    I found this at a local junk shop moments after finding it's AGM equivalent. What a day!

    I have left the paint as is, even though it is rough. I generally do not repaint unless the paint is either 1) entirely missing (see my AGM USFS post), or 2) incorrectly repainted by a prior owner (see my 235 post).

    Small "button" green ventilator, Coleman stamped mica from another less deserving lantern, and running a R-55 generator.

    Note the faint service center scratch marks in the second image common to these government owned models.
