Well I thought I would show some pictures for my lanterns. I've also picked up the Coleman desklamp from my grandfathter. I am going to seek some help in identifying it.

These are of my Coleman 335 from the early 70's. I got it from my grandpa and he had only used it once. It is in almost perfect shape and I still have the box for it. The only things wrong with it are the glass is marked becuase he ran it with a hole in the mantle and there is some paint missing around the bottom edge that it sits on. It is what got me started on this.

This is the Coleman 200 that I got from my friends dad. It is dated 4/53 so it is 52 years old. It is in rough shape even after I have cleaned it up. I forgot to clean the dial on the valve wheel and the band in the middle but I can always do that later. The ventilator is pretty badly chipped but what do you expect for a lantern that was used every day for more than 20 years.

This is the unkown Coleman desk lamp. I think it is a model 118 from the late 20's early 30's. That will be my next project as soon as I can figure out what it is.

In the back ground you can see my 518B catalytic heater that I got for $5 and my 421C stove is not shown. Thats my whole colection so far.
