Default Jensen Model 70 Steam

While at the “FLEA” market this weekend (Fri-Sat-Sun) , I came across a guy with a “FEW” Jensen #70, like new, model, Steam Engines. Not really my thing, but I inquired anyway, and after some price negotiations I walked away with one. When I got home I looked up the price , and should have bought all five of them . I went back the next day and of course he wasn’t their . The following day I decided to go to another, larger “FLEA” market, that I go to on occasion, and after walking the whole place, on the last row, there he was. To make the story short, I walked away with the remaining four (4), discounted a bit more. All of them are like new, and don’t show any signs of ever being used. Even though there were no boxes, and a few pieces (which I can easily get) were missing, I got another, good, “FLEA” market buy, while having "FUN" , even in NJ on the way through .

Nice catch! I search for Jensen engines at two flea markets every weekend and have yet to find one.
