    Here is a 242A this one seems to be an early production of this model since they were suppose to have been made in 1935. These lanterns now have the air stem stile pump, and since the bail will accommodate the newer bulbish stile globe I will assume that this shape globe is correct. The vent on this model is changed as well. It has the newer shape, but lacks the slots that allow the vent to removed without removing the bail.
