In 1998 a new model was introduced. This was a total departure from previous lantern production as it was a deliberate aim at the enthusiast/collector market. I understand only 50 were initially made but they continued to produce them right up to closure. As you can see it is an attractive lantern harking back to the days of near total brass construction. The frame collar is deeper than the old 300/300x style but you can see where the inspiration comes from.
