Collecting mining artifacts can be an enjoyable reflection on the history of the United States, and in particular, the Industrial Revolution........after all......without mining many of the luxuries that we enjoy today would not even have been possible.

This is a great little antique "Guys Dropper" miner's headlamp manufactured by the Shanklin Manufacturing Company and has patent dates on the top from 05-02-12 to 07-21-25. The lamp hasn't been cleaned and has all it's patina intact and shows its age. It appears to be brass with a copper base. It does have a cracking on the sides of the top. The interior is white and crusted from use(if you would like a photo of this please let me know).

This is a great collector piece, and an awesome piece of decor. Due to its small size it would make a great accent.

Dimensions: 2 3/4" inches wide by 4" tall.
