I've got one - but that's all I need.

I would like another 70, 71 pump though.

Later . . .

there was one for sale on here a couple years ago Chris, it also was a nice original, they don't come along to often, your looking at around
3000.00 to buy a minty original one I would think.

I've never seen an original one.
I do have two original station lighters.

The one we sold I think went for around $3000 or so years back (My dad had his sitting in a tool box, no idea what it was at the time.) There was one on ebay with a blue inner coating that is gone now. They were pretty fragile and not mounted well, so not surprising few survived. We will eventually make more reproductions but we are currently out of stock.

Paul- the ones you reproduce are they made of a plastic?

Hi Chris, they are urethane plastic yes. It's good resin though, stuff they use to simulate glass. I do have the Erie top side lettering too, still have that in stock.

This is my 70 with an original glass top and Skelly lettering I fabricated. It's nearly impossible to tell one of Pauls tops from an original setting on a pump.I had one of his before I found my original one. If I wasn't a purist (crazy) I would've kept the plastic one along with a wad of cash.....GB
