327 from I believe late 20s through to the 30s.
My friends don’t call me “Lantern/lampie Levi” for nothin’,if they did call me that.
Looking for bday lanterns 8/38, 8/41,
10/25, and 8/07
The biggest lie I tell myself is ”I don’t need to write that down, I’ll remember it.”

The steel on coarse steel wool is the same hardness as fine steel wool. Same steel.

Big wool makes big scratches.

Yes-absolutely. now is the time to have that fount plated, then you can use it as a mirror. The factory used nickel over brass. You could have it plated with copper, polished, and then plated with nickel. That will make it very smooth, and the shine will last.

Now that the plating is gone, you can eliminate the scratches, but it will take patience. Use 0000 steel wool and Mother's, which will then leave you with very fine scratches. You can then use a rag with Mother's to eliminate the scratches, or at least render them virtually invisible.

Know for future reference, the nickel plating is often very thin. Even 0000 is generally too abrasive, but if used gently enough, can help with cleanup. Even if you only used a rag with Mother's to begin with and started seeing dots as you polished, those dots would be where you burned through the nickel and the brass is starting to show.
