200A and 202 reproduction
frames back
in stock.

About a year ago a guy at work asked me to fix up a red 200A for him to take ice fishing.  
Apparently I did too nice of a job and he has left it as a shelf queen. A few weeks ago he told me if I find a couple of nice user red 200As that he would take them. 
A couple of weeks ago I found a lantern FS in IN on FB Marketplace. 
I drove down and picked it up. Turns out the seller is a forum member here. Semi new collector but he has very discriminating taste . He is going to fit in well on the forum as well as our Michiana collectors group. 
As I was driving home I remembered the guy at work wanted a couple of more lanterns so I had to make a return trip. 
I serviced the pumps, replaced the filler cap gaskets and added ice fishing worthy Made In China globes.

Very nice.
That's what I love best about this hobby, putting these light machines back into service!

Compared to the only 200 I found in the wild. Those are near mint lol. Those  will look good at a ice fishing shack.

Cosmetically I didn’t do anything to these lanterns other than adding the MIC globes. These weren’t $8 lanterns either

You put vintage Peerless on them also.  Sam Blank once told me that if the green band at the top has turned that tan color, there's a good chance they are thorium.

There's been an alarming increase in the number of things I know nothing about.
