These 50+ year old vintage Coleman white-gas powered camping lanterns are becoming rare finds'in the wild' but are so great to light up and enjoy! This one was made in June of 1963, just after the end of the Burgundy / burg colored run of lanterns that were made in 1962. The fount has been repainted but the bottom of the fount was left with the original paint and as you can see it is a good match.A period correct reproduction decal as been applied. I took it apart and thoroughly cleaned and maintenanced it, cleaning the check valve and cleaning/polishing the brass. I removed some rust on the burner area though there is some darkness and pitting remaining.
I haven't lit it since cleaning it as I didn't want to dirty it again, but it pumps up and hisses as it should. My listings are used vintage lanterns with signs of wear and use including some chipping on the vent, pitting or evidence of rust and some show paint loss - please see the photos for condition.
