Maybe 10-15 years ago, I bought several front coupler assemblies from this gentleman, Douglas Swanson. I tried his address in Illinois, but he no longer is there. Any info is appreciated...looking for this type of prewar coupler assembly for the Lionel 227-Series Steam Switchers.

Question: mine has absolutely no evidence of ever being or having stripes or writing on the sides other than the red keystone decal on the upper side. I’ve seen conflicting statements that all had 3 or 5 stripes except for a topic in another model railroad magazine where the lack of stripes was questioned by one of their subscribers.  

Thoughts? Suggestions? Ideas?

You could try The Train Tender.  Jeff has a lot of prewar parts.  He might have what you need.
