Just picked this lantern up and it seems to be  in reasonable shape and pumps up and holds air. The mica is not broken or ragged Pretty fair but could use cleaning if possible.  looks like the nickle  should polish up ok. Stamped 6   4    nothing on the bottom can the collective group tell me more and what it is. Had fuel in it and was terrible smelling. Used it to light the camp fire. Also found a clean 220E  with very nice fount and nearly perfect vent.  A bit picture heavy Click image for larger version - Name: IMG_3418.jpg, Views: 100, Size: 125.85 KB Click image for larger version - Name: IMG_3419.jpg, Views: 102, Size: 125.90 KB Click image for larger version - Name: IMG_3420.jpg, Views: 104, Size: 139.09 KB Click image for larger version - Name: IMG_3422.jpg, Views: 102, Size: 108.56 KB Click image for larger version - Name: IMG_3423.jpg, Views: 96, Size: 128.69 KB

Nice April, 1926 427!  Mica looks to be in pretty nice condition.  Congrats! 
Sweet course weave mantles, too.

Coleman 427 dated April, 1926.  The fuel cap appears to be original and uses a slightly different gasket than the regular 3 piece gasket.  Very nice!

When it's.....6.....4...the left digit is 1926 and the 4 is the fourth month of the year, April. 

Yes, for info there is plenty to find using the Search function up at the top of this page - just typein "427" and you'll get more than you need. Also The Book has much info and Cigar Mike had some for sale a couple months ago.

Canadian's are not this weird with their dating, usually.

Amazing that something 93 years old can be back to normal and operating as it did then. I spent 3-4 hours fettling it but  nothing major not finish polished yet but thanks for helping me ID it yesterday,How does one clean the Mica and frame safely. I have a bucket of Evap-o-Rust but am afraid of the mica Click image for larger version - Name: IMG_3424.jpg, Views: 80, Size: 81.66 KB Click image for larger version - Name: IMG_3427.jpg, Views: 81, Size: 51.40 KB

Bob, you are ready for The Book!

Mica can go in Evaporust or Citric Acid to clean it up, but make sure it is a clean solution.

Wait until you have a few hours with the management out of the way and shove it in the dishwasher. I have cleaned lots like this and it works a treat. ::Neil::

I've put in many mica globes in evaporust successfully and have never had a problem with the mica panels. Metal comes out very nicely with a little patina on it. And I've rinsed those globes after the immersion with water and let it air dry. At times, I've sprayed the panels with glass cleaner or some other cleaner to rinse off the soot and dirt and rubbed lightly with my fingers, all under lightly running water. Others here will have differing methods of cleaning mica globes.

I need a new pin for the stop collar on the valve shaft. It was missing when I disassembled it. Does anyone know the correct pin diameter. Looks around .050 .060inch  I cut a piece of Mechanics wire to use for safety but it is too soft to be long term fix. also the leather pump cup is smaller than any of  my later lanterns. I need to order from Mike a few items to complete this. I guess the "Book" is on the list too now

Joe's way of cleaning them is better than citric acid.

I suppose citric can work if it's monitored well however I left one in too long and basically disintegrated much of the metal. Won't happen again. 

Sorry Bob, don't know the diameter of that pin.

Another question. I see most of the pics I can find show the notch in the lower flange above the Fill cap. I aligned mine with the Pump because it looked better  to me and was nearly touching the pump body.   . Which is correct.  both ways have the bail going diagonally instead of front to back as on the newer ones I have.

I determined the hole in the valve shaft  is likely .055 ish. I had a .053 drill bit and it is pretty fair but tiny bit loose.  When I take my 220E apart later this week I will measure it too. I believe those are larger diameter since the shaft is larger. I found I was able to substitute the spare Bump cup from my M1950 stove and get everything working normal  I really like this lantern. and thanks for the suggestions to use Evap-O-Rust on the cage and Mica. They cleaned up pretty nicely and really made the project a bit nicer
