Does anybody else collect flashlights? These three are pretty cool. The one on the left is a solid copper Ray-O-Vac. The one in the middle is also a Ray-O-Vac with "Captain Ray-O-Vac" flying proudly on it's side. The one on the right is a Bond "Bronze-Lite" made of, you guessed it, solid bronze... Oh, in the middle there is a neat vintage weather station.

    Does anyone else collect flashlights? Yes. I asked this same question about thirty years ago. The "Bright Spot Newsletter" Flashlight Collector's Quarterly can bring you a lot of information and enjoyment on the subject. Their address is PO Box 242, St. Michael, Mn 55376-4553.
    Your fellow collector, Larry
