My wife and I were at the Elephant's Trunk flea market in Fairfield, Ct. yesterday, and I came across this Eveready Captain 2C on a table for $5.00. A bit of cleaning, a new bulb, and nostalgic flashaholism was in full effect! No crud in the battery tube, looked brand new inside. Nostalgia for me, my Grandmother worked for Union Carbide starting right around when this was made. (Circa 1963 as per the FlashlightMuseum webpage.) Used it in the backyard last night, probably the first time in years it's been fired up. Metal switch with plastic button, momentary with off lock via button, just a cool piece of flashlight history. May need to look for a 2D next trip!
