I have the same light but can not get the end cap off. Makes about a 1/4 turn and then hangs up and will not turn. Any ideas ???

I also have this flashlight in great shape and working, no name plate, does have all copper in script ingraved on body towards the end cap. Because I live near Bisbee Arizona which is an old copper mining town I had thought that this flashlight might of been given to miners at time of retirement. But thanks to all that have commented on this flashlight, I'll have to except that this flashlight is not as speical as I first had thought. I bought this flashlight the same week That I had found a original GM accesory flashlight call the "Red Head" sold on ebay for $1,800.00. The buyer reported selling it for $14,800.00 at Pebble Beach in Cal.

I have this flashlight, Dec. 3, 1929. Solid copper, excellent condition. Found in the trash at Mansbach Metal.

The date Dec. something, 1929, (I can't make out the day) is the patent date, probably for the flashlight. The patent number that John found is for the switch: what's novel is apparently the addition of the push-button. The one I have was my father's, and still in perfect working condition. Made in the USA.

The one I have is exactly like the one pictured except that it isn't polished but otherwise in perfect, working condition. Looks like there is a date on the plate above the switch that says Dec. 8, 1929. Not sure of that though. I think this one was either my grandfather's or my great aunts. I remember seeing it as a child but don't remember where other than my dad having it.

I recently acquired this flashlight in very good condition, like John's my flashlight does not have the nameplate. Any information about a possible later model CS22 without the nameplate?

I was going through our flashlights and decided to find out more about this one we have had for years. It used to be stashed in my dad's desk until a year or so ago. PAT. No. 1,774,722 It doesn't have a nameplate ahead of the switch and the hanger loop is missing. Still works; on, off, and flash modes. Bezel turns to focus beam. I think I'll keep it in my desk.

Just found this flashlight between studs as I was renovating the walls. Batteries were still in it but badly corroded. The light bulb was still good. The switch does not work. The ever ready cells said use before Nov 1942.
