I have one brand new in the box. The box is a little weathered but fully intact. Would be a great addition to the glovebox of an antique car.

I have one that looks like new... no dents, scratches or marks...
Anyone want to buy it? (rhombicsky@aol.com)I actually thought it was from the 50s because I thought I remembered in my Grandfather's kitchen drawer when I was about 8 which would have been 1955. Must have been a different light altogether.

I love flashlights. This was my first. Got it as birthday present when I was about 9 yrs old after a story in our reader at school was about boy exploring a cave sparked my desire. Original one lost but have one just like it still. Also have a D-cell "Captain" with newer switch design. Agree the switch design on this flashlight is very cool.

My dad had one of these for years! Momentary on, or you could depress the button and slide the switch forward and it would stay on. Very cool.
