Good find. That is a nice old lantern in great shape and will last you a life time. It's a much better lantern then their new models and you paid way less. Well done.

Good deal. Burn it with a smug grin on your face. :thumbsup:

I haven't even cleaned it, it was that clean when I bought it. I would imagine it had been kept in it's original box to be that clean and scratch-free, but there was no box at the estate sale.

I always say, It is not a lantern until it burns.

220F is a pretty good lantern. I have a few around here and you paid an good price for your. I usually get them around here in that range. Though I have never gotten an un-burned one. Have gotten a few that has only been burned a time or two.
