I have one of these flashlights identical to the picture but using two standard "C" cell batteries instead of what's referenced here for having two of the "D" cell. Too, it has the nickle (or maybe chrome) finish now well worn to a copper base and it's patent 2188387 for it's switch shows to be dated to that of 1938. As this flashlight has remained the 1st and last to work without a hitch over numerous others of later corporate clown make, I think I would value this flashlight a lot higher than the $2.00 our Flashlight Museum is touting. You could add another zero to the right of this figure for what work it has done over many a stupid plastic flashlight and even those that are heavy rubber exterior based, all gone with this one still working and with no pampering of it.

I just bought one of these today at a yard sale but it is a longer 3-"D" cell version.

I have one of these in reasonable condition (nickel plating worn off in a few places as in this photo). Still works fine. Belonged to my mother & father.
