Very Nice 220E 8/56 Local Find

Postby SuperShady1 » Wed May 22, 2013 4:29 pm

Recent local CL find in my backyard.

This 220e is looking almost minty for its age. 1956 August with a clean all around feel.

I have not fire her up...but everything looks good. Has the striker in there.

Tell me what you think of the 220 model?? :thinking: :thinking:

That's a good find. I like finding the orphans that never got any attention from their first family!!!

Easy there Shady. Did anyone caution you about collecting Coleman lanterns? It can be addicting. Next thing ya know you'll fill the garage with lanterns and then next thing ya know your collecting stoves, then heaters. Then it turns into a quest for you birthday lantern. Family members sit you down and have an "Intervention". Hoarders will surely be next. Just saying. You have been warned! :D

Nice find on that lantern....220's are the real work horse of the Coleman lanterns. Sorry 200A people...but they made more of these than 200's. It's a bullet proof lantern, will last for probably a bazillion years. Now go fire it up! As a side note...for the strikers, some like them, others don't. They do drop some crud in the cage bottom that will cause rust over time. If you use it, remember to retract it after lighting. Doug

I agree Doug, :D but the 200A is just sexier than a 220..

Hmmm..You may have something there.. :thinking:

But the rounded globe is the icing on a 200A.
