Re: my latest "in the wild" find

Made a little progress on this yesterday. As suspected, the sand in the fount was load bearing. ONce I got some out the bottom caved in in one very thin spot, and the valve bung released without much encouragement. Found a spare, screw-on style F/A tube in the fount!

3rd leg on the 426A?

Noticed this "channel" on the back of my 426a while giving it a test drive. It's pretty much the same as the leg channel, and I would guess right about where it would be on the 413. It is on both 426A's that I have had, but not on my 426C or 443. Or am I missing something obvious? PXL_20211129_20521...

Transition point may have been March, but certainly not outside the realm of possibility that your lantern was assembled in March, or later, with a 1 stamped fount plate. There are quite a few "examples" of this scenario I've read about. I dont think we have to assume it was a vent/fount swap.
