This somewhat harder-to-find 8" version of the iconic Beistle lantern seems to be in remarkable shape. I take it that the slot and tab top separator bar is missing. I'd also love to see how the honeycomb sides look from two side shots. This is arguably the finest lantern design Beistle ever issued. The seller is a long-time, knowledgeable collector. After verifying the missing top bar and seeing some side pics, this may be the time to scoop this up.
09/15 Update: This awesome, iconic Beistle lantern fetched a strong $1,269.66. This design has such a strong presence that it becomes the center of any display. Wow!
