This little beauty is all original and is as close to perfect as you'll ever find. It looks like my grandfather used it once and put it back in the box which I'm pretty sure he did?
It's just too nice to have been used more than once! The vent cap doesn't have a single mark or chip on it and is in perfect condition with the correct small bail holes.
The original glass is in amazing condition as well and has the Colman Sunshine of the Night logo on one side and Pyrex made in the USA on the other. The burner frame is also in really nice condition with only some minor oxidation spotting here and there.
I did clean up some of the tarnished brass with a light polish. The leather has been freshly oiled and the lantern pumps up and holds pressure with no air loss whatsoever. Everything on this lantern looks amazing and works exactly as it should.
This is the nicest example all original model 200 Coleman lantern I've ever seen. Its ready to be used or displayed.
