You should spend some time to look through all the old posts and stuff. Lots of valuable info. Plus, he sells rare and hard to find parts, things you won't find anywhere else. With this guy's help, I've rebuilt an old lantern and heater, that I bought off of Ebay for a fraction of what they're worth.

I just spent the last hour looking around that site and it is very cool to see some of those old lanterns.I have a 220F model I bought at a garage sale a year ago for 10 bucks and if im reading the date right I think it is 7/66.Does anyone else have any older models?

My dad's got a red 200A. Bought it new in 1962. One of my fondest memories of childhood is watching him fool around with that old lantern while camping at Hayes Lake state park. I remember thinking that was the neatest thing in the world.

I've got my grandpas coleman dual mantle, chrome/nickel plated tank, not sure what model right off the top of my head but I knew it hung in the kitchen and in the barn before there was rural electricity. It's not in perfect condition but it works just as nice as my dual fuel powerhouse! My best guess datewise is the early 1940's... Paul

Ive got a chrome nickle tank coleman too. Im not sure how old it is. When I was atound 6 years old I watched my dad trying to light it in the house and it flooded. The were flames 3 ft in the air. Dad threw it out the door. Later I saw it in the garbage pile. I took it out and hid it. When I started to plan my own fishing and camping trips in my mid teens I pulled out that old Lantern. Somehow I figured out it needed a new generater. Im 44 now, that old lantern and I have been on a lot of trips together. Was my primary light source when I lived in a wall tent in Alaska for 3 summers too. Its the only original peice of equipment I have since starting my outdoor escapades.

On most models, Coleman stamps the manufacturing date on the bottom of the fount (tank). Digits on the left mean month, digits on the right mean year. They did this even way back then.

that is a great site . thanks for the post , I have a few lanterns that are in need of repair and when I was younger we would just buy a new one. Now that I'm older and more thrifty I'll have to try to fix them again. I've tried a time or two but with not much success ,this will be allot of help.Metro

Something about a Coleman gas lantern. It can go and go and go. Finally broke down and bought a propane stove at an auction, but will probably never get a propane lantern. I have 2 different gas lanterns and one or both ALWAYS go with me ice fishing or camping.

      We fished Thursday - Saturday. Couldn’t get any marks to bite on the west end so started east. Caught lots of 9-15” eyes on the mud side of the transition. Mostly crawlers for us on Thurs-Fri but bite changed to minnows on Saturday. Our rainbows ran small but had a few big chubs mixed in. Big chubs we’re best. No eyes on small suckers.  A jig and sucker or crawler on 9-14’ rocks got smallies going in several places. Rocky points coming off islands also produced smallies with tubes, deep jerkbaits and ned rigs on east end. Also landed a 45” ski on a crawler harness.

      Hello. Another important factor to consider when looking for an writing service is the amount of work they can do. A company like https://payforwriting.com/pay-for-papers/  offers a wide variety of topics and has over sixteen writers who are experts in the subject matter. The service also offers proofreading and editing services. Prices start at , but they can get expensive quickly if deadlines are tight.

      Hello. The first step is to read reviews written by customers. This way, you can determine if a service delivers on time and does not charge hidden fees. The paperwriter reviews should also state whether or not the company guarantees original work. Some of the most reliable review platforms include Trustpilot and SiteJabber. Moreover, many  writing services publish their customer reviews on their websites, some even in video format.

      Hello. Remember, cheap writing services will not pass a plagiarism scan and lack quality.  When looking for an college papers writers , you can look for online reviews that compare several companies. Those reviews should include both positive and negative feedback from customers. The service you choose should also provide timely delivery and no hidden fees. Additionally, it should guarantee that every paper is original. This way, you can be sure that you are getting a high-quality written by a competent writer.

      Sounds like a fun day Moose. The weather was just about perfect for the days event.

      I also don’t really believe that you can earn online casinos. There you can play, put bets, win and more often lose money. In the casino for Norway, the same rules apply as for the rest of the casino. If you are lucky, you will win. But to earn money, it is unlikely.
