Fun game but you will have to dumb it down for me lol. I caught that the clocking seems off and all the nickel seems like it doesn’t belong but more than that is beyond me.

They forgot to plate the:
  • Bail
  • Elbow
  • Burner tube assy
  • Genny Nut
  • Pricker, packing nut and the main valve body
  • burner frame nut and stud
  • and the vent
Did I miss anything?

What do I win?

If it is a 202 it should have a gold band around the decal . So I don't think that is right either .

Early 202 with 19 rays, wrong collar and vent.  What a nice looking lantern, Murff!
Mark

Murff
I agree, it is pretty. 

The fount is a 5/55 202 that came from a bunch of parts. The decal, or what's left of it, is original.

The vent is a fresh IPE restore.

The frame rest is, obviously, off a 200A.

It's clocked wrong because the valve, to get it tight, had to go all the way in because a previous owner did that.

The valve wheel is out or the parts donor supply as are the valve and other parts.

The burner frame has been coated in Chromex because it looks good and somewhat original.

What is Chromex?
