Offered is an antique 1897 Handlan Buck Mfg. Co Railroad Lantern with MM Buck stamped twist off bottom with last patent date of 1897. The Bail handle device has been remade out of brass wire, brass strapping, and 50/50 solder as the lantern was missing that part; otherwise original & the base piece riveted through lid is the original part.
The extended base globe has a 2 crack, otherwise real nice and boldly embossed, so it still displays well. It's a very good condition overall lantern and a little scarce to see.
