Lot 0701 Details

Description
A Boston Concord & Montreal Railroad brasstop lantern with Brady bell. The brass top has BC&MRR stamped in the usual Brady lettering. There are several variations on this maker and this one has no cast iron parts and a pinch pot base. I think the pinch pot is a replacement and it is very snug and I didn't ant to force it out. Usually these pinch pots have an additional row of intake holes to allow air to be sucked in from the bell. The globe si clear and unmarked. The globe fits very nicely and that is important on these lanterns. This is one of the best marked tops that I have every seen. A fine Boston & Maine Railroad predecessor from New Hampshire.
