finally figured out picture .t
The one lantern is a USFS that I got last year the other lantern I just got from the same area. It looks like they scratched off what was on it and scratched in something else on the other side. The scratch out is the same size as the USFS wording on the first lantern. Makes me sick to think that’s what happened. What do you guys think ?

Well, there you go, James, nice work! If you click on the pictures, they get larger (for those who did not know.)

As for the lantern, hmmm, hard to tell...I hope it is, for your sake.

Looks like it to me.

My family is all from Idaho and I get up there a couple times per year. We will be up there mid summer for my grandmothers 100th birthday which is a good opportunity for me to speak to an aunt who was a Rangers wife. Sadly, my uncle is passed away, but she spent 25+ years heavily involved in FS. Let me ask her what she knows. Perhaps she can validate your find. Crystal Harmon of Washington has many oddball USFS lanterns but not one like this. Ya never know.

Many CPR lanterns are similarly defaced to hid where they were liberated from. Those dated around 1/1930?

I wonder if I should leave as is or take down to brass since they scratched thru the nickle.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. 
that would erase all its history. Clean the dirt and rust off, and leave it as it was meant to be.

Whew.... Lol. I was going to lose sleep.

You have a very nice piece of history that would bring a lot in a trade. Thanks for showing the pics.
