I started collecting old metal flash lights a while back. This one is in perfect shape, no scratches, dents, rust, or leaking batteries. The best part is what I paid for it. $1.65 at the local Goodwill store;

One brand you may come across is Delta. They had a plant in Marion, Indiana near where I grew up. they made a lantern somewhat like the one you have pictured and a sealed beam unit called the power king that ran on 2 lantern cells. They also made bike lights and running lights for small boats.

Thanks. Amazing shape for the age, and looks like it was probably never used...rare.

It's just as clean in the battery compartment too. I believe you're right, it looks like it was forgotten on someones shelf and fortunately not in an attic or basement!

I'll keep an eye out for the Delta lights too.

I also found two Ray-o-vac metal flashlights still the the boxes from the mid 1960's. Even the boxes look great!

Or with the batteries still in it. Razz

Nice find at a great price too.
