I have a couple Mail Pouch thermometers already and would like to collect a couple more. I'm looking in particular for an earlier porcelain version, and the smaller version. But I would be interested in seeing what you have as there are several versions. I'll post what I have here in a few.

My understanding is original Mail Pouch therms have a cookie cutter edge and the repops have a slight lip. Anyone know about this?

This is the only 7ft. tall one I have ever seen. All the others that I have seen in this version were 6 ft.

Anyone out there have a bulb for the seven footer or know where I could find one? I have one of these thermometers but it is missing the bulb.
