A couple of years ago a lens, similar to the Joyce Beacon, sold on e-bay for around $46,000. It was in mint condition and had the Stockholm face plate.
Thanks for that interesting site, Dave!

Great site Dave - thanks for posting it.

I even enjoyed looking at some of the model boats featured on the site. If I ever ran out of things to keep me busy (like that will ever happen) I would love to build a model boat.
