Just bought a 1941 C 249 Seafoam & Nickle lantern online.The lantern appears to be all there & in good order, except for the missing preheat cup. Thought I would locate a preheat cup while waiting for it to arrive, problem is not sure which cup to get. Found pictures of post war year 249s with horse shoe type and some with a regular cup. Can not seem to locate a photo of an original 1941 Scout with it's cup. Figured 1941 nickle 249 lanterns are not many in number, but not a single pic to show which one to get. Thought maybe someone with more knowledge here could advise. Put a link with photos of the lantern below.

I have a B/42 with the copper preheating cup, steel generator, had a steel burner but replaced with brass one because the original was shot.

See page 45 under lantern parts to see what our sponsor, Oldcolemanparts has.  Super rare item to get an original horseshoe priming cup.

So would the "Pre-Heater Cup 249 Cast Aluminum" be the correct one? Would be OK with a reproduction, just wondering if should go with the brass cup or horse shoe type?

Horseshoe-shaped cup if you could find one. Otherwise, any fitting cup would do.

Thanks, plan on using it, but would like it to look right too.

Your Canadian 249 dated C 41 would have the early aluminium cast preheater cup. By my records, 1941 was the last year that type of cup was used on that model, having been used since 1938. See discussions in a previous post here...https://www.colemancollectorsforum.com/post/one-of-my-favorite-nos-parts-249-p-cup-10589731?pid=1311980370.

I have two Canadian 249 lanterns dated in 1941. One dated A 41, and another dated like your C 41. Both have the cast aluminium preheater cup with the original slit in the side for the the leader string wick. Below is my picture of of those two.
OCP sells a reproduction of that early type of cast aluminium cup, last time I looked.

May need to make a clip to prevent the cup from sliding up and ruining the mantle.

Thanks for posting pictures of your 249s, those are 2 great looking 1941 lanterns! Just what I was searching for.  Had no luck finding photos of a 1941. Will order one from OCP, a reproduction is  better than none. The link to that previous post had a lot of good information.

Yes, I'm not surprised you had problems finding examples of a 1941 dated Canadian 249, as that year is is a very elusive year to find one of.
I'm pleased to have two nice examples found here downunder. They are a great Coleman model.
