The metal is smooth with some light surface roughness. There are no dents or rusted areas.
In the third picture, the lantern appears to lean to the left -- it does not lean, but sits straight. The twist off fount is correct for this model of lantern. It is solid and has no rust or holes. The fount attaches and removes easily.It is secure when on the frame. The clear cast globe is a match for the lid-- it is cast Rock Island (over) System in a square panel.
