Uses dual contact bulb PR-14.

The replacement bulb is PR14 and very hard to find. Do a Google search and some will turn up. Be prepared to spend $20 for a bulb.

I purchased one exactly like this at a flea market,it is in prestine condition and works perfectly for $5.00 I didn`t realise it was worth $60.00 I guess i`d better hold on to this one.

I won this VERY NICE flashlight in that auction, Dan, and I now see that there are two filaments and two contact points on the bulb (and it works fine, BTW; I have it stored with my other NOS flashlights). A very ingenious setup, also a way for Eveready to insure that the user couldn't buy anyone else's bulb! Any idea how to get a replacement bulb for it? I don't see a number printed on the bulb base.

It is Spot-Flood light as the larger plate below the switch also moves forward and backwards to make the secondary contact on the bulb for the Spot or Flood position. I have several of these one in the original box, with instructions, never used. It is in perfect condition. I'll be auctioning it on eBay starting this Thursday.

I just got one on eBay. It works, but I'm not sure why it is called a "spot-flood" because it operates and looks like an ordinary flashlight UNLESS SOMETHING IS MISSING FROM IT. There is no shroud that slides over the bulb that I can see. If anyone has more info, please let me know. Thanks.
