Item: DIETZ NO. 40 TRAFFIC GARD RAILROAD SIGNAL LANTERNHeight: 8 inches w/ handle down/ handle up 15 ½ Length: n/a Width: 7 ½ inches – base diameter Condition Notes: Paint is still very good- minor scratches, wear and tear. Lantern is un-cleaned, lots of dust, dirt, and soot. Major denting on top- (may be repairable) please see photos- original red globe with magnifying eye- minor chip in one of the fins on the globe. Dent on the base. This lantern has been used- but could be cleaned up and turned into a gem. The lid opens smoothly allowing access to the globe. Burner handle turns and still raises the wick. Still very useable. The items we sell are “Estate Finds” and some of them will have a little dust and dirt or grime- We don’t want to sell you something that is all oiled up, repainted, reconditioned to someone else’s liking- We want you to have that opportunity- that chance to make your purchase, truly yours. As always, there are detailed pictures, please look. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask. All items are offered with a low starting bid and no reserve. We will not end an auction early to sell an item out from under anyone- please don’t ask. Thank you and Good Luck. ~CHECK OUT MY OTHER AUCTIONS~ PLEASE READ Terms are as follows: Payment within 48 hours of winning bid. Item will be shipped within 48 hours of payment, usually next business day. Prompt payment assures a rapid shipment; satisfaction guaranteed. eBay requires sellers to adhere to a standard of performance which is regulated by Feedback. Unfortunately many buyers will not leave feedback once they’ve received the item. To curb this we will now offer a 10% DISCOUNT of the purchase price to any winning bidder who is a repeat customer and has left POSITIVE FEEDBACK on their prior purchase/ purchases. HOW TO RECEIVE THE DISCOUNT : Simple- Send me a message before you pay for the item you have won; tell us what you have bought from us in the past, and approximately when you bought it. Also, use this opportunity to tell us what you collect, what you look for on here, and what you buy. You’ll see us selling more of what you’re after in no time- and you’ll be able to bid more aggressively to win the item, knowing that you’ll be saving money and giving you an advantage over other bidders. WE WANT REPEAT CUSTOMERS- eBay is a very faceless, and anonymous atmosphere for buyers and sellers alike- while other sellers want to sell to the world, We would rather market to a smaller group of individuals who know the quality and speedy shipping they get when they deal with us. There’s no need to take chances when buying on here. See our feedback ! SAVE US AS ONE OF YOUR “FAVORITE SELLERS” and check back often, we try to list every day, our inventory is constantly changing. I WANT YOUR ITEM TO ARRIVE SAFELY AND GO THE EXTRA MILE TO MAKE THAT HAPPEN.. See our feedback ! Unfortunately we have some scam buyers on eBay that claim damage but do not file claims just threaten negative feedback if you do not partially refund purchase price. BEWARE: I will have no part of it, if you have damage, it is insured we will take care of it. If you want to return for the purchase price, contact me ASAP, not a week later to notify me of the situation. From there, you have 7 days to return item in SAME condition; SAME item. For insurance I require photo of damaged shipping box and damage to item, (once again.. contact me ASAP) or you will have to return it, WE PAY NO SHIPPING ON RETURNS. THANK YOU !!!
