While negotiating with Mike Sine on a seafoam vent 237, I mentioned that I had run out of fettle projects. He offered me this 228C that was in need of TLC.
I picked it up in Gettysburg, brought it home and posted a WTB for the parts it needed. Warren responded with all of the parts I needed at great prices and quick shipment!
This one now goes into the fettle queue, probably for work in late summer or autumn.

Many thanks to Mike and Warren for this cool lantern, my first C model. I think it will clean up nicely. Somehow I like the look of this one better than most of my other big hats. Something about the big single yellow decal  and the threaded pump cap...

Pics as received, and with parts from Warren.

Any suggestions on lifting that fuel/graphite drip from the decal without damaging it?

Use a soft rag and mineral spirits. They should take that gas stain right off without lifting the decal or harming the paint. I've been using it since The Woodswatchman recommended it--he knows paint.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.
Walk a mile in a man's shoes before you criticize him--then you're a mile away, and he has no shoes.
