Hey Dave, your pump is cool. I should have not sold it to my friend and the other day he was saying he should have not sold it. Glad it is in a good home.

I picked up this Red Crown thermometer for $75.00 on one of my road trips and the Sinclair HC sign (that's a 9.5) for a steal at Iowa Gas after one of the experts in the hobby passed because it wasn't good enough???

Hands down it has to be my MFA Oils and Greases globe. It took two years of me breaking Jarvis down before I got it.

Hard to narrow it down to one so I'm posting both my Wayne 60 and Erie U603 and the station in Western, Nebraska where the Erie was in service as a new pump in the late 20s.

I had a great year!!!! The swap meets were good to me, but my favorite buys of the year were these 2 therms I plucked off eBay. They don't show up often, so I'm lucky to bring them home!!!
