I have slowed way down. I even sold a bunch of my 200A's to a friend. Now I only buy unusual stoves and lanterns that I do not have. I really need to start thinning out all my collections. I want to get out of Illinois in the next couple of years so I need to sell a bunch, or moving will be a full time job. :lol:

I am still looking. I picked up a lantern in the original box this summer. Had been in a locked garage since the 60's. Box was not in really great shape, but it was intact. Haven't even tried firing it up yet. Still looking for some really early stoves. Would love a mil-spec stove to go with my mil-spec lantern, if I ever get it restored.

I also have slowed down on the Coleman collecting. But I do have a 1940, nickle 500 stove on its way.

I went kind of car crazy this year. LOL

Still there, I dedicate time to restore one at a time, I keep the ones I like, I sell the rest....keeps the garage uncluttered.
