Well Slow good post but I'm surprised nobody else has replied yet! My worst lantern was this October 1929 Canadian 327 I found in Walnut Iowa, I was going to pass it up then I saw it was made in Canada. Of course I got a new Fred Kuntz Mica shade and I cut the lip off a 220E ventilator to copy the original.
