200a 700 lantern question

Post by MiguelHerbert »

can anyone tell me when the 200a lantern morphed into the 200a 700 version? I'm assuming around 1973?

and--are they considered rare? I'm new to the collecting gig.

I had it it mind it was when they switched to green? Mid 1980? Someone will know your answer.

Only at my house 😁 all joking aside I wouldn't say rare, but not nearly as common as the red 200As. They were only produced 80-83 if I remember correctly.

Toby is right. The 700 is the color code. 200A195 was red and the 200A700 was green. The change happened around 8-80. Examples of red and green versions have been found with that date.
