So I posted before about a 413D I got recently.  The more I read about the 413 series the more i think mine is either some kind of weird transition or a frankie, or both.  Here are the oddities..

It has a 413D stamped on the case. But the outside of the case is burgundy (the same Coleman color as my burgundy 200A) - the inside is standard Coleman green.  I sanded the paint in a small spot on the bottom and there is no green underneath.  So either it is a repaint job that was done by an expert who only painted the outside, or ... not sure.  

It also has a burgundy colored tank like that found on a 213E or F - the ones that have the odd generator with the removable pricker.

Easy to swap out a tank for a new one or it could have been a transition and they had some D cases and no D tanks? 

But that paint job is a puzzle. Anyone seen one like it before? Did they ever make red 413s?

The case is rusted out a bunch on the back lower corners and I'm trying to decide whether it is worth it to restore it - maybe weld or pop rivet some patches... or use it for parts...

I definitely vote for a repaint. The factory wouldn't have done that, it would take too much time. It's also 10 years before the 200A burgundy. I don't recall seeing removable tips, now you're making me go out in the garage and dig around...

At least the case is repainted, look at how uneven the paint is, not a smooth finish.

[I completely edited out my answer about the pricker and put it on your other 413D thread - that removable pricker is an earlier feature, not later.] You don't show a photo of the fuel tank, I presume it's the "submarine" 413E style - two-piece with the big seam? I've never gotten around to collecting photos of 413D's, they've always looked the same, with the round tank. I would guess yours is a replacement tank. I do have a brochure that shows a 426A and 413D with the newer style tanks, but I don't put much stock in that because I've seen so many instances of "mistakes" on the artwork or model designations on these advertising flyers. I don't think they can always be trusted. If yours was mint-in-box, maybe I'd give some credence to it being a transitional variant, but I vote for it being a Frankie.

The photo does not do the paint job any favors - the case it dirty - but that repaint job is very nice.  

And the tank is a sub style.

So unless someone else chimes in, the votes are clear - it is a repainted frankie....
