Interesting, it appears the body to be of a doped fabric, presumably over a fiber tube. Another indication of very early. By using other indicators, there was a large transition to the use of celluloid bodies by the end of 1942. More durable, corrosion resistant and waterproof. The Buship floating lanterns were tin bodies. The majority of the USCG approved types were of this more modern plastic body.

Cool stuff, man!
