I have a U-C LITE KFG CO. lantern Model 211. The reflecter is a bit cloudy and I would like a replacement. Is one still available?

I have the same one as above. Still works Bottom a little rusted on outside. Was wondering how much it's worth?

I have one that has the above logo - No. 111, but where this one says, "Pat. Pend.", mine says, "Pat. Feb 1953" Also, on mine, the switch isn't on the lamp part, but on the red base, near the lamp.

I have a 211, but I would really like to know how old it is. It looks pretty rough, but I ran new wire from the battery box to the lamp, it still has both original bulbs, and works, I use it all the time. My great grandfather used it in the coal mines, and my grandfather remembers his dad carrying it into the mines as a kid, and my grandfather is 62 years old.

I have this exact model. It was my grandfaters. I can't believ it is only worth 5 bucks. It uses a standard lantern battery that you can buy anywhere.
