      I've been collecting for about 15 years. I guess my favorite is the
      Double Lever with the X Model a close second. The best story is the
      guy that put a Vibro on eBay saying it was a POS. The base was pretty
      ratty but the upper works were in good shape. I got it for 45 bucks
      and had the base glass beaded and refinished it, cleaned up the upper
      works and ended up with a very nice LEFT HANDED VIBRO. It is the
      third one in my collection and left handed Vibroplexes are fairly rare.

        Kev,
        I replied already but it appears it didn't take. Been collecting for
        about 15 years. Favorite bugs are my Model X and Double Lever. Best
        story is the guy that had a key on eBay that he called a POS. Base
        was ratty but the upperworks were good. Got it for 45 bucks and
        refinished the base after getting it glass blasted. Nice looking LEFT
        HANDED key when I got finished. Only have two others in my
        collection. Factory Left Handed keys are kinda rare.
