I have a fondness for the single mantel lanterns. I just like the curves they have. Nickel, painted, it does not matter. They just have a pleasant look to them.

I too like the single mantle lanterns. I have 1 200 lantern with a nickel font that I really like. A close second are the Sears single mantles. Something about the Blue font- black vent combo that is appealing.

Mine is my 200A.
I had one back in the middle 70s that got a lot of use.
Back before the responsibilities of life set in.
Hoping to make new memories with it at Walk The Winds 2013. :D

I'm beginning to like my 1952 Military more and more.
Runs good and strong.
Been using it to burn through some older fuel that I mixed a little new fuel with to freshen it up.
Didn't have a container to store it in so I figured I would use it up.
Some day I'll get a old catalytic heaters to do burn off old fuel.
I don't like storing the lanterns with fuel in them.
I store them inside with the caps off.

All I have is a Coleman Propane lantern. I am looking into getting my first old Coleman Lantern. I think I'm crazy to get into this collecting hobby. I have a tendency to get carried away on things like this.
