Does anyone know what this old railroad signal lantern might be worth? It appears to have been repainted at one time. There is a burner inside but I don’t know what other internal parts, if any, I should check for to see if they are missing or broken.

I do know the lenses (two green, two red) are plastic replacements. I’ve seen these lanterns sell on eBay from about $50-$300. I was hoping someone who collects these lanterns might give me a more approximate value for this lantern as it sits. Any help is appreciated!

It’s nice. Without knowing anything about them..my guess would be $150-$200?? Just a shot from the hip.
