5 Bucks Well spent... IT's ALIVE!!!

I was visiting my dad this weekend and as usual we went to a few yard sales. When I came across this little hunny:

With a $5 price tag the money practically jumped out of my wallet. :D
My first and only burgundy. This one will get a new globe and burner and a mild clean-up and nothing else.

All done! The one thing that I did notice is that the logo is way off center. I put the valve back with it centered between the pump and the fill cap but looking at the picture it looks like Coleman just centered it over the logo so I think I will do that.
