Silly really as I knlw will do as Oscar Wilde said anyways and capitulate to temptation.

It is one of those things that is sold wrongly described and as such overpriced but adequate for what it really is. I got the last version of it already as it was around 1930 but this is the very first going by certain details and livery so I would have the both ends from about 1902 and 1930 which would be interesting albeit slightly superfluous given my limited space. Selling the one I got presently is out of the question due to condition and how it fits in but those oldest versions of latter accessories are so nice. Superior construction and I like the liveries better.
Fashion went to hell after 1910

Would it be wiser to or not or should I just do what my desires compel me to?

Poker dice are good for making decisions, you can roll the dice as many times as you want. It will be just you playing against yourself. In the end the result that you hoped for will win, and convince you of the correct course of action to take, i.e. the course that you knew you wanted anyway!!!  Go for it, and good luck  Thumbs up!

Petri, If you desire it and you can afford it, just buy it.
If not, you'll regret it.

And it's always fun if you see something that nobody else sees

I bought my a non fired Mamod traction engine in box with original trailer, and a spear canopy, for 20£  that way on eBay.uk.
The funny part was that I made a spelling mistake in the search engine.
I wrote Momod.
The funny part is that I wrote a mistake, but the other one who advertised it a Momod was the idiot
You can call it foreign writing mistake humor.
Anyway it was the bargain of the century

Cheers,
Danny

No no,, spend your millions on drugs instead..

Seriously,, After having spent a good bit of time together with you and learned to know you quite well, I know you have the capabilities to make up your own mind on what to get or not,,, and stick to it. My advice must be the boring approach to tell you to do what you wish and after,, not tell your mother anything about it.
