The fount and burner appear to be in working condition and should hold fuel and burn if desired. The fount has no visible holes but may have had some minor repairs to the bottom and has not been tested. The 7/8 flat wick easily moves up and down when the adjuster is turned. The globe has a strong cast and is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, scratches, or cloudiness. As with any globe that saw railroad service, there may be some roughness or chipping on the rims which will not show when the globe is in a frame.
