Not the best picture and I’m not real good with older peak lights. Anyone know what they are?

Are those N cells ? Does it run on one, or two ? Do they have 5mm emitter(s) or a power LED ? How many emitters ? Optic or reflector ?

They look like Shasta or Baltic with the AAA body. I think all of the N cell bodies ae the same or very similar diameter as the corresponding heads.
it would be easier if we knew if they were 5mm led or not.

I’ll post more pictures when they show up. It was kind of a package deal with 6 older peaks.

Since the batteries are not in-plane with the flashlights, it is difficult to guess the perspective effect.

As jabe notes, it will depend on their relative diameters. Roughly, AAA ~ 10mm, N ~ 12mm, AA ~ 14mm.

Many of the older vintage Peaks had interchangeable battery host tubes, of different ID, but compatible threading.

That’s the one 

Nice! Glad you bought it, I was on the fence so now my wallet can rest easy. As far as ID-ing the light, it looks a lot like this one I was sold. Seller said it was a Volcan, and this is the AAA tube. N cell and Eiger included for size reference

Edit; Mcbrat jogged my memory, seller said Volcan, not Vesuvius

The bezel/heads are similar for Pacific and Baltic, but the Baltic was QTC and possible an optic instead of reflector. I don't have any left to look at....

Hi! Not sure if this was ever resolved .. hope this helps .. we only made two lights with that style head, the Baltic (approx .50 dia) and the Pacific (approx .75 dia) both were made with reflectors, both had multiple battery tubes available.
