Condition
This is a cosmetically SUPERB lantern with the majority of the original finishesintact and just minor signs of age and use. There area fewsmall rust spots to the lamphouse and there is some light surface rust to parts of the case.Both the condenserand the projection lens appear to be very good.
Overall the lantern appears to havebeen little used and carefully stored.A fairly modern electric illuminant is available if required but it weighs 2 kilograms and is therefore expensive to ship overseas. Ask for details.
There is no slide changer included.
