Nice old Armspear here in excellent shape amd good working order. This one here is a real beauty featuring a nice twist in Miller Font with the lantern being a tall globe lantern. The globe is 6 T with Upper Rim O. 2-5/8 x Bottom Rim O.
There is a line near top that cannot be felt with finger and appears to be a strange line that occured during flash. This globe is very thick and heavy and definently a old school collectable piece. The globe has no flashing loss and rims have barely any miting. The lantern itself is super clean with not even a dent or ding. Pat'd dates are on lantern in (2) spots on top with earliest date i can make out being Nov-30-1886 and latest Oct-22-1889.
The font dates earliest being Nov. 91 and latest being Aug. Please refer to pics for condition and thanks for looking. The item "Armspear P & R.
