    So I travelled to visit some friends this past weekend and had the opportunity to check out their local antique/junk stores.
    Did not expect much but did come across the below. Now I already have it's big brother the 639, so thought it would be nice to add this to the collection.

    It's a bit crusty with come rust, but apart from the globe seems to be complete. I'll be getting to work on it this weekend as time permits. I have some more pictures below to show some details. It is quite nice to have the 339 and 639 of the same year and month of manufacture. July of 1974.

    Thanks for looking

    Jaco

    I do like these 335 and 339 lanterns. Neat powerful lamps and pretty well made. I have had a few and they have always fettled to work very well. ::Neil::
