I picked up one of these at a yard sale when I was a kid for something like $.25. Great light. Took it camping a bunch of times. Had better lens focus than Eveready lanterns, I thought.

There is also a green body, red bezel Boy Scout version of this light.

Still have mine from when I was a young boy in the 60's. Still works fine. Have another one that the chrome on the reflector is totally gone. The batteries were left in it fo a extended period of time and I believe that is what did it. So beware...
