I have a 243A with the numbers 1 and 3 on the bottom of the blue painted fount. It has a ball nut holding the black colored vent. A neighbor showed it to me when it was hanging up in his garage and told me $10 and it's yours. It has a red label 200 type globe and runs well. If I get a pic of it I will post. Tom

A nice lantern for $10. However, the early 70's motor home with mustard yellow and green interior and a chrysler 440 was the deal but I didn't have the money.

Hi All
This my first post since joining the forums page. So I thought this would be appropriate to make this my first post with my first 243. unfortunately someone felt the need to repaint it black but it is blue underneath and I am happy to have it.
