Not sure if this is the right spot for this question but....

What is the thicker gauged wire with two hooks at the bottom of the brown envelope for?? It was with my 1952 Milspec.

Thanks Joe. No that SMP looked pretty bad when I got it. I posted pics when I found it, I’ll see if I can find them. It cleaned up well, the paint was in better shape than I thought.

This is what it looked like when I got it.  Had a missing quadrant pane, the knob was toast, and there was a lot of rust.  The worst part was inside the fount, which was covered in a black tar-like substance.  A little lye and it didn't take too long for it to come out.

Here's my latest project from the lantern workbench: A Coleman 252 Mil-Spec circa 1952. This is one I picked up at the Gettysburg convention in June, from "Maddawg".

The fount was rusty under the original decals, so I stripped the paint and did a repaint. Instead of staying with the original olive drab, I painted the fount a desert sand color. I've decided I'm not going to replace the decals.

I used a Coleman #21 mantle for this first test fire. Of course it quickly blew holes in the mantle. After the initial burn I installed a Peerless 2C-HG, and it's holding up just fine.

Typical of milspecs, this one really roars. I was going to put a screen in the burner cap to quiet it down, but I couldn't convince the burner cap to come off.
At some point I'll look for a US globe, or maybe order a custom...

Hey Bud!   Haven’t shared a post with you in a while crocodile.  Hope you are well.  I think this was probably my third or fourth mil spec lantern. I believe I now have 5+3 stoves. I just never bothered to sign up for this particular group until I ran across this posted recently. 

got lucky finding an unused B day at a decent price.

.    No, not going to apply the repro stickers. I like seeing the paint, and the typo on the repro stickers would drive me nuts!  Someone told me it would look great with some sort of NPS sticker... I might consider that.
