I just found one(and bought it, for ONE dollar. Canadian dollar!) in great condition, the previous owner even kept the two battery screw-on knobs inside the flasher red cover. The beam lamp back reflector is tarnished though, I guess it is no longer a "sealed beam"! I noticed that this beam lamp is a GE 4546-1, rated at 4.7V, 500mA. The battery used on these being 6V nominal, my guess is that both the battery and the lamp did not last that long, anybody remembers about this? My plan is to build a 4 cell battery pack using 4 NiCads (4X1.2V=4.8V), D-size if I can find them and thus end up with a more appropriate power source. Anybody has tried that already?

I have a latern like shown except mine says Everready Captain, Sealed Beam No 9100. My flasher works but not the beam. Can the beam be fixed and if so, how? If not, does anyone know where to purchase. Thank you

My great aunt who is now in her 80's was going through closets and boxes cleaning out things ran across this same flashlight that my great uncle had stored in a paper bag. The flashlight has never been used. The only differance is that it is called a Captain #9100. Has anyone seen the #9100 or know anything about it?

I don't know the official history, but I had one of these when I was about 12 and it was one of my prize possessions. That would have been around 1960 or 61.
