At first it can be very confusting with between 10 and 20 variations on a single lantern model, but taking your time and talking with established collectors can really help you get going. As you can tell, it would be quite a task just to collect all the versions of one type of lantern!

This can be very confusing to new collectors, but just consider how it happened. A lantern manufacturer produced a given model from several different pieces, such as the base, verticals, horizontals, font, font holder, smoke dome, bail, and globe. If the company refined or changed one of these pieces it frequently still used the other pieces instead of reinventing the entire lantern at once.

Experts can sometimes date a lantern very precisely based on small features of individual pieces by knowing when new developments occurred. For this reason it is crucial to get expert help in dating and identifying exactly what type and period of lantern you have because values can vary widely based on very small differences.

Skillfully performing such magical transformations by digital image restoration requires considerable subjective judgment, artistry, originality , and creativity, as well as technology.
