Are there any particualr types or vintages you are looking for, or do
not want to consider? Are you collecting them for the sake of
collecting them, or for particular components?
Where abouts are you, and would the components inside (namely the
Americum), cause shipping/border hassles?)

I can't help but dwell on that Reader's Digest story I read a while back,
about the young man who was playing with the Americium-241 from smoke
detectors in an attempt to create a fissionable mass. He didn't turn his
mother's garage into a crater, but he did manage to get her yard added to
the EPA Superfund cleanup list. Hmmm...
The Honewell TC89B is the subject of a recall. So, my guess is that
Nathaniel Lind might be requesting these units so that he can return them
for a free replacement.
The whole thing seems mighty fishy to me.
I suppose it is possible that someone may want to collect samples of every
smoke detector ever made.
For some interesting examples of weird things that people collect see:
