Steel battery compartment? Stamped steel supports? Special poured glass lens? That lantern must have cost quite a bit back in the day. I bet today the cost to have that made in the USA would be very high. Looks like auto lamps were used for the bulbs. Of course, today it would be put together with LEDs.I been using this big beam lantern around the house at night. Talk about old school, but I really like it.
THAT IS A NICE PIECE OF KIT!
