Buckeye Dash Lamp No.2 
Also known as the  No.2 Royal Dash Lamp Discontinued in 1897

Dietz Buckeye Dash:
The Dietz Buckeye evolved from the #13 Dash Lamp made in the 1890's, and is basically the same lantern as the square tube Victor with the addition of a reflector with a rear clamp to attach it to the dashboard of a horse drawn wagon.   (The Victor was also produced in a short lived "side lamp" version for attaching to the side of a wagon.)  Where the #13 Dash Lamp had a square "Top Lift," the Buckeye had a side lift in the same style as the Victor.  The Buckeye was produced from about 1895 into the 1940's in at least 5 different variations.

  The #2 size version of the Buckeye was the extremely rare Dietz Royal Dash.
