    Default Vintage Battery Labels

    Hello I just joined this site. Forgive me if I'm posting in the wrong forum. I'm looking for someone that might have a late 30's or early 40's scan of a 6 volt lantern battery label. I need it to cover a latern battery for a prewar schwinn bicycle. I found D cell scans and they work great for my other bikes. At the bottom it says I may not post images or I would have attached the 1938 D cell eveready scan for everyone's use.

    Thanks

    Hello I'm brand new to the forum. I have D cell eveready scans dated 1938 if anyone would like them. I'm looking for a 6 volt lantern battery scan from the mid 30's to mid 40's. The D cell battery scans work perfect for my 36 and 37 prewar schwinn battery trays. I have a 1940 Schwinn bicycle that takes the 6 volt latern battery hence the need for a 6 volt lantern battery vintage scan. Please post or e-mail if you can help. I think I'm too new to post images. My e-mail is markivpedalpusher@gmail.com if anyone wants a copy of the 38 D cell eveready scan I have please e-mail. Thanks

    Welcome.

    You might get a better answer in the Flashlight Collecting forum. Scroll down a bit more on the index.

    The easy way to show a photo is to put it elsewhere, and put the link here.

    Thats a neat idea. I wonder if the Ray-O-Vac wrapper found here would work if you printed 2 of them? Perhaps some scaling would be in order, but should be do-able.

    Here are the rest of them, for those who don't want to google

    Gosh, you guys are making me feel old. I vaguely remember the old high voltage "B" batteries in various sizes and voltages wrapped with paper/cardboard labels.

    I clearly remember "A" filament batteries in the 60's. Dry cell, 1.5 volts, about the size of two beer cans stacked one on top of each other. I remember using them to start fuel-powered model airplanes. On strings, none of this fancy radio controlled stuff.

    Ditto that-you needed something big to get those glowplugs glowing! I remember no longer being able to buy those beer can batteries at the "Pic-n-Save"! I had a P-51 and a front engine dragster on string-you might get dizzy if you put enough fuel in them or your string got broken and was way too short-LOL

    Thanks for the link I will try that forum as well. I wish I could attach the scan I have but I'm too new and my image source will not allow me to attach .pdf files. If someone is interested I could e-mail them the scan I have if they know how to convert them to .jpg or other.

    Thank you

    ronkar thanks for the advice I appreciate it.

    VegasF6 I think it would work but I'm a stickler for correctness. That scan is for a dry cell and I need a vintage 6 volt lantern battery scan.

    If either of you know how to convert a .pdf to a .jpg I can e-mail you the D cell eveready 1938 scan so it can be posted for others to use.

    Thanks

    Have not tried this, but it looks as if it should work.

    Conversion of pdf to jpg format:

    And here's the Eveready 1938 Prewar D Cell Label (with spelling error) @ 1200dpi in simple baseline optimized JPEG! Rightclick and 'save as' to download, if anyone would like any other format/quality or a vector drawing of any kind just shout!


    [edit] And here you can find the second version with the spelling error corrected![/edit]

    Well, not exactly Awesome . . . .


    Appears to be a rather obvious TYPO error on that vintage 1938 label.


    (tsk tsk)

    ___


    Somebody went to a LOT of work and effort on that label,
    but, sadly, they neglected to Proof-read it.




    Hopefully, a corrected version 2.0 will eventually be released.


    BTW, am i the first person who SPOTTED the typo ? ? ?

    You guys mean San Fransisco? That should be San Francisco right?

    Incredible how all of you are clever enough to find the typo but none of you actually took the time to fix it....

    Does anyone have or know where I could get some UK British Battery labels 1900-1945 period.
    The single cell (D) and the double linked battery with brass front tag, used in cycle lamps.

    I do this to as it keeps my lamps original, its never a good idea to laminate, always use clear fablon as then you can wrap the covers around the batterys easy. You can do this with those flat shape four half volt cells to. Take care removing the lables as not to tear them a sharp scalpel is good for this purpose, its well worth the effort as it keeps your lamps original.

    Hi. New guy here. I've never done a forum before, so this may not compute.
    Burgess batteries have always interested me. I have been looking for Burgess label scans that I coild download to construct replica batteries. I downloaded some a few years ago and made some #6 dry cell and 45V replica batteries. I have since lost the artwork. Is there anyone who is still posting actual size scans of Burgess batteries?

    Default Any graphics available to make replica 4.5 Volt batteries?

    First post here...

    Has anyone here recreated the lables on early three cell (4.5 Volt) batteries like the Eveready Tungsten 705 or Burgess 232? They were used in a few portable radios of the early to mid 1920's. The most common being the RCA Radiola II (2).

    I just acquired a Cyclone brand 3 cell battery and will make the lable graphic available for download to anyone that wants it when I'm done.
    The battery is dated 1925.

    Thanks,
    Robert in NC

    Good Luck in your searching.

    Please let us know what you come up with.


    It was my old childhood memories ( Just turned 61 ),

    which inspired me to choose my CPF user name of Burgess !


    As a tribute to this American battery manufacturer of days past . . . .

    Here are a couple of Burgess scans made full size... Sorry I have not yet had time to refine these images...

    Just yesterday I completed my round battery scanner. I've built a web page for it.

    http://kd4hsh.homestead.com/Rnd-Bat-Scan-00.html

    So if you have any rare batteries you want scanned, I can do it for you at very low risk to your artifact. It will only cost you the shipping both ways. You will get non-exclusive raw scans that you can use for any reason. If I choose to make corrected images, I will make them available to you.



    Please keep in mind that I am especially looking for the 4.5 Volt round batteries used in the RCA Radiola II. The RCA Red Book recommends Eveready 'Tungsten' #705 or Burgess # 232.
