1961 200A burgundy. My second one.

Postby campmaster-k » Mon Apr 15, 2013 3:50 pm

I was at the flea on Sunday and scored this awesome 61 burgundy. $ 15. The vent is chipped but I have a perfect one the other burgundy. The tank is very clean and the paint is just ok but these are hard to find in the wild.

I have only come across three or four burgundy 200 A's in the wild. I was able to capture two.

Not all the good junk. I cant find any gold bond or Sears anyplace in California. At least not in my neck of the woods.

I must admit it was a real thrill to find this lantern. I would have paid the dude double for it.

In the 70s Coleman made a bunch of camping equipment to be purchased with Gold Bond stamps. They were all made a mustard yellow and it was for only a year or two so they are kind of rare. Also Coleman made lanterns and stoves for Sears in some funky colors.

nice find. My burgundy was covered with black paint. When I removed the black paint from the vent I discovered it had a lot of pits in the porcelain like someone shot it with a shotgun.

That's crazy that you and I each found a burgundy in the wild on the same day!
