I was about to resurrect this old post myself with an updated photo, but you beat me to it!
Just waiting for one of the pieces to be returned from service this week, then should have a new "State of the Pacer Collection" (or is it now really a bracelet collection??) shot. . . . :P
Looking forward to it.

This ought to do it for me as far as Pacers go: I'm finally done!

(Of course, that's exactly what I said back on page one of this thread. :roll:)

This is the same Hotpoint Pacer that is shown in Rene's book — I'll classify it as truly rare, since he told me he has only ever seen 3 of these over the course of his career. . . .

Sorry Susan, but you still need to collect even more...….you need the wood dialed pacer, the one that runs backwards, the Elk's Club dial or a pearl dialed one. I bought the Wood dialed one and one that runs backwards from Rene.

The wood dialed one is in his book and hopefully he will chime in and tell the story of the employee that made the one that runs backwards with the backwards dial.

I'm glad this went to you! I've had two opportunities to buy one of these and wasn't able to make it happen. I'd have loved to own it. It's pretty extraordinary as far as I'm concerned.

I'd love to have the Sherwood one. That would look good in my collection. :)

It sure is hard to photograph the mother of pearl, isn't it?
