Vintage USALite Flashlights #2

USA LITE logo I'm a big fan of the vintage USALite flashlights, as you can tell. Here's some more from my collection of over 85 flashlights and a couple of USALite lanterns. The lanterns are located in the Lantern Gallery, for now.

Roy Rogers & Lone Ranger

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. I haven't seen the box with the compass on the end cap. 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.

Roy Rogers Flashlight

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.

So this looks to be another factory mistake. Should have had the siren end cap. Maybe these also came with a flashlight holster. For the record, this is the first time I have seen the 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.

I did see the Roy Rogers flashlight with the compass end cap before. I think it was called... The Trail-Finder. But you would think, if one came with the compass, the other one, (Lone Ranger) had it also. All three flashlights work as does the siren and compass. Happy Trails.

Here's another tin lithograph flashlight from USALite.

The Tom Corbett Space Cadet Signal Siren flashlight. Came with the box, and the planet distance guide and weight chart paper work. The flashlight is in mint condition. The box shows wear, and one flap missing on top. Still in ok condition.

 Roy Rogers Flashlight Ad

1950's USALite Roy Rogers signal flashlight ad. Notice it does not say... siren on the flashlight. It came with a compass end cap, and a holster for the flashlight. So this is a different version, which makes #3. The more common Siren Signal flashlight, the Trail Blazer, which came with the compass end cap, and the Signal flashlight seen in the ad. So there you go... proof is in the ad.
