Re: michigan consolidated gas company lantern
The old style models are all supposed to have ended production in 1946. I ask that you examine it again using magnification to be sure the 8 is not a 6 or a 3. Having misread many dates myself, I know that it pays to double check.
Except for the wagon and other specialty lamps, Dietz lanterns were not painted until 1942 when they started gray paint. In 1950-1952 they were metallic green and 1953-1956 they were metallic blue.
