Our lantern is in excellent display condition. The top stamping shows light-moderate wear from normal railroad service, but NO broken or missing parts. The "button" top is fine with NO dents. It is complete, sound and solid and all original, except that it has a coat of old black paint on the lid. Patent dates stamped around the outer edge of the rim range from 1903 to 1913. It is a terrific example of this oddball model, which is nearly identical to the more common Adlake Reliable. The handle is the combination swing/lock model (its side "ears" either lock the bail upright or allow it to swing).

The Underground Railroad, published in 2016, is the sixth novel by American author Colson Whitehead.

This is a great book and is exactly what it's titled, an encyclopedia of railroad lighting, specifically the railroad hand lantern. Volume 2 covers railroad lamps. It's a good reference for looking up railroad lanterns. Bare bones information on each lantern model number, the options that were offered with it, etc. Kind of sparce on information if you're looking for dates of manufacture. Good general information on the companies involved. I think it's kind of pricey, but it's my most used and generally my only book used when researching lanterns.
