100% Original Civil War Era 1850s-1860s Whale Oil "bullseye" Tin Lantern Choice For Sale

100% Original Civil War Era 1850s-1860s Whale Oil

100% original Civil War era 1850s-1860s whale oil (two small wicks) "bullseye" lantern. Lantern is entirely hand riveted and soldered from tinned iron, with a complete intact non-damaged (glare on lens in images is from the camera flash) hand blown glass lens, unlike later lanterns of this type and tinware in general. This one being in whale oil is probably circa 1860. These are probably the most common type of lantern to be seen in Civil War images, see above for one. Beautiful condition, still has most of its original exterior dark japanning finish on it. Juts pulled out of a house here in Maine. Excellent condition for its age, and a choice example, just shows age, see pics.Price of shipping has been increased again by the USPS, please see posted shipping costs, blame them not me!READ BELOW BEFORE offerDING. BY offerDING ON MY sales YOU AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING.
Shipping price is listed in the sale, please see it before you offer. If not happy with shipping price please please do not offer. Yes if you win multiple items I always combine shipping.
Sorry everyone but I have to state the following now due to recent problem children after selling more then 2,000 items on with no problems.
1.) If not happy with a item or other issue such as packing, service, etc. before leaving negative or neutral response or a low seller star rating on shipping costs, shipping time, item as described, etc you agree to contact me before you leave such response so we can reach a civil solution, example- return for a refund, etc.
2.) PayPal payment only. Payment is due within 5 days after the end of sale unless we have worked out prior arrangements, methods of payments, etc.After this time period has expired I will begin the unpaid item process and relist the item. With Paypal now there is no excuse to wait for 10 days to pay for a $15.00 item. Seriously, if you cant afford to pay for a $15 item you should not be buying anything.
3.) For international buyers outside of Canada if your item is over $50 I will only mail via express mail. Yes this is expensive but I’m tired of being ripped off by dishonest people and incompetent foreign postal services.
4.) Yes I always combine shipping.
5.) Postage is listed in the sale, this covers all insurance and if over a certain amount signature confirmation. Please do not ask me for a cheaper method, if I offer free shipping, etc. The only time this is different is when you win multiple items at the same time from me then I combine shipping, see above.
6.) Please look at the pictures of the item you are offerding on as well as read the item description. Ask questions about the item before you offer on the item and you get a response back from me not afterwards. If I cant respond back to you before the end of the sale and you go ahead and place a offer on the item and you win it and the item does not fit your mental picture sorry but you now own the item and its yours. What you see in the photo is the item you are getting. If the item is well used in the picture you will get a well used item, not a mint or excellent condition item.
7.) I’m a one person show here. 99% of the time your item will go out within 72 hours of you winning it. Sometimes I may be away for a weekend, sick, etc so may be up to 5 days. You can track your item via on your "won" page. I do all my shipping thru USPS click and ship so please don’t be dishonest and try to say you never got a item when there is a digital online confirmation you signed for it with your name, time and address that you did.
