Original U.S. WWII Navy Type A Portable Multi-Purpose Signal Light With Battery

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is an excellent example of a World War II US Navy Type A Portable Multipurpose Signal Light. This kit was manufactured by the Delta-Electric Company. The Delta Electric Company was an American electronics manufacturer formed in 1913 in Marion, Indiana that produced lanterns, flashlights, automotive and bicycle lighting, battery tubes, horns, horn buttons, light switches, other battery-powered electrical parts, and bilge pumps. It was moved to Marion from an existing business in Chicago following a stock purchase.

These lights were used by USN personnel on landing crews or in small boats to signal nearby ships. The set is in good condition, and appears to be in working order. Included with the light assembly besides the cord is the 9 Volt battery. Both the battery and the box itself retain near perfect labels:

MULTI-PURPOSE SIGNALING LIGHT
PORTABLE TYPE A
CONTRACT NOs NXss 71351
DELTA-ELECTRIC CO
A 2091
MARION, INDIANA
MADE IN USA

The Battery is marked as:

9 VOLTS
BATTERY, DRY
DAAB07-80-D-6534
BURGESS INC.
FREEPORT, ILLINOIS, U.S.A.

As previously stated, the light appears to be working but is being sold "AS IS" due to age. This light comes as an untested example.

The metal carry case measures 14x10x9 and features the original data plate.
