Up for auction is a wonderful, very old Handlan railroad lantern. It has a clear glass globe with the letters AT & SF in white, etched like lettering. Also on the globe is "Made in USA" and a NX with a horseshoe like open circle around it. Inside the globe is a smaller half globe that is red. This is apparently a candle lantern and not kerosene. Overall condition considering the age which I believe is earlier than the 1920's is very good. T is some paint chipped off in a few places but virtually no real rust. On the top of the lantern is the words Handlan ST. Louis. Thanks for looking and have fun bidding on this great piece of history.
