    My two E41 wartime lanterns, 1942. They're both in nice condition. The one on the right I restored several years ago. The one on the left needed just a duct off and no major restoration work.

    Note: The one on the right has a nice brass control cock. The pump is different on both.

    Very nice George, do you need two? If not I think I could have my arm twisted to take one off you!

    I hope you will send to someone who knows how to remove the large dents. Unless you appreciate the battle scars. I can only dream of owning a real E41 from that era. It is by far the only design i like from them, the early 300x too. Right now i have to be happy I have the Korean made E41.

    The dents will remain. These are "battle scars" or a "badge of courage" and I think it would be very wrong to remove them!
    They give the two lanterns character!
