I got one of these at an antique store. I purchased a large square battery and put it inside. Everything works great. Mine is marked for the Great Northern Railway.

I just purchased one of the Conger Chrome RR Lantern with Narrow Wing Nuts at a thrift store and was wondering what type of battery and bulbs i would need to make it operational. It is in perfect condition except for the battery and bulbs. Any help would be appreciated.

Mine has pat. no. 2653218, and in excellent condition. What is the battery type/number, and where can it be purhased?

The twist off canister is were the battery goes. this type of lantern is most likely from the 1950's and is worth about $15.00

I just purchased one at a yard sale, great condition. What was the priamary use of the twist off canister? Does anyone collect this type of light for future value?
