My wife had one of these that I saved while cleaning the garage 21 years ago. Put batteries in it today (5/08/08). Still works!

I have one very much like this, however the back piece is flat with a hanger attached and a Burgess logo in the center. The main body is pretty well indentical however the switch itself is slightly different.
Would this be the same flashlight as shown above or is it from a different year?

Patent dates and switch styles are the first step in dating. Although patent dates often apply to an earlier patent on the switch. All input per light is appreciated.
