    Hello again,

    I also found this AGM 2572 in my junk room. All I did was clean it up a bit and replace the mantles. The mantles I'm using are Egret rated between 300/400C.P. As can be seen below they work very well.

    I did some checking to see if there were any stress cracks and found non. The fount is in pristine condition. The fount is a very nice red color.

    The hood is also in pristine condition with no chips. The hood is maroon. It is hard to see with the poor lighting conditions.

    The decal or metal plate is also in very good condition.

    The glass globe isn't original but this Coleman glass globe looks pretty good with the partial etching.

    This lantern is very bright indeed.

    This AGM was one of the easiest fettling jobs to complete. Most of my lanterns take a while to get them up and going.

    Cheers,

    Norman

    @Henry Plews
    Yes it is very bright indeed. This lantern is almost too bright. I might start looking for a full frosted glass globe.

    @JEFF JOHNSON
    Thank you Jeff.

    Cheers,

    Norman
