I got to this one today.  I picked it up about a month ago and to be
honest I didnt know what it was when I bought it.  I just knew it was
differnt and I'm a sucker for the carb valve lanterns..

This has to be one of the most soildly built lanterns I have ever seen,
heavy nickle burner cage and bail, and a heavy porcelin big hat.

just needed a new R-55 gen and a good cleaning.









According to Terry's site, Lind-O-Lites were made in Milwaukee WI in the early
30's.  A well made lantern in my observations I would like to find another
someday.

A rare bird for sure! Great that it is in running order. Resembles the AGM 288 with that carb control. Truly an exeptional find!

A classic lantern you have there Smitty, nice ! The black one may be an ealier 115 version. You can see a difference in vent and collar; holes in the black and slots in the green one.
Here you can see a black 115 Lindolite lantern on the CPL, owned by Neil McRae.........

cool catalog pic Conny . shown above is the style Lindo i have here , but i have a different take on the time line :-) i was thinking Smitty had a later version . only cuz with most of these things the smaller sorta sloted  frame rests and sloted vent seem earlier to me but its just my hunch with no proof to back it up .   at the top of the frame rest in the catalog there is a small circle i cant figure out if its a part of the lantern or what it is ? mine doesnt have anything there .

Thanks for posting that Conny, Looks like I need to have Fred make me a globe
without a lighting door. 

Steve if you get a chance to post a pic of yours on here, it may help someone
identify one someday.  They must be super rare, not alot of members chiming
in that they have one. 

thanks guys!
