Hello and thank you for taking your time to view our listing. Offering for sale is the exact shown original, very rare, and truly vintage, highly collectible authentic Coleman brand lantern Model 228F in the extremely rare to find "Harvest Gold or Yellow" color. This is one of the three different models of lanterns you could get through the "Gold Bond" trading stamps company in the early 1970's. As shown in the photographs the lantern has the original Coleman date stamp on the bottom of 6/72, meaning the lantern was produced in Wichita Kansas in June of 1972. As you can see in all the attached photographs, this lantern is in excellent well preserved and collectible condition.
Lantern does still work, as we actually emptied the full tank of kerosene out of it while cleaning. So it does not leak at all, and it does work exactly as it should. Lantern does have the original Pyrex brand glass globe that it came of out the factory with as shown in the photo's. Knob turns with ease as it should. We did completely take the lantern apart and used canned air to clean out the dust etc.
Lantern does have a few surface rust places on it, these places can easily be touched up by the experienced restorer if choosing to do so. Owner took care of the lantern, and it has remained in the shown great condition over the past nearly 50 years.This is one of the rarest color Coleman brand lanterns to find. It is even more rare to find one with all original parts and still in this nice collectible and actual working condition. Few like this one only come along ever so often and are made available for sale.
