I will post some photos on here of all the coleman stuff I take to walk the winds and the coleman lite up there.

what about you randy. you gota farm or will they give you a day off to come to wyoming like even a weekend.

I am going to try and find a shade for my coleman table lamp before walk the winds so I can take it to the coleman lite up.

it would add some flavor to all the lanterns.

Got My 228E, Jul-59, in friday, really clean but someone painted their initials on it in two places. Looks like fingernail polish, hopefully it will come off. Put on two new mantels and a little bit of fuel and she fired up nicely.

Saturday I got the 228C, B-46, and my Frankenstein. Turns out Frank is a 228B Jan-40. The 228C loses pressure quickly, so it will have to be rebuilt. The 228B value is frozen, and the tank rattles like a one arm 73 year old maracas player. It is going to be rebuild but not cleaned or polished at all. I going to keep this one a true beater. I need a wooden handle and a coffee can to fix up the homemade reflector setup.

Here is the 228C and Frank. ( sorry again only have a cheap V-cam for pictures)

Here is 228E and a few other in a little Mini light up. Only ones that had fuel in them this week. Left to right

Hey if I have any lantern in my collection that some one needs for a Birthday lantern, Plz let me know. I’ll trade them for an equal quality of the same model whatever year ( if it is one of my 228s ). 220s I not collecting but I pick up if I find them.

I’m also looking for May 1964 lanterns, besides the 200A ( Got 2 already ). According to the Coleman collectors web page listing, the only other model made in 1964 should be the model 202, 220F & 228F, 237A, and 252A Mil,

Here my list of lanterns

228B Jan 1940
228C B-1946
228D B-1948
228E Jul 1959
200A Oct 1961 Burgundy ( only trade for another Burgundy )
228F Oct 1969
220H May 1973
228H Apr 1974
228J Jul 1978
220J Mar 1977
228K Humm from what I see on the net they did not make the 228K. I might have to take apart a 220K and make a 228K just to F with the coleman collectors.

Was a little out of the hunting, lots of work, but managed to score a 413H for five bucks and a 426D for free....Now I guess I'll have to get to lantern hunting again.
