdT4R if you do a build thread on your red 3D mag I’ll read it.

    Here is a mint 7D I got recently from a fellow CPF member.


    It is a patent pending, low serial number.



    The 7D maglite really is a monster flashlight, with modern battery technology I doubt we will ever have a light manufactured this long again. I feel lucky I was able to get such a nice example.

    Awesome! I'm working on another light, a 4D, with a warm 3 mode drop in now. I'll snap some pics during the build and I'll prob have something for my blog and CPF put together in February. I've built 3 lights total now with my new warm drop ins, a 1990 Red 3D, a NIB 1988 Black 2D, and I've converted my daily user 2001 3D that I've owned since new.

    Shes's a beaut!! That's the cleanest 7D I've ever seen! The 7Ds are far and away the most collectible Maglites and reach the highest $ amounts. You're right, I doubt we'll see anything like this anytime soon as batteries pack more energy into smaller spaces and LEDs get to be more efficient. I always thought they were similar to old cars and trucks with gigantic engines. My old many had a 454 cu in GM pickup in 1990. The latest GM we got is almost half that size engine and is way faster and much more fuel efficient.

    Love those lime greens!!! I wish Mag would make some off beat colors in their newest lights. Just goes to show the excesses of the late 90s, early 2000s. Here's my small lime green collection:



    I'm just missing a 3D as far as I can tell. I'm not sure if Mag ever did an AAA Mini Maglite in Lime Green.

    I have a 2D, 3D, 2C and 2AA Lime Green but not the Solitaire. Although I own some I don't collect 2AAA and Solitaire Maglites.

    What's crazy is the 2Cs I see quite a bit and even the 2Ds pop up occasionally. The 3Ds seem to be the toughest to find. That's the opposite of all other Maglites where the C cells are the rarest by far.

    Since there's some action here I'll post something you might not see every day. It's not one but two Maglite Marquis! There were only about 10,000 of these produced and sold for May in 1988. The name was changed due to complaints by retailers. I'm always amazed because I don't think the name Marquis or Solitaire would influence my decision to buy the light. These were also made in Silver. I've only ever seen 1 silver and maybe 6 or 7 black versions.

    If you have an extra 500 bucks lying around there is a silver marquis on the popular auction site. Love this thread, I’m not a huge maglite fan but I’ve always owned one and appreciate the history lesson

    It's actually mostly from Don Keller, an old machinist at Mag, and other collectors I've dealt with over the years. I'm just the repository for it but glad ya enjoy it though. I still have a couple lights that I haven't posted yet. One of which I don't think has been seen before. My work is usually dead over the winter but I'm actually super busy the last couple years since the winters have been so mild.

    I saw that one but it looks black. I'm always amazed at what people ask for lights. The prices can be really far off either way. My one Marquis is brand new and unused and the other one looks a heck of a lot nicer than the one on flea bay. If I could get a grand for them tomorrow I would finish off the bike I'm building! 500 hundo is more than any 7D I've seen sell granted the Marquis is much rarer than a 7D but which one looks cooler sitting on a shelf?

    Nice marquis lights liftdT4R. I agree 500 seems a bit steep.





    Here is a beautiful, new in box 7C I just got from another CPF collector. It is the store a bulb end cap, box dated 87.

    I agree I have seen more C cells than D cells in lime green. Although I am not sure my solitaire is lime green it might be kelly green.

    Wow, nice 7C and Lime Greens. I've been looking for a 3D Lime Green for a while and I see you have 2. Lol, I'll have to see what I have doubles of if you're interested in a swap.

    You've gotta do a group shot soon too!

    There is a guy on the forums that still has some NIB 7c last I heard. Go back and look through this thread. They are all standing on end in a photo... must be a dozen of them.

    saved you the trouble
    find the user named 'tminus12'

    I did a search on user 'tminus12' but it seems there is no user on this forum with this name?

    It is borrower, I PM'd him a while back about one. He is a little slow to respond because he's not on here a lot anymore.

    I saw the picture of his 'stash' a while back and ignored it. The rational side of me said that 1) it was very nice but 2) they are all 6c... there could NOT be that many NIB 7c in one place. I picked up one about 9 months ago from him.

    I got a nice Red Maglite 2C from a friend. I've never seen a 2C in this color before. He found this one on a flea market!

    Super sweet!!!! That's the only red incan C I've ever seen. The colors in the C cells are soooo tough to come by! It looks like that's a laser etched bezel, if so it's from 1990 or 1991.

    Nice lights folks! I haven't been on here much in a while. Hope everyone is having a good new year.

    LOVE that red 2C! That is the first one I've actually seen.

    So I've been using the auction site for 15+ yrs for hundreds of items, and now have my first lost package. Guess what it is. A Maglite! An older TM bezel black 2C, with the flat end cap. I got it for a low offer because the tube was a little marked up, so I was gonna put a good LED in it and use it to bang around in one of the trucks. Maybe even do a paracord wrap on the tube.

    So cross your fingers for me. Maybe it will still show up. It was mailed a week or so before the end of the year, and went off the tracking radar on Dec. 31. The seller did a mail inquiry, so we'll see what happens. Not the end of the world I guess. I'm glad it wasn't the 2 vintage Buck knives I just got.

    That red 2C is the first red Incan C Cell I have seen. I did not think they existed, excellent find.
