The most accurate way to list this lantern would be as being either a B or a BX, but given that it could be either (by the same box logic, without it, he also can't prove its a B), the claim is certainly plausible. He's clearly not trying to pass off a fake, so let it stand as advertised and it's a matter for the buyer.
The parts catalog also has its own definition of what is a BX (valve), but that also has been debated.

My original comment was made in jest. I find the whole box argument a bit silly.
No disparagement intended. If I hadn’t just bought one at the Gettysburg gathering I might spring for this one.

Me and Doug are buddies and have talked about this at length... I can promise you he was just cracking fun... Living in a remote village in Alaska can bring a guy to a new level for fun 😁

Sorry, I can't hear the name Doug without thinking of that Terry Tate office linebacker bit "That's a long distance call, Doug!".
Sorry for the hijack. Carry on with you regularly scheduled classified.
