I scored this guy today at a library thrift store for $5. Model 513 with a date code of 12/69. It hardly looks used.

No, I suspected there was another peice from reading the instructions. It shows very little evidence of use. I'm guessing somebody cleaned out grandpa's garage.

From above. The only noticeable sign of use.

There a lid that goes over the burner you drop this little kettle Lisbon top the burner andesve it on tight to snuff the flames out..other wise tbey will burn till ether the gas runs out or they are safe enough to pour it out of the tank while the heaters burning I wint ever try that but i normally use my sniffer that came with my dad's mint heater. Slow.

Wouldn’t happen to be 12/70 would it? Still looking for a birthday lantern.

* I'll never find a 9/50 birthday lantern, nor a 9/61, to commemorate the lantern my grandmother bought for my Boy Scout adventures. Instead, I bought a brand new Northstar dual-fuel lantern in 2012. I've never fueled it up, nor used it, but it comes with me on all my trips anyway, just in case someone else lights one up (I've seen none used in my S.Central Group outings, yet).
* LED lanterns, rope lights, & flashlights have filled in for the lantern; I've plenty of batteries, inverter, and generator if needed, in lieu of firing up the white gas ( or unleaded) lantern, although nothing can replace the sound and smell of a Coleman in use. So, I guess the Coleman fever passed me by.

How do you tell the dates? I bought one yesterday at a church garage sale. It was 3.00 and there is a stamp on the bottom that reads 63.

that's probably the year. If you look on the other side of the bottom you'll see the month number. The logo often separates them.
