... but you'll have to come here to take her out - she doesn't get out very much, but when she does she really gets lit, so be careful.
<yeah, OK>

What do you want to see or know?

-228B
- No stamping on side of fount
- Setscrew, so assumed short E-block
- 220B lightly stamped on bottom of fount
- Dates, if any, thoroughly obscured by tin plating.  There might be a "7" to the left of the sun.
- &.
- Sunshine of the Fount Bottom
- Al direction disk
- Cotter pin bail and round frame hole
- Not a winged cap.  3-pc ni-plated.
- Tin drips on the collar and frame
- Crimped collar

Thank you for any and all ideas and questions.

brim on vent?

228.  Brim on vent...  the vent is 'identical' to a 10-36, and also very similar to a 3/58 228E.
The vent shows evidence of a formerly captive nut on the underside as well as that hole being enlarged.

Eel,, the damage to the vent was caused by having the vent nut on too tight when the lantern was started cold.
The metal around the nut expands and does this a little bit and then the previous owner would crank the nut down again the next time they fired it up and after several startups it would eventually even pull through the vent, if a washer wasn't added.

Hi Greg -
 Yes - thank you!  List of characteristics closely resembles responses to Luke's points, in sequence.  I haven't seen inside the fount so I don't know about the fuel pickup, and the lantern came to me without a globe so I cannot speak to that point.

Edit: fuel pickup is unscreened.

There's a lot of that - you can see a deep indentation just the size of the standard nut.  But there is also the surprisingly circular loss of both top and bottom glaze around the nut.

Dave: The vents with the captive nuts would have three little indents around the Inner ring on the bottom.

So nobody wants to hazard a guess, and nobody has any other datapoints to check?  I don't get a clear answer from using Luke's list on this one.

Edit to add: No mesh on end of fuel tube.

I'd have to guess 1933-34. 

And who's Luke?
