i have the same flashlight and it also uses a spring, which is original to the flashlight. i don't think any of them had a bar or a wire.

I inherited this exact flashlight from my Grandfather. Mine has a spring in the tailcap, it may have been install by my Grandfather. He used
this flashlight regularly. I always wondered how old it was. Thanks for the great site!

Tailcap uses a thick metal bar or wire rather than a spring to contact negative end of batteries.. This model uses a screw base bulb rather than PR-base bulb.

Models with this type of bezel assembly allow for removal of the top portion of the bezel to replace the lens. In addition, the entire bezel assembly can be removed to facilitate replacement of the bulb or for use as an "electrical candle". This Eveready model is interesting because there is an additional relatively flat reflector below the bulb and the main reflector. This facilitates it use as an electric candle when the entire bezel assembly is removed. If the flashlight is hand held when the bezel assembly is removed, it can also be used to light up a large area using the less focused electric candle beam emitted from the exposed bulb in conjuction with the secondary reflector.
