    These lanterns are almost identical to the 300 cp version. The only differences I can see are the larger control wheel and a different spirit cup. I assume they were made from 1957 and for not very long as they seem to be quite rare.

    The 350cp version of the 930 is listed from 1954 to 1957. They come in two variations where this one is the second variation. That wheel was introduced in 1957, so it is a fair bet to say this one is from that year.

    So I got the date right then? More by luck than design. Two versions??? There would be when I thought I was doing well to find this one. Thanks for the info. ::Neil::
