Typical CPF rules apply. First "I'll take it," payment by Paypal within 24 hours, shipping included in CONUS. International buyers please PM first to see if we can sort out shipping. The last time I sent something internationally it disappeared in the USPS mystery machine for two months before finally getting delivered, so I am left quite wary.

I bought these lights thinking that I would make a project of bringing them into the LED era, but realistically, I doubt that I am going to get around to it. These are all solid Sterling silver (92.5%) made by Tiffany. I have two boxes, one for each type of light. The fancier style also comes with a nice Tiffany cloth pouch (which has kept it appearing much less tarnished than the others). As far as function, one of the smaller ones is in complete running order. The tailcap/chain connection point is a momentary only switch and the output with the installed bulb is in the sub-lumen range. The other small one needs a spring to get it running and a slight adjustment might be in order, as AAAs need some coaxing to remove. The third, fancier one, appears to need a couple of springs and a bulb to work, but has the most potential to become a very cool light. It appears to be a twisty, but I have not had it up and running.

I'd like all three of these to go together to a creative modder who can make something out of them. I'm offering all three for $175 200 shipped. PACKAGE SPLIT!

Other Two Available @ $90 Shipped

The bulb in the smaller ones is marked GE112. I'll get a couple of pictures of the head of the other one up later. The bulb in that one is behind a glass window though, so it could theoretically take anything that would fit.

It's tough to track down information on these so I don't know exactly, but I believe the two-piece bodies are earlier, from the 1960s and the three piece body is from the 1970s or '80s. I wish I could give you a more precise timeframe.

Very cool that you might be able to find some more info on these lights. There just aren't many precious metal lights out there, though I think Cartier made one also. Haven't been able to find one of those on the market yet. It may have been solid gold, which would be cool to see, but a bit outside of my flashlight budget.

I have no reason to doubt that they are real. They are engraved with the Tiffany name and other silver hallmarks, which would be visible in my photos if I was a better photographer.
