Vintage USALite Tin Lithograph Flashlights
Usalite Lithograph Flashlights. I added a couple more tin lithograph flashlights to my collection of USALite flashlights, and decided to show them in one gallery. So here it is... for your viewing pleasure...
On the right we have the 1950's Lone Ranger lithograph flashlight, with the compass end cap, which might be the wrong end cap for the flashlight. Maybe it came from the factory this way by mistake. I haven't seen the box with the compass on the end cap, or any advertising. Still a keeper. The one next to it, is the 1950's Lone Ranger lithograph signal flashlight, with the siren end cap. On the far right is the 1950's Roy Rogers with Trigger lithograph signal flashlight, with the siren end cap. See the ad below on the lower right.
The Silver Bullet code and the Roy Rogers code, came with the flashlights and boxes shown above.
Are you ready for another Roy Rogers flashlight? Well, this isn't it, but almost. This looks like it was never used, and the box is in great condition. It's the signal siren flashlight, that came with the compass end cap, and... a flashlight holster, with the secret code/morse code paper work, in the box.
This looks to be another factory mistake. Should have had the siren end cap. The Roy Rogers with the compass end cap was called... The Trail Blazer. For the record, this is the first time I have seen the Roy Rogers flashlight holster. The ad seen on the bottom right, states, they came with or without the holster. You'll see from the ad, that there is another version of this flashlight. Happy Trails.
USALite Davy Crocket tin lithograph signal siren flashlight from the mid 50's. The flashlight is in near mint condition, the box, not so much. The top and bottom flashlight holders, made from cardboard, are still in great condition.
This is only the second Davy Crocket flashlight I have seen. This one is pretty plain as far as the tin lithographs, made by USALite.
Besides the lithograph flashlights seen here, USALite had a line of tin lithographs for Disney characters from the mid 30's. Those are the money flashlights. Some more rarer than others.
The Pledge of Allegiance flashlight from the late 40's, is a little more easier to find than the Davy Crocket flashlight. This one is still a hard to find flashlight in good working condition.
The Tom Corbett Space Cadet signal siren flashlight. Came with the box, the planet distance guide and weight chart paper work. The flashlight is in mint condition. The box shows wear, one flap missing on top. Still in ok condition.
It's great to find advertising to go along with the flashlights. This way we have... "The Proof" to end all debates! Plus, we have dates! Even the long time collectors, are not always, right.
