It's a necessary piece for the UCS Millennium Falcon.
That tends to make any piece's price rise.

Having grown up in Sweden, I totally disagree. I was almost 40yo when I first
encountered glass-less windows! And I was shocked. It took a while for the LDraw
Community to convince me they weren't ex-windows, destroyed by children;
that those have actually been sold without glasses. To me, with glass is the
default, regardless size or age, and glass-less are Samsonite or Minitalia freaks
of nature.

  If you shop for windows at my store there should be no nasty surprises.

How can you say that? You haven't specified one single window, whether they
are made of ABS or CA. And a window has glass, or else it's just a window
frame!

  There are separate part nos. for normal / extended lip also.

So, if it is not specified, it should be assumed that it's "normal", ie short
sill? Maybe for you it is, but not for almost all Sellers I've bought from.
It's mixed.

  Buying Classic Windows is, like I wrote in the Subject line, nothing but a lottery.
You just don't know what you get if you buy for example a 27 - "Window 1
x 2 x 1", unless the seller is kind enough to specify.

First of all, I want to know if it's made of CA or ABS. A collector may want
CA windows as they are older. But me as a builder, I want ABS as most CA parts
are so badly bent you can't use them.

Secondly, I want to know if they have long (Extended) or short sill (Lip). BrickLink
offers two alternatives: Extended Lip or Undertermined Lip.

And, of course, I want to know if it really is a Window or just a Window Frame.
(IMO, a Window without Glass is not a Window at all, but just a Window Frame.
It's like a bicycle frame without wheels.)

For example, under the description 27 - "Window 1 x 2 x 1", sellers put ABS and
CA, long and short Lip, with and without Glass, and maybe only one out of 50
adds all the information that I need as a buyer. And of course the same goes
for all the other Classic Windows and Doors.

I assume that 27c01 "Window 1 x 2 x 1 with Glass" is supposed to be "Window 1
x 2 x 1 (new type) with Short Lip, with [Fixed???] Glass" (LDraw 27cc01). But
since the Lip is not specified, sellers can throw in any type of 27* with glass
without doing something wrong. But if we change the description, a lot of windows
will be misplaced in the wrong place, since it's been used as a bin for Undetermined
Type. But still, 20 and 27c01 are the only places you can put those with long
lips. So unless we create a new part number, the best thing would be to specify
all those unspecific Classic Windows. 39, 39c01, 27, 27c01, 39, 29c01, 7026,
31, 453, 645, and 646. And specify those that are without glass!

That would mean that for a while, a large number of unsorted windows will unfortunately
be mislabaeled.

But as it is now, the situation for me as a buyer is absolutely unacceptable.

I agree. A strong case for undetermined or umbrella entries can be made for some
newer parts where it won't benefit the seller in many cases to sort their
stock. However, when it comes to vintage parts, all entries need to be specific.

There is a LOT of work to do with the vintage windows in terms of providing better
images and creating defined entries. Not to mention the set inventories!

As far as ABS vs CA, I would be content with a checkbox or simply a conspicuous
pop-up warning when listing to include such information in a note. I can't
imagine any serious buyer not wanting to know this before purchasing.

Does "fixed" mean glued or something?
Or is it just that different contributors to the Catalog made different decisions?

Both windows have the glass permanently fixed (glued, non removable)

In the newer windows the glass is removable which makes switching glass color
easier.

Could you imagine going to school in Legoville? You have to accept the fact
that 2 dimensions are measure in 1 unit and the 3rd dimension is a different

The first two digits (the 1 x 1) are stud lengths for width and depth of the
part when standing upright. The last digit (the 5) is the height of the part
when standing upright and is measured in standard LEGO brick heights. It is somewhat
confusing calling all of the dimensions "in studs" when the height dimension
is "in bricks". Hope that clears that up for you.

Cheers,
Randy

Height is measured differently than length. The 5 represents 5 bricks tall.

My suggestion is to submit the alternate version to the catalog with as much
information as you can. A comparison photo is usually appreciated for these
types of entries.

The red ones probably come from sets like this:

 
Set No: 4657  Name: Fire Squad HQ
* 
4657-1 (Inv) Fire Squad HQ
144 Parts, 3 Minifigs, 2003
Sets: 4 Juniors: Town: Fire

and should have a different item number molded into the plastic.

Those with thin border all have item n° 4222 inside.
Those with the larger border are an older Version. They all come from Fabuland
sets and have no item n° underneath, only the mold numbers
