    Shipping Records first entry began July 1925 and continued throughout November 1930.
    The burner support rod diameter was increased to 5/16” in 1924 (lanterns and lamps) so these LZ 427 had this upgrade from their beginning.
    Frame bail attachments were round pin changing to up position tabs in early 1926.
    Fuel cap was standard ribbed wing type of the era.
    Flower pattern pump knob is unique to these totally unbranded lanterns.
    Mica globe.

    I have not had the opportunity to inspect any examples assembled after 1926 at this time, for confirmation of anticipated component changes from 1927-1930. I will add this information if or when it’s available.
