Hey all, I am looking for one of the original UCO Candle Lanterns that was made in the USA. Ideally the Brass model, but open to another model as well.

(I called UCO and they confirmed all models are now produced overseas including the brass model)

Does anyone have one and willing to part with it? Please PM me if so.

Thanks!

I was looking into getting a few of these. Is there a difference in quality between the two?

Yeah from what I've heard, the ones made overseas arent to the same tolerances and there are some aesthetic and functional issues. The base cap isn't as secure. The metal is thinner. The metal top doesn't sit level with the base, etc. In fact a lot of the reviewers independently used the term "dollar store".
If you decide to get some, I'd be interested to hear your assessment.
