I'd have all of them! You can see why none survive, soon looked tatty when formica chipped moving them about and put into storage following decimalisation.
Climbed all over in damp storage , things stacked on top, all the contacts and relays rusting inside, and then scrapped when the owner died.
That's when storage costs were cheap too.

It's in the same vein as Crompton's Derby, or the various Whittaker-style Roulettes.

It would be great to have a list of what actually survives, and in what condition. That way, things would have a better chance of survival when storage becomes unavailable.

To start such a list, I have a (Pugh's) 2-position Rolitina.
