Picked up this pair off of a certain List today. Inquired about the 242B and we settled on a price and the seller soon followed up offering the 200A for a fair price. This is my second 242B and this one is in much better condition than my other one. The nickel is very good the main blemish is someone scratched 2 letters on the fount. On the bottom the stamp is really hard to decipher. At times it looks like a 6 or a 9 or a 5 or a B? Is there another way to date this one? You can see the stamp at about 4 o,clock just off center.
The globe I’m guessing is an original straight Coleman and Pyrex.
The 200A is a 11/66 and in great shape. Came with the box and literature.
Any ideas on dating the 242B?
