220B air tube question

#1

Post by D421 »

Hey experts, I'm working on a November 31 220B.

I noticed the patent date on the air tube has been cut off.

Did coleman just cut lamp air tubes down. Or is this an old replacement.

The rest of the lantern seems un messed with.

What’s the overall length of the 220 B air tube?

Early ones were a 2 piece, a shorter tube screws in from the bottom where the connection attaches.

Right at 6 1/2 inches. The generator in in about the right depth.

I just can't see why coleman would chop off the patent date. It's hard to tell but it looks like the threads are nickeled.

Probably just missed the stamping die a little. Worth twice as much now since it's rare Dominic 😁

It's a November 1931. It has the screen on the F/A tube, but does not have a brass direction disc. That disc may not be original. The rest looks like it has never been apart. It's in pretty good shape but was sure gummed up. Did the full deal cleaning it. Runs well now. It had half a sunshine globe.

Looking for 10/59 lantern or fount for rebuilder.
Prefer a 228E, but not that set on it.
Any 10/59 lantern or fount.

Most of it is real nice. I carefully positioned it in front a tree to hide the porcelain loss around the vent hole. The rest is without a chip.
