they are still for sale,go figure ..... oldest pats. around, excellent original condition and the best looking very early style for any early steamer or early gas car. I have a restored pair in nickel on my 1904 Stanley and a restored nickel pair is on the 1899 Loco at Harrahs national auto museum at Reno. No early better looking lamps of any make when nickeled anywhere or leave them this way for a preservation car
