Coast to Coast
I bought this from another collector a few weeks ago, and just got around to picking it up.  It’s a neat little lantern.  It’s not quite like a Canadian or US 242B.  These were made long after the 242B went out of production.  Mine is dated 6/57.  I’m not sure why they didn’t give it its own name.  It has a 200 style pump cap, a smaller valve wheel, the vent is taller, the fount is a little different shape, and the lantern itself is a bit taller.  The globe is not original to this lantern, but is is made in England.  Oregon Michael sent me a picture of the original etched globe.  I hope to find one someday.  Anyone have one the want to sell?

What a great piece to go with your collection. It’s interesting to see the little nuances that separate this this one from the rest.

Very nice condition, you lucked out as many made in England lanterns have poor plating.
Just a note, the Cdn 242B was made until the mid 60's.

Thanks for the correction.  I had never noticed that in the book before.  I just assumed it was dropped from production with the introduction of the 200.  I also didn’t realize there was never a Canadian 242C.  I’m guessing there is no difference between a later Canadian 242B and an English one, beyond the fount stamp.  Most of the information on the English model seems to be conflicting.  Some collectors think they were made in Canada.  Some say they were made in Canada and assembled in England.  Others swear they can remember seeing actual production facilities in England.  I’m not sure why there is not more concise information on a fairly new product.  I’m guessing it must be well documented somewhere.

The stamping is also found on the 237 England model also.
The Cdn 242B was made till mid 60's but for export I have been told, then Canada introduced the 242D and ending with model 242E.
An England 242B is a great item in any collection.

Ok.  Thank makes sense that the late Canadian models were for export.  Any idea what the globe would have been for?  Just a replacement globe made in England?
