I have this lantern and cannot find a replacement bulb. The existing bulb is marked as a G.E. 1553, double filament, double contact. I want to buy several of these replacement bulbs if anyone can tell me where I might be able to buy them ??????

I purchased one of these flashlights new almost 40 years ago when I was a young boy for $20.15 including tax, complete with batteries. The patent numbers listed on the inside cover are 174289-2744188. I have the original bulb with the flashlight which appears to be a G-E 4547 4.75 volt hand lantern bulb.

The flashlight has served me very well and with 3 new Duracell 6 volt batteries is very bright. It came along on many camping trips when I was in Scouts, and growing up our family always brought it along when we traveled. The flashlight has traveled thousands of miles and now I live in the country and we still use it.

I remember when I bought it my Dad told me I was wasting my money, and many years later when I was a man he told me purchasing the flashlight was about the best purchase I could have made.

I have one of these. Very rugged construction. Bulb has two filaments; wide or tight focus. I cannot find
replacement bulbs for this anywhere. Bulb type appears to be GE #1553 (number on base). I have the
original, working bulb but am instead using a #1493 bulb with a lead-acid 6 volt battery (5Ah) . Very tight, bright beam.
