I have a labeled 200a but it is stamped 8-51 on the fount. I keep reading that the 200a came in in 1952. Someone please clarify this for me.

200A.  The 200 was only made until April 1951.  Later Christmas lanterns are 200A.  Early 200A Christmas lanterns had no label, later ones, like the nice one you have, had labels.  The first 200A’s were all Christmas lanterns.  Maybe you are thinking of the red black band 200A being 1952.

i THINK a 200 is a brass fount and 200 A is steel ? that , that was the difference ? not the date but the steel determines whether its an A or not .

If that's the original paint, wax.   Unless you don't care about seriously reducing the value.  At a minimum, I suggest cleaning it up and waxing it before you decide on painting.

I would always wax over a full repaint if I can. Would Mother's work or is there something better ?

I was asking which wax is best for a lantern. This is "OL-51" that I use for light ups.

I would never paint a Christmas unless there was 0 paint left on it. That will make a nice lantern. Polish the best u can and enjoy.

Sorry guys. The repaint was meant as a "bad" joke.
