    This is an SL61 with box that I bought recently.

    It comes with most of the spares:
    * Reflector (painted not enamelled).
    * Pack of 1-dozen mantles (8 left).
    * Pack of washers x 2.
    * Bottle brush.
    * Vapourisers x 2.
    * Spare globe in Tin.
    * Funnel.
    * Delivery slip.

    It also came with a piece of cloth which I mention as David said his SL61 came with some cloth.

    The lighting torch and meths bottle are missing.

    It doesn't look like it has been lit many times as the enamel top is in good condition. It seems to have suffered a similar fate to Matthew's in that it has been knocked around in the box causing a few dents in the tank.

    There is a crowsfoot stamp on the base which I can't quite make out but I think it reads:

    J. A. 6170
    TL CO. 195? (Presumably Tilley Lamp Company)

    Nice one James, it's a shame about the dents in the tank, it was especially annoying seeing as mine is still to date the most expensive lamp I've bought. :oops:

    Does your box still have the paper tag complete and stapled to the top? Mine is partially there and has the date stamped on it, albeit faint, but there none the less. :thumbup:

    Here we are,

    No there is no paper tag on the box.
