Uniqueness

Hi um, so this question may not have an official answer, but in the case that it does, here goes. Was it stated that Albus Dumbledore's Deluminator is one of a kind, as in, he invented it and his was the only one in the world, and the creation was not mass-produced? (unlike time-turners, which at one point had many existing) I'm asking because imo, Rufus Scrimgeour made a rather big deal about Ron getting it, so if it could be bought elsewhere, why the fuss? Just because it previously was a property of Dumbledore?

I'm also asking this because I'm trying to figure out if a image category should be named "Images of Deluminators" (if not unique) OR "Images of the Deluminator" (if unique). Please share your thoughts. Thanks! --Sammm✦✧(talk) 00:31, March 25, 2019 (UTC)

Scrimgeour's full quote in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Chapter 7 (The Will of Albus Dumbledore) was: "'That is a valuable object,' said Scrimgeour, watching Ron. 'It may even be unique. Certainly it is of Dumbledore's own design. Why would he have left you an item so rare?'"
He appears certain that Dumbledore invented it, but not that it was the only one and that there was not any other product similar to it. It probably was the only one was since it was exceptionally rare, and no-one else ever had a product even similar to it. If it was the kind of product that had lots of them created, I doubt everyone would be using this one. I'm thinking "Images of the Deluminator" because I think this implies it was the only one for now. - Kates39 (talk) 10:40, March 25, 2019 (UTC)
