Hi guys, ever see one of these? Talk about getting a headache. Lol. Imagine using this to search a bank box of pennies. Whoa. What era is this from? Looks like a Boy Scout flashlight, doesn't it? :D

It still Works!

Many Pics

    I vaguely remember that one or one very much like it. I have yet to find an illuminated magnifier I like.

    You could fight off robbers with that thing and then go back to roll searching.
    Hats pretty neat. No idea when it’s from. It looks very 1950s to me, but what do I know? I wasn’t around for that.

    Just a lack of a ZIP code for the address of the place would indicate that it was made before 1963. And the fact it was manufactured here in the USA indicates that it's pretty old, too.

    Kind of a cool loupe. But Would be hard to walk a show with that in you pocket or around your neck.

    Hoard the keys.

    Nice old magnifier light.... I have seen similar, though smaller, used at shows. Cheers, RickO

    Yes, I noticed the lack of a zip code, too. And the battery expired ten years ago.

    Collector and dealer in obsolete currency. Always buying all obsolete bank notes and scrip.
