I know where there's a 200a with case. But the black latch is missing. I know there's a guy on ebay selling the bigger ones. But don't think they will fit the small case will they. Anyone know for sure.

They seller won't come off the $100 price tag for lantern and case. But if I can't get a latch....... Kinda worth less IMO. I was planning on sellin of the lantern. But still.

On the larger 220/228 case I know there are 2 latches. I know for a fact that one of them is identical to the 200A case latch. I have swapped them. So you can find a latch and it does not have to come off a 200A case.

I am thinking any latch with the divider will fit either case. The latch without the divider will not fit the 200A case that I am aware of. 

Edit:  That’s not exactly true but to make simple, for your 200A case I believe you need a latch with the divider.  I am not aware of A 200A case that uses the other latch.

I don't NEED a case to transport a 200a if I wish too. But a yellow clam shell would be cool. I just hate to buy a broken one when I have options,,,lol. And I don't NEED another 200a.

I have a purdy red case and a 200a will fit in the Canadian green case. Notice the sticker on the inside.

Since you have other cases, the clamshell occupies much more room in the rig. I'd stick with the metal cases myself... if only I could find one.

Oh, yeah, and the clamshell only fits the late low-hat 200As. I generally don't keep those, so my one clamshell went away.

I'm glad you mentioned low hat. What years where those. I don't really know the difference. I noticed in the pic below there's a slight difference in the vent on a 57 compared to a 72. The older one seems to have a double hump in it.

Are any of these the low hats.

Cal, the one on the left is the low-hat. It's about 1/2" shorter overall than the high hat. Checking book now.... '63 was the transition year from high to low hat.

You can cram a high-hat into the clamshell, but it will deform the plastic. You could easily modify the clamshell to take the high hat, but considering the value of the clamshell case.... I decided not to, and just use the various DIY cases I already have. They fit better in the rig, anyway.

Now you have me second guessing my comment about the divider on the latch. Maybe the both are divided and one of them is hidden by yellow plastic. Sorry I may have just confused the situation but I am not home to double check.

Here is the lantern and case I can get. They say it's a 2/66 so my 2/73 Gold Bond will not fit this case with out modifying the case. Right?

Now I just gotta justify spending the money for a case I may never get a latch for,,,lol. And for a lantern that I should probably never take camping for some low life to steal. Or something happen to it.

I might rather put the money on a different lantern that I don't have.

Oh boy. I won't sleep tonight. Crap like this keeps me up at night,,,lol.

Cal, wait 'til a complete one comes along. Otherwise, you'll be buying another for the latch, but then you'll still have one without the latch, so you'll have to buy another for the latch.... Like a lantern or stove that just needs that one part, it'll never end.

That's probably wise advise. Or I could by the latch for $10 and see if it fits. If it doesn't I'm only out $10,,,lol. If it does I could sell the lantern to help pay for the case. Did I really just say sell a lantern. Ya right,,,lol.

The stove I wouldn't mind taking camping since it seems to have been on fire,,,,lol. . I'll start another thread on that.

But I really think this lantern may  be unfired. I have more pics for you guys to look at in my other thread.

If it's unfired should I leave it that way. Or since the fount is rusty should I fire that biotch up,,,,lol.

Your lantern has been fired. Can easily tell by the generator being blackened. Light it up and use it or not. It’s yours so you make that call.

Those pucks are handy but any closed cell foam with an equivalent or larger diameter than that will work or cut/modify and glue your own.  Looks like 1 in. or less thick.

Hey Cal, I wouldn't be in a rush to get that latch in the eBay listing you linked. That looks like the larger style latch from the 220/228/275 clam shell case which has the raised angled edges. From what I can tell, it won't fit the 200A case.

Might be best to just sit tight for now, like Timm said. However, if you're jonesing and end up buying the lantern & case, you should look for the small flat latch, not the large one with the raised angled edges. The flat latch on my 200A clam shell cases measures 1.5"W x 1.75"H. Both size latches do have the divider; the particular case design either hides it or shows it. 

These images from Jason's post are perfect comparisons. Note the difference between the two latches themselves in the top image - one is small and flat (on the 200 case), the other large with raised angled edges (on the 220/228/275 case):
D2EEA1B7-F7A9-4399-B358-C92BC04EB54C.jpeg

This image showing the flat latch was at one time used on both size clam shells, so the odds are *maybe* a little better...

Well I had a post that I did on my phone. But I guess I didn't click on "post",,,lol.

So the gal messaged me and said she really needed some cash and would take $75. So down the road I went. I mean you guys would have bought this for $75 right????   LOL.  She kept trying to sell me some kind of pay phones that she said she got out of the dumpster. I declined. Then after I gave her the cash I jokingly asked her if she got the lantern out of the same dumpster. She just smiled real big and said yes. Who would throw that away. Well I guess it's all trash with a missing bail and latch,,,lol. I'll take that trash all day.

The lantern isn't horrible. It's a 2/66, missing the bail. Came with 4 silk-lites. Case needs cleaned. Seems like the case needed something else but I can't remember what,,,,lol.

Oh ya. I need a latch. Anyone have one,,,,lol.
