Old Yale Battery Operated Flashlight
This vintage flashlight is marked Yale on the screw off end. The body of the flashlight appears have a thin, ridged rubber cover and the rest appears to be nickeled brass. The switch on the side slides forward and back to turn it on/off and the little button would have been used to pulse the light as if signaling. The lens is a thick piece of beveled glass and the bezel unscrews to replace the light bulb. The back cap also unscrews to put in the battery or batteries. The cap reads; Use Mono Cell No. 102. It was made by the Yale Electric Corp. of Brooklyn.
It measures about 6 1/2" long and about 2 ¼" in diameter across the bezel. It has seen better days and is in worn condition. The plating is scratched and worn with much of the brass showing through. The rubber sleeve is split in a few places. The inside of the battery compartment is rusty. I am not sure if it is the rust or using the wrong battery (I tried 2 D-cell batteries), but it doesn't seem to work. I have made no attempts to clean or restore it and it is being sold as-is.
