I promised Stephen that I would post some pics of a Coleman Lantern that I was given a few weeks ago, when he posted some pics of a cool Coleman Stove restoration project that he is undertaking.
This is the lantern as it was given to us. We were told it was probably from the 60's, and maybe used twice.
This is honestly the first time I opened the case. At this point, I am believing the story that it was only used twice.
Nope, not from the 60's. Built October 1972. Still older than I am.
...and in much better shape than I am
Made in the USA. Darn shame this Iconic brand is all China now.
I hope you all enjoy the pics! I need to get some Coleman Fuel and fire this sucker up on what looks to be a still intact 40 year old mantle!
