Because the globe is free blown and not molded like later globes there can be some variation to the swirl patterns. There is nice original crud/rust in the plaster areas. This lantern is from one of the oldest collections in the country and I'm thrilled to have it on consignment. I personally guarantee the authenticity of this lantern.

Good condition for its age.
94 Northern Railroad of New Hampshire Fixed globe lantern - This lantern is very heavy. The tin weighs next to nothing so it must be the glass. The globe has a nice reverse curve. It has a small top diameter. Both the top and bottom of the globe have applied flanges of glass. The bail is a standard flat band. The top has a star-diamond-star vent assembly. There is an old repair/enhancement to the top. A band of tin was soldered in to hold the globe to the top. The first time I saw one of these I thought it was a crude modern repair. It's not. This type of repair is old and I have now seen 5 lanterns with this feature. What's even stranger is that they all look like the same guy did all of the repairs. The base has lots of Japan finish intact. It looks like copper paint. The bell was once re-soldered to the base ring. This is not uncommon. There is a blob of old aged solder on the bell-tube joint. This is just a butt joint and these often come loose. The pinch pot assembly has some rot. It is OK. It has a glass fount and brass collar and brass double whale oil pick wick burner. The Northern of New Hampshire was a political football that got tossed around among other New Hampshire railroads. Eventually the Boston & Maine took all of these roads over. This is not a common form of lantern for the Northern. You tend to see more marked with the Old English fancy cutting.

Only a couple of roads used this style of cut lettering. The lettering is squat with rounded edges. The globe has applied rings to both the top and bottom. This was done to ensure a secure plaster joint. This frame has loads of its original Japan finish. Even the flat band bail has a Japan finish. This was a creosote based product used to protect tin from rusting. It looks like copper and then it even ages to a peeling black paint look if it gets wet. The pinch-pot assembly is from a brass presentation lantern. This is a real bonus for fixed globe collectors because the brass pinch-pots are very scarce. A tin replacement is much easier to find. This lantern is from one of the oldest collections in the country. It's a great early piece from a road that merged into the New York and New England in the 1870s and then the New Haven in the 1890s. Excellent condition. 
122 Adams or American Express Company Star Headlight Wagon Lantern - This tall globe (5 1/4" tall) lantern was made for either the Adams or American Express Company. Standard Railroad lanterns were modified with bulls-eyes so that the Express companies could use them as Wagon Lamps. The bail is also modified to have an eyelet in the top for more secure mounting. These could have also been used on-board trains or used for general purpose lighting. The lid is clearly stamped "A. EX. Co". The top has the Start Headlight manufacturing marks. The lid latch is the unusual Star 2 tiny brass rivet retainer. I am not sure if the red bulls-eye was factory or Express Company applied. The base also has unusual flat base wire wraps. The base also has an angle before it plunges down for the fount cup. Models like a Reliable come straight across. The fount is unmarked and the brass burner is a "Vortex" model. The globe is an unmarked Rayo. The frame has a globe platform so a non-extended base globe is appropriate for this frame. Excellent condition.
123  "Liberty" Dining Car Chimes with original Hammer - The Liberty Chimes Company was a competitor of Deagan. This set was made in Chicago. This set of chimes has 4 tones and rubber feet in addition to the two eyelets that could be used to wear it around your neck. Chimes were used on Trains, Ships and Theaters. The old NBC radio and TV hourly tone was made with chimes. This set has the Liberty label on the back and it is faintly stamped "100" below the label. The longest side measures 12" and it is 7 1/4" wide. It needs to be restrung to get a fine tone. Right now it sounds just "OK". The hammer is original to the chimes and it has a nice old look to it.

The clevis is a very old design. The dust cover is very thin and it is not sprung. I don't think it was ever sprung because of how thin it is. The clevis has a very old hand forged chain attached.

190 Boston & Maine Wax Sealer ~ Pepperell, Massachusetts ~ Worcester & Nashua Division - Pepperell had two B&M depots. This is from the W&N. The old Boston & Lowell branch is now a pharmacy. This is an older "small head" style B&M sealer. It came with several others from the Worcester & Nashua Division in Massachusetts. The sealer has the B&MRR marking without periods. The handle has seen lots of use. Please note that the sealer reads "backwards" and the additional photo we provide that is easy to read is digital trickery. Very Good, uncleaned condition.

It is badge #275. There is some wear to the nickel plate on the front, it shows some under laying brass. The pin has broken off on the reverse. It could be repaired by a jeweler.

The reverse side has CRR in an arc. The fat dog-leg bit is also found on C&M marked switch locks in New England. This lock proves out that this is Concord and not some other "CRR" railroad. The Bohannan model 116 has fat rivets on one side and a clear plate on the reverse side. This lock also has several links of hand forged chain attached. Very Good condition. 
193 12 Trolley and Electric Line public timetables - This group of timetables is from Trolley, Interurban and Electric lines.

194 Great Northern Railway Adams & Westlake "Adams" Lantern with twist off pot and 1902 patent cast Globe - This is an earlier Adams model with a twist off pot and wire wrap base wires. It has the standard flat verticals and round horizontal wires. The Lid has the standard Adams marking and "GNRY" stamped on one side. The lid also has "11680" stamped in the panel provided for serial numbers. I don't see a lot of GN twist off frames. The frame has pitting and could use a better cleaning. The globe is a very nice GNRY in a square panel. The globe also has the "Dec 30, 1902" patent information cast in tiny letters across the top. This was the "break-out" from extended base globes and the patent was only cast into the early "Corning" styles for a few years. The globe also has some nice air bubbles. The casting is excellent. I think this lantern is a sleeper with some cleaning required. Good condition.
195 Northern Railroad of New Hampshire - Switch Key made by Sherburne, Boston - This is a tapered barrel key with lots of wear and it is the older style bit with a dog-leg. Heavy, even wear with great markings. No "S" on the reverse but several locks have surfaced that take this key bit that do have an "S". Excellent condition.

198 Soo Line side marked Silver Coffee Pot 1907 Gorham  - This Soo Line silver plated coffee pot has made by Gorham Silver in 1907 (they used a pair of scissors for 1907). It has a nice side logo and a sparse back marking of just the maker and a small "7/8 pint" marking. This is an unusual form with such a wide base (to avoid tipping over) and it also has an insulated handle. It has definitely been used but not abused. It has some scratches and minor dents. The top hinge works fine. Good condition.
199 Chesapeake & Ohio Railroad Brass Locomotive Bell from 4-8-4? - It takes at least 2 guys to lift it. It has an XX" base diameter. It was originally mounted above the smokebox door on a steam locomotive. The original 1" thick steel mounting plate is attached. It is currently resting on two pieces of lumber in a red/brown painted cradle. The ringer is present but you can't ring it because it rests on the two pieces of lumber. I could find no obvious markings on the bell itself. I did not take it apart for a closer look. It has a modern presentation plaque stating that it is from the Chesapeake & Ohio. This bell was donated by the C&O to "Cathedral of the Pines" in New Hampshire. Cathedral of the Pines is a non-denominational sanctuary that was created by a New Hampshire family after WWII. The family lost 2 sons in the war and they wanted a contemplative place for anyone to come and enjoy. There is a great view of Mt Manadnock from Cathedral of the Pines. The family also made requests to various railroads for bells to display in one specific spot. Railfans and collectors to this day remember the group of 8 bells. This was one of them. I think this is off of a Greenbrier. My research (really a friend) has shown this type of mounting plate on just the 4-8-4 locomotives. The C&O used top mount bells on many other classes. If I am wrong about this, please speak up. I don't know if I can deliver this beast to Gaithersburg. Please let me know what your requirements are before leaving an absentee bid. You get the bell, mounting bracket and the brown painted frame. The dolly in the picture stays here and is not included. 
200 3 Michigan based Ticket Dater Machine Dies: Jackson, Saginaw, Marshall - This is a group of 3 brass dater machine dies from Michigan. They vary a bit in condition and they have not been cleaned. The last picture is a digital manipulation. Because the dies read backwards, it is awkward to read them. This group includes: (1) Jackson, Mich #7 (2) Saginaw G. A. , Mich #4 (3) Marshall, Mich #5 // Dater dies were used in machines to validate tickets. The dater machines require a die. The dies usually have a location a and a number to help identify who stamped a ticket. All of the dies in this auction are from one collection.
201 New York New Haven & Hartford RR Thompson "Hartford Division" marked lantern with a nice "Presentation" globe - This is a nice example of the Thompson with a Divisional mark. This frame has a 6 1/2" diameter bell. The earlier frames have a 5 1/2" diameter bell. The lid is nicely stamped with the NYNH&HRR marking. The very top has the HARTFORD DIVISION marking. This lantern has been expertly cleaned. The pinch pot has the correct spring tabs under the pinch tabs. The font is tin with a thin pick-wick burner wick. The top does have a brass ferrule for the set screw. This is not uncommon - it's a 50:50 on the brass ferrule being present. The lid has two interesting features: (1) Like many of the later Fitchburg Thompson's an additional ring was riveted to the globe retainer. This is always factory done with 3 pins at perfectly spaced 120 degree positions. (2) At some point this lantern had an additional plate covering the NYNH&HRR marking on the lid. The plate was held with 4 rivets that were evenly spaced at 90 degree intervals. These pins almost align with the periods in the lettering. The extra plate was professionally removed to reveal the beautiful marking and great condition of the original lid. Nobody knows why the lid was covered up. / The globe is a correct 6" tall Thompson "tear drop" with a fine presentation cutting that has two features: (A) there are two initials that I believe are "JH" on one side (B) a fine floral cutting/etching that is obscuring the original NYNH&HRR casting in the globe. / One reasonable explanation for why this lantern is the way it is would be that some employee "JH" took the lantern home and he ground out the NYNH&HRR casting in the globe and then applied a plate over the NYNH&H RR lid marking. It could have also been a presentation piece to a retiree. This is a very nice lantern. Excellent condition. 
202 Vermont Central Railroad Switch Key with Employee Name and History - This special key was made by J. L. Howard in Hartford, Connecticut. It also has the name of the employee it was issued to: John O'Neil. It has a fabulous taper and it is serial number 27 and the standard VtCRR stamping. This key pre-dates the 1873 name change from Vermont Central to Central Vermont. A friend did some research on John O'Neil using old Census reports and came up with his home address and family history. That research material will be included. This is a special key. Few keys are marked for a specific person that can be identified in historical records. The key itself is very nice with a large diameter bit. Very Good condition. 
203 New York Ontario & Western Railway CROSSING FLAGMAN hat badge - This badge is one of several from a nice collection of O&W badges. It has the S. M. Spencer hallmark on the reverse. It has the correct "ghosting" on the reverse from the stamping press. Almost all O&W badges were nickel plated. We have several O&W badges in this auction. Excellent condition.

The Globe is a very nice Red "the D&H" script logo. It's an excellent casting. This lantern is complete and comes with the last style of burners used on Reliable lanterns. Excellent condition. 
208 Central Vermont Railroad Star Headlight Bellbottom Lantern with Ice Spikes - This lantern was nicely cleaned and has an even, dark patina. The top has the "long, straight leg" Star Headlight CVRR lettering stamped into the lid. The Central Vermont changed from Railroad to Railway in 1899. This lantern clearly pre-dates the name change. The frame is not marked for Star Headlight. The globe retainer assembly is on a lid ratchet mechanism. This is used to tighten the spring down on the globe. The bell is a twist off style that takes the standard 5 1/2" tall extended base style globe. The bell has ice spikes on the bottom. The bell may actually be from an Adams & Westlake (short fount collar). The fount is glass and a nice brass burner is present. If it's a replacement bell, it was done a very long time ago or the patina would not match so well. The globe is an unmarked clear 5 1/2" tall, extended base. It fits the frame fine. Marked extended base CV globes are hard to find. 
209 2 Annual Passes: St Paul & Sioux City, Sioux City & Pacific - 2 passes from the Upper Midwest. They are: (1) St Paul & Sioux City - Sioux City & St Paul 1877 - CStPM&O predecessor (2) Sioux City & Pacific 1877 - C&NW predecessor / This is a great pair of passes.

Reynolds, Lexington Ave, New York, NY #20 / They are both uncleaned and could be polished up to a brassy shine. This type of tag was used by the Passenger Revenue Department of the New York Central Railroad. Most measuure 5" by 2 1/2". They are thick, heavy brass. They weight in at about 7 1/2 oz each. That means that 2 weigh almost a pound. These tags were used on canvas mail bags to transport passenger revenue information so that audits could be performed at centralized locations. All of these tags are from one collection.
211 Fitchburg Railroad Station Agent Hat Badge - This badge must be 111 years old. The Boston & Maine took over the Fitchburg in 1900. The Fitchburg Railroad is known for having a few styles of hat badges. This "Notch Top" is a standard design for the Fitchburg. It measures 4" long and it is 1 1/8" tall. The front was cleaned up at some point. The reverse shows real crud from actual use and the reverse has an old solder blob in the center. This is a nice occupation from a long gone railroad. Very Good condition.  
212 New Haven Rosenthal "Indian Tree" Soup Plate 8 3/4" - This New York New Haven and Hartford Railroad china "Soup Plate" was made by Rosenthal China in Germany.

This is a tough maker to find in this pattern. Good condition. 
213 Boston Clinton & Fitchburg Railroad ~ L.F. Betts Brasstop Bellbottom BC&F RR marked lantern - This old brasstop comes with a very nice free blown Cranberry red globe. Removable globe BC&F lanterns do not come with cast globes. The Betts marking under the bell is pretty faint, but it's there. The patent date "Nov 1, 1865". This is not a common marking. The shallow strike in the lid and the skewed ampersand are Betts give-away signs. The brass top has been banged around a bit. The vent holes are a densely packed 3 row alignment. The lantern overall is squat and unusual looking. The twist off bell has hand applied guides for the pins. This is old school hand assembly work. The bell had a 3 wire repair holding the butt joint. This has been expertly repaired and it's barely perceptible now. The bell diameter is almost 6". The Boston Clinton & Fitchburg Railroad existed from 1869-1876. In 1876 it became the Boston Clinton Fitchburg & New Bedford. It eventually ended up in the Old Colony which was absorbed by the New Haven in 1893. The original line was built to bypass Boston with ship based coal from barges on the South Shore to be delivered to mill towns in Northern Massachusetts (Fitchburg, Lowell). Water served the early mills but by the post Civil War era, coal was needed for increased power in the growing mills. This line never went to Boston. It was designed to be the Interstate 495 of its day. This BC&F marking is not common. Free blown globes were made before molds were generally used for mass production. The Cranberry color pre-dates the strict color rules imposed in the 20th century. This globe has fine swirl marks from a "round off" tool used to ensure correct diameter to the top and bottom Good basic condition.

These tags were used on canvas mail bags to transport passenger revenue information so that audits could be performed at centralized locations. All of these tags are from one collection.
221 Portland Saco & Portsmouth Railroad Fixed Globe Lantern - This Portland Saco & Portsmouth RR fixed globe lantern is the standard "block" cutting and not the tapered lettering found on New England Glass models. This style of lantern is called an "Engine" model in an 1850s catalog. It has a cup base that comes off with the fount in the cup. It has 2 bayonet mounting pins. On this lantern one pin is threaded and there is a locking nut. The locking nut will be removed for the auction preview. It is easy to over-tighten one of these nuts. That cracks the globe! The Japan finish on the frame has deteriorated from weather. This lantern is complete and all original. There is some pitting in the metal but no damage. The PS&P was absorbed by the Eastern RR in the early 1870s. This later became the Eastern Division of the B&M which ironically in Maine runs on the West side of the Western Division. This lantern comes from one of the oldest collections in the country. I am thrilled to offer this lantern in this sale. Good condition.

225 2 Ohio based Ticket Dater Machine Dies: Ashtabula, Geneva - This is a group of 2 brass dater machine dies from Ohio. They vary a bit in condition and they have not been cleaned.

Dater dies were used in machines to validate tickets. The dater machines require a die. The dies usually have a location a and a number to help identify who stamped a ticket.

The BC&M RR marking on the lid is clear. The bell is fine with no damage. The pinch pot is a three point rather than a 2 point style pinch assembly. The Globe is an unmarked 5 1/2" clear. The Boston Concord & Montreal did not have cast globes so this passes the laugh test. The frame has even discoloration that makes it look used. It is not a shiny, new look. All major rust has been removed so it displays well as is. / The Boston Concord & Montreal was an early New Hampshire road that ran from Concord up past Lake Winne to the Conn River in Woodsville/Wells River. They were merged with the Concord Railroad in 1889 to become the Concord & Montreal. This lantern dates to the 1875-1889 period. / Good condition.
