Birthday Lanterns Wanted

Postby TPMcGinty » Thu Jan 16, 2014 1:49 pm

A great suggestion was made in another thread to have a "Birthday Lanterns Wanted" thread. Please include as much information as you feel necessary. Here is some examples of lantern requirements you might use:

Manufacture Month/Year
Make
Model
Type (White Gas/Unleaded Gasoline/Kerosene/Propane)
Color
Condition
Price Range

If you can think of any other requirements I should add, please let me know.

Well, the title does say "Birthday lantern" ...

and since I have a birthday coming this year and no lantern ... I just thought I'd ask.


Any chance anybody here has a 1-58 lantern for sale ?

Thanks in advance,
Tac

Here is my wish

Manufacture Month/Year 9/50
Make, Any
Model, Lantern or stove.
Type White Gas or Kerosene
Color Yes or No not picky
Condition Working or at least almost
Price Range Most anything less than my first born. Would take me at least 9 months to get that anyway. And probably a whole lot longer.

At that time Coleman USA used the letters A for the first 6 months and B for the last 6. I have two B 1950s. I have heard tales that Coleman Canada stamped some models with the numbers. Could even be a 500 stove or a lantern. So I am not picky just poor.
