I just picked up one of these at a thrift shop for three bucks, and it's in great shape. I always loved flashlights as a kid (still do!), and always had to have one at our cabin in Michigans upper peninsula, as we didn't have electricity (still don't). This will be a great light to have up there once more. Great web site!

It'[s not a "lantern case", just an ordinary hardware store 6v. lantern battery.

I have one just like the pic. However, I don't have the battery case. The one I have isn't quite as polished. I was wondering...does the battery case hold two 6v batteries and then has connections to the top? If it does, does anybody have an extra battery compartment? If you do could you send me an email? Thanks.

P.S. Appears to be the same as #RA00048. As I said before, these also came with a red flasher on the top, same red lens as the Sportsman sealed-beam lantern (RA00103), right where the switch on this unit is located. The double red-and-black switches were then moved to the side of the ribbed housing. I have also a slightly later version with a frosted shade for a diffused, softer all-round light; however, the end is still clear for allowing a spotlight beam.

Have one, mint with tag, although I prefer the one with the red flasher. Very useful for camping.
