I was going though your site and noticed that you have a 1936 Redhead Flashlight in your museum. Funny I thought, If I remember right I have one just like it. So I got to digging around and found it. It still works and has a few dents. The stand is different from the one you have but the body style looks to be the same. The lite has a Pat. date of Dec 20. 1921. I have a few other odd balls kicking around to. I used to collect them when I was a kid from the Goodwill and other used stores. I also have a USA Lite called "BULL DOG" It is of the 2D-cell kind, fiber body and heavy duity rubber cap ends. Any way I do enjoy your site and thank you for shearing it with me.
