BURLINGTON CEDAR RAPIDS & NORTHERN

Item # 12772

Adams & Westlake patent 1889 ADAMS frame marked BCR&N in large letters on the lid. This rare frame is in excellent original condition with no pitting and smooth surface that is uncleaned and untouched. As with most 89's there are a couple of loose solder joints but not bad. There is one dent and minor separation at the top of the globe seat that is an easy fix. The fuel font is from a model 1897 but good fit and the patina matches so it appears to have been there a long time.

The globe is a clear etched free blown 5 3/8" extended base globe marked CRI&PRR in big letters. one tiny chip out of the extended base keeps it from being perfect. Super nice etching. You'll search a long time to find another BCR&N lantern for sale these days. One this nice is sure to command a lot of attention.

CHICAGO MILWAUKEE & St. PAUL RAILWAY

Item # 12771

Standard 1895 A&W model brass top bell bottom marked CM&StPRy on the lid in smaller letters. Has the extra 08 patent date stamped in small font on the lid as well. This frame is way above average for condition showing almost all original tin across the entire lantern. These frames were tinned only on the lid shoulder and lower fuel font areas as well as the fuel font itself. The bells and chimneys were left with only the factory sheet finish which was flash tinned and disappeared quickly after manufacture. This frame is just gorgeous in all aspects.

The globe is a clear cast CM&StPRy corning style globe with round end panel and is in excellent condition. This frame will surprise you as to how great it actually is!

CHICAGO NORTH SHORE & MILWAUKEE RAILROAD

Item # 12570

This is a nice model 1913 Adlake Reliable frame embossed CNS&MRR on the lid. Painted silver but appears to be in good rust free condition underneath. The fuel font is in good condition with the bottom having perhaps a tiny pin hole in it at worst. Nice frame.

The globe is certainly the star of the set. Corning 5 3/8" signal green globe etched CNS&MRR on the side. The etching straddles the mold line but that's the only complaint as the rims of the globe show minor nicks and there are silver paint remains on the top and bottom of the globe. Cnx marking is fully cast and there are no cracks or other damage. Super hard to find this color!

SAN ANTONIO & ARANSAS PASS

Item # 12381

Beautiful Handlan round top tall globe frame marked in large letters SA&AP on the lid. This Texas line is difficult to find any hardware from, let alone a lantern with such great tinning. This frame remains nearly 80% tinned and in excellent original condition. The font may not be factory original but appears to have been with the frame for a long while as it matches perfectly.

The globe is a red original Corning globe with hallmark. Although it appears a collector has added the SA&AP marking to the globe, this is a very attractive lantern and if you are fortunate enough to have an original marked globe, this would be the perfect compliment.
