I've been at the GPA collecting thing for a few years now. Here is a photo of where I'm at with my single-burner stoves (one is not a GPA), along with my typical blog post: https://sklcolorado.wordpress.com/2019/08/11/single-burner-stove-roundup-2019/

It's always fun to see what everyone else is doing, so let's see some photos!

Nice collection!  I dug out a few Peak 1 stoves this evening to consider trading.

I have 40 singles but that includes a couple of canister stoves.  Here's what I usually have on display.  I have another 500 in the truck and a half dozen 502s scattered around.

Here's my single burner stoves.  Although it's not a very large collection, I'm comparing burn efficiencies among these stoves.  The first repetition of the test is done.  I'll be posting the results soon.

Nice collections folks. I can't compete, I've only got 1 MSR XGK from back in the 80s that I use for motorcycle camping.

Collections big or small are fine by me. I am missing one 502, two M-1950s, one frankenburner (200A/520) and an Optimus 323. Hopefully, I'll have those ready by next time. 
I skipped the two burners, leaving them for another post.

Choose one stove??? Yikes!!!

First, I could narrow it to my top three:
M-1942
400A
502

Next,
M-1942 is great construction and an excellent boiler, though you can cook on it, the flame is really difficult to adjust. It is also noisy. Good for backpacking and uses little fuel, it seems. Perfect for sub freezing temps.

400A is a good all around stove for boiling and actual cooking with a good flame adjustment and a good size for backpacking. It is not a very loud stove, but it is a little hungry when it comes to fuel consumption during warmup.

502 is a good all around stove for boiling and cooking with excellent flame adjustment, but a little bulky for backpacking. It's nice and quiet and seems to work well in a breeze.

Given my activities right now, I'd stick with the 400A if I could only have one. But, out of the 40+ stoves I have, I'd keep these three if I had to unload the rest.

Great answer Steve!

In the end, there are always the one or two (or three🙂)...for whatever reason, that we cherish just a little more than the others. 🙂

Not much to add as I'm a fairly new collector, but a chance to take my first group shot.
Not strictly gpa as there's 2 alcohol burners lurking. 
20190813_095843-1024x576.jpg 
Only 4 Coleman, British Made silent Solus and Canadian roarer Solus behind their 530 and 500 brother's, CA Solus is my go to Wok burner. 

Only 4 I don't use / play with are the white Haller, Hasag-missing the outer cap, Monitor-needs new nrv and the little Primus 70 with homemade burner plate, with no valve and white gas involved at 90ish years old I've decided that it can just look pretty. 
The Optimus 5 at front right is pre 1914 and a great runner.

Choose one.... tough call.... Trangia with pots and kettle included is so easy,  but my love for Coleman nickel would see the 500 win.
Not so easy to find Coleman singles here.

More worrisome is that as a Stovie.... I now only have 1 less lantern than stoves with double burners included, and evens if I count my one wick lamp....

Stovie Emergency!

Thanks to everyone who posted. Still hoping for more.

JimL - You need to get those stoves together for a group photo! It doesn't take as long as I thought to gather all of them.

Camplight - What is your favorite?

Barrett - you've got a few I'm still hunting for (Solus and 500)

HwyChef - I think you need to post that MSR XKG. I don't have one of those, though I did do some cold temp testing on a borrowed Whisperlite. 

I see that there's a Haller on ebay right now and have been watching it.

I forgot to add the single-burner propane picnic stove. Arrrgh!!

The Haller I picked up in a trade along with the British Solus. 
I think they were more of a food warmer than cooking stove, being a kero wicky. 
That one is unused and in good nick, so wifey allows in in the kitchen as an shelfie lol

Great stoves everybody. I'll post mine but not shown are the 502's, one 500 and the Bernz rocket launcher single. If I had to keep just one it would be the 458G. I can (and have) cooked on it but is also also capable of really throwing the heat if needed. Bonus is that the heat drum for the 457G's also fits the 458G! I also like the 530's ad 520's for their ruggedness but if you're wanting to simmer the 400A wins hands down.

More stuff out in the shop but this is the current line-up of single burner stoves that gets to occupy the stove shelf in the house. Fired and used all of them I think?? Except for the Aladdin "wheelie". valve. Gotta get on that one someday.

Thanks on the Evinrude. Probably my oldest stove. Did a bit of a write up over at CCS on it a year or so ago when I first fired it. I think it's around 1910'ish??  A real cool flame pattern.

If it has a flame, I like it.
While it is certainly nice to find what you collect, in reality you must collect what you find.
