From Greg Anderson was a 220/8C pump, valve and a nice Orange Fount.  From a logging town in Washington State.  "Maybe" it was from a Crown Zellerbach camp as their corporate color was a bright orange?  Who knows - but as close to a USFS lantern as I likely will be!

I sought out correct parts from my drawers and from others to make it into a 228C - and had some adventures along the way, thanks to everyone for their insight, help and part!
  • 6620 Burner Assembly with nickel generator and steel frame nut (Greg Anderson)
  • Vent, 220C marked collar/frame rest, correct valve wheel and instruction disc (Drew)
  • Frame, green sunrise globe, vertical ribbed vent nut (My Parts)
All comes together well - illusion hopefully complete!

Not as neat as the older ones.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

Nice 220C.  They have a story to tell too.
