Coleman 200A

I got a very nice 200A off eBay. It has a ding on the ventilator but everything else is in super great shape. Added a new gasket to the fuel cap, soaked the leather cup in oil and BOOM. She's working.

It puts out a ton of light and has a completely different character from the 228F I got awhile back. The light is closer to white than yellow and it has better color rendition.

It is very nice, I think it's my new favorite.

Wow Bruce, that's a sweetheart of a lantern. Did you use a Peerless mantle?

Yup, seem to work just fine and are cheaper than the Coleman.
