Vintage D Cell Flashlights
On the right is a colorful 1940's Bright Start display. They came in other colors besides what is shown here. Value between $90-$120.
The last 2 flashlights in this gallery are made from cardboard. Only the ends, the switch and springs are made from metal. Chances are they came out during WW ll when metal was scarce. The green flashlight has no switch. This is the first switchless flashlight I have seen that wasn't a Yale or a Bond. I would consider both are rare flashlights.
All you need to do now is move your mouse pointer over a flashlight to view an enlarged photo with a short description on each flashlight.
