Does anyone know what the model number of the Gray & Davis lanterns on this car is? There is a great close-up pic.

I've attached a picture of my great grandfather in his Northern c1904/05 & they are the same lights. I've got Gray & Davis 819's on the car now. They are not original. See attached pictue.

I'm kind of guessing but maybe a No. 819 or 828? I have a G & D flat back (as opposed to the currently more popular bullet back) lamp but have not located it yet.

They can find anything apparently! Good luck!
