I’ve been looking for a 237 lantern for awhile and haven’t found any in the wild, until yesterday. Found this at a local flea market, complete with a late model globe that I broke while trying to get the bail off the first time. The bail ends were tweaked a bit and were jammed in the frame holes. Put on a red letter 220 pyrex to test run it. Only needed a mantle and a filler cap gasket, and a slight straightening on the bail ends. Ended up paying a collector’s price for it, the guy had 80 on it, we settled on 60, but now I have one. Chinese globe and Peerless 111 mantles on the way from OCP. Now I’m searching for the right globe, since this is Nov of 58, I’m guessing it’s a red sunrise (late 58) or maybe a green sunrise (early 58).
