How many types of 3001 [2×4 bricks]?  I have – no cross support, cross support, no cross support w/split tubes.

Dear MJB,

Bricklink.com lists five varieties:

http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=3001

http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=bhol04

http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=3001oldf1

http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=3001oldb

But this does not include variations of the studs themselves.  Multiple different styles of the “LEGO” text have been used in numerous directions.  Some bricks did not have any text on the studs.  Other test strikes have letters such as “C” on the studs.

Certain Bricklink sellers specialize in collecting these bricks.  I suggest contacting them for additional information on building your collection:
