Not such a good deal
Review by Mike
Does not have lenses. Now I'll have to spend more for special glass.
Nice But No Glass Lenses
Review by knickerbockerflat
The picture and description make you think that the lantern is complete with the glass or mica lenses that the unit is built to have. No lenses. I'll have to take it to a glass shop and spend even more money. Wish the description had warned of this. Would have been five stars if the lantern had been complete.
No lenses
Review by Bill
Listing led me to think that this lantern had glass lenses. It came without them, though it is clearly made for lenses.
