    I am located in central Illinois and was wondering if this item was an old taillight or possibly an old light for railroad worker use. Made by Dietz. I found it on my stepfathers property who is deceased so I have no idea where he got them.

    Thanks. I thought it might be an old tail light because it most resembled the item pictured below.

    One of their adds say they are the largest MFG in the world.....
    so I'm sure yours can be identified...

    The red dot may be more unique than the lantern itself !!
