I was browsing ebay to see if a pile of brass switch plates were worth and $$$.

And I come across this
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2548208025&category=1207

Holy smokes 130.89 USD.. youch..

My question is do poeple use this for restoration or as collectibles?

I guess it could be either, but £82 seems rather steep!

At these prices, I reckon a good rummage through my junk boxes should provide enough for a vacation in Bermuda!

£82.00 you can get modern equivalent switchs cheaper than that,, also comply with current BS numbers
