I have an Eveready, Nickel Plated, possibly a model 2630 flashlight (2, C-cell batteries and is just like the one in the photograph), that belonged to my dad or his dad and later given to him. My dad was born 11/4/1911 and in died 2006. I was given the flashlight by my Mom in 2010.
A patent date of "Oct 19 1915" is stamped on the barrel and it has a fish eye shaped lens. It‘s C cell, 5.5” total length, and the barrel is 1.095”. The lens is .368” thick and the ends are screw on 1.295” in diameter. Currently a #14 screw in bulb is in it and produces a 27” diameter light at 2’ from the wall. If anyone has the time, please tell me about it (circa mfg. date and/or other info).
