Anyone an "expert" on acetylene lamps? Is that to old for the list? I recently aquired an NOS Acetylene bicycle lamp in the box w/ all the instructions and literature but cant find anything on this lamp. The closest thing to a date is an 1897 patent. Anyone care to help or point me in the right direction?

thanks
