Thank you

Nice work!  The bottom looks better than most of my nickel founts 😆

That looks new out of the box down to the correct globe. I love those nickel 220/228’s. Such a class lantern. Timeless. Really good work.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen the bottom of a fount look that good.

Mine is not even close to that shape nice job. I could not watch this 1948 rot in a wet basement so here it is. IMG_4609 (1).png  61039722669__F74B8EED-65A1-4461-9DAB-948170E6A9BD (1).jpg  IMG_4587 (1).jpg  IMG_4586 (1).jpg

Beautiful example of a great lantern.

     Dang @Greensandy I wish the nickel I find would be that nice. I’m sure I’ll come across something though.
My friends don’t call me “Lantern Levi” for nothin’,
if they did call me that.

Excellent job Alex. I wish my 228D’s turned out that nice. That’s a real sharp lantern.
