Hi everyone i just purchased one of these and it is still brand new in the box with all the packaging etc. Any idea what this could be worth since it is still new?

Just found one at a thrift store. I tried installing some D's but they were too large. There is a card in the top of mine that shows the battery orientation with text "Use Ray-O-Vac #2 LP" in the diagram. Some quick research showed that #2 is a deprecated designation for a C-cell. I don't have any on hand, but taking a rough measurement they should fit.

In 1964 I won one of these on a punch board for ten cents. I still have it and use it. Extremely well built.

I have a rayovac "HUNTER Lantern. Similar to what you have here only mine is all red body and the "hunter tags on the side are not metal but a silver decal. the word "HUNTER" looks like logs to form the word. the word "Lantern" is in black. Any ideas on age and value? thanks
