    Hello. I am brand new here and I am not sure where to post this but I will give it a shot.

    I acquired this lantern a few days ago. I have attached images and am trying to figure out what it might be worth. I did some research on it but haven't been able to find another one to compare pricing. You can sort of make out the patented markings on side of the air tube as shown in the photo. I just cant tell from the dates. If anyone knows anything I would greatly appreciate the help! Cheers ~

    Hi and welcome, Brooke!

    eBay is not the end-all, be-all, in terms of actual prices, but it will give you some idea on what people are willing to spend on an item.

    You can go to eBay and enter
    dietz no2 blizzard lantern

    in the search box, then on the left side (if you're on a laptop or desktop) filter on Sold items. The app, you can use the Filter drop down and choose Sold.

    You're welcome. Others may be able to offer more in the way of details about your particular lantern.

    I would suspect that there are nuances that make one more desirable and/or valuable than others (including condition and whether it's been painted or altered in any way). Case in point: If you sort the sold listing on highest price, you'll see one sold for $207 US Dollars. Most were a lot lower.
