Coleman Lantern - Is this Factory?

Postby Alfred » Sat Jul 09, 2016 7:25 pm

Hey Gang,

I just saw this vintage Coleman lantern on sale at EBay. Looks like a rare one! I'm assuming perhaps this isn't Factory? :shock: :lol:


Might be a good companion to a canned ham trailer? Your thoughts?

Well, is is factory, but not a Coleman factory. Most likely a green bean or baked bean factory. It looks like someone made their own heater for a lantern.
