I picked up this November of 1928 Slant.  I figured for $10 how wrong can I go.  Unfortunately, the PO welded (braised, soldered, JB welded???) a galvanized reflector to two opposite uprights of the frame.

My question is, what's the best way to remove this piece and leave the frame as close to original as possible? Slant1 small.jpg  Slant4 small.jpg  Slant5 small.jpg  Slant2 small.jpg  Slant3 small.jpg

Oof. 
I cannot authoritatively answer your big question, so for once I'll stay shut-up with my bright ideas... lol. 
I'm completely jealous of your find(s).  You're money ahead just on the fuel cap... but so very much potential to revive... ooh...

If it's soldered you can just de-solder it with a propane torch. Welded, would be a bit tougher. You'd have to try to grind it off without ganking up the posts. (Dremel, for fine control...) Me, I'd just leave it, it's an inventive mod and not horribly done like some I've seen. 
By the way, that's a 228, so go get a parts 228E or earlier with a good vent to donate to it!

Gavercronos: Is it a 228 because of the width of the bail?  Has someone replaced the 228 vent with a 220 vent?  I cleaned up the vent and thought it looked awfully good for 90 years old.  Also, would it be a 228 or an L228?

Luke, I'm not Willcat but - yes, the width of the bail tells you it is supposed to sport a wide brim top hat. 

As for the 'weld' or whatever it is a small butane torch will release JB Weld and melt soft solder so I'd try it first. If it doesn't succeed you might just want to leave it as mentioned above.

The width of the bail is what tipped me off. A Slant 220 would have had a brimless vent and the bail coming straight up from the frame. Your lantern is sporting a later (mid 1930s-1963) 220 B-E vent right now (which still looks really good for its age). 
As for whether it's a L228 or a 228, the distinction is hazy, I think it was mostly just Coleman abandoning the use of "L" to identify lanterns in its lineup, coinciding with the appearance of bakelite valve wheels. Pedantry aside, yours has the bakelite wheel, so it's "just" a 228.
