@Tony Press Yes, the lantern thread I created. Tony, you won't be disappomted in the 1A I suspect. They are brass except for the hood clips. I do have one that is brass except for the hood clips though the hood cover and the filler cap are copper. I have seen these lanterns scorned and I don't know why. They either don't sell or are virtually given away. Crackle paint - Hmm, interesting, I have never seen/noticed that on any I have seen. All the ones I've seen the paint is so poor it's nor funny and perhaps that is why they don't sell, regardless of their all brass construction and their history. Not that their history or construction is well known.
