    PS I'm not 100% sure the picture is showing up for anybody but me.
    I like boxes too. Itís all Iíve been going for these days. Often times Iíll skip over available units if they donít come with the original box. Except for the really rare stuff where beggars really canít be choosers.

    Who needs to see the light at the end of the tunnel when you have friends on CPF?

    I do. When I first get them, obviously I take them out to inspect and to also play for a bit. Then it goes back in the box typically when the next one arrives. Mind you. These are all acquired on the secondary market. I was a little late to the 47s collecting game and I terribly regret getting rid of some of my original acquisitions.

    That makes sense, since you always give the new one the most play. You've got some great offerings!

    The Lovely Mrs Gardiner and I took some time yesterday to dust and relocate the lights to a new location. Sorry for the subpar photograph. The shelf is located in a dark corner of the room sans much natural illumination.

    The first step is admitting you have a problem.

    The second step is transferring your problems to other people with problems.

    Hopefully, you'll be able to purchase another one. Until then -



    It was mid November, 2016, when a gentleman, CPF member from the great state of Texas offered to share (sell) the above pictured Quarks. When I open the package I was amazed to find the S12. Brother from Texas gifted it as a Christmas present.

    After many years of searching - A Polished 4Sevens Tuxedo arrived in today's mail. Once again I'm humbled by the generosity of fellow flashaholics.

    I know. Right? I was also amazed when it was offered to me. I've only seen one picture of one, and have been informed by a CPF member that David only produced satin Tuxedos. Not knowing any better, I decided the one that I had seen was a lego. Thanks for the reply. I really enjoy sharing this hobby of ours.

    As I was preparing to open the jewel case and present the new Tuxedo to The Lovely Mrs. Gardiner, I was making some anticipatory, angelic music with my vocal cords. My better 3/4's looked at me and laughingly stated - "You are so weird!"

    This is a page from 4sevens ďfirst/original?Ē catalog. Looks like it was offered or going to be offered. It seems as though the satins were only offered.

    fordcappy, The links are broken. I clicked on all of them, but nothing happened. I'll probably try again later. Still, it sure is a beautiful piece of art. Clicking around yesterday, I wasn't able to find much of anything on the polished Tuxedo. However, the gentleman that sold stated that he had two. So, I'm not sure they didn't actually offer a limited run of Polished Tuxedos.

    Rstype, That's a beauty and a great piece of CPF/Foursevens history.

    Left to right - Polished Titanium prototype / Solid Brass prototype / Polished Titanium production / Cheap, Powder Blue Tuxedo lego* / Satin Titanium Tuxedo / Polished Titanium Tuxedo

    * If you were a groomsman back in the 80's, you probably wore a cheap, powder blue tuxedo.
