    These are collectible, although not a big ticket item. A few years these were bringing 50, 60 bucks, not sure now. During the hayday of camp lantern collecting, all the high end stuff went to Japan.

    To the right person they are collectable Sadly that one has a stress crack like so many Akron military lanterns.
