I have been trying to identify this lantern. It has a machined brass base, with a striker of some kind. The name on it seems to be ARF--. Any help would be appreciated .

    It looks to be a coal mine lantern. Never saw one with a red lens though.

    Could be railroad..but I would bet it was from a mine..It looks like a blast-proof construction.
