This lantern was found in a consignment auction/antique store in February 2017. When it was auctioned off no one had bid on it and the auctioneer had a choice of throwing the greasy looking lantern away or put it upfront after paying a few pennies for it. Luckily for me, he didn't throw it away. It was on the floor for who knows how long until I kicked it accidentally, and with that kick, it became my first lantern in my collection. My wife talked the owner into not charging us tax so it cost $20. They are still quite rare and not many mentions of the lanterns are found on the web. Mine was missing the pump assembly as a brass air adapter was put on it. A MilSpec pump assembly works fine in it. Many thanks to MacBurner for him posting his lantern and telling some of history of these unique lanterns. I still wonder why I was allowed to find it; with this lantern I get to run with the big dogs. Thank you.
