I picked this up at a sale today for $14. Collar only says model#. Pump valve has 2 screws, check valve is standard screw in type. Mixing tube is stamped 3000 on one side and 3 on the other, air tubes have rust spots like they may be steel. Fuel cap does not appear to have paint on it. Stamped 4 9 on bottom of tank, is that April of 1939?  What do you think??

Looks like a nice painted 242C. Those globes were only used a year or two if I remember right. Nice find ðŸ‘

The no-model 242 is a painted 242C, 9/'44.

I only have the collar from one. Collar is galvanized steel, unlike the usual nickel-plated brass found on 242s.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

Yep,  I have one of those Sept 1944 242C's.  They did not have a stamp on the collar, there was a white painted stencil on the bottom indicating what it was.  First month produced after the war production pause.   (photo example not mine)

Fount is brass, collar is galvanized and after closer inspection I do see some traces of white paint on bottom of fount, someone may have wiped the white paint off for some reason.
Thanks guy's!
