Wehrmacht/ Multipurpose Bakelite Carbide Lantern 1939/42

SKU: 2251 Category:


Complete carbide lantern made entirely of first-time bakelite. It has three metal plates to cover the windows and direct the focus, the front one with a war cover (generally the central round cover is missing). In addition, it has a front plate with two windows, one round and the other in the form of a stripe, to make Morse signals. It has two tanks, the rear one for the water and a lower one under pressure for the carbide stone. The combination of both produced the gas. The handle is marked with the Waffenamt “WaA772”.

Note.- Very rare that it is complete and with the regulation and filling elements.
