I am guilty. Still looking for the 1/72 birthday lantern.Nothing to add except a warning: Once you get a taste for old coleman products, they can be highly addictive. It starts easy, just a lantern or two, maybe a stove. "I can use this for camping" you tell your spouse as she rolls her eyes.
You tell yourself "I can stop anytime" but the thought of finding a Ted Williams or a Gold Bond for $5 at a yard sale is too powerful. Pretty soon your scouring eBay for your "birthday lantern", then your spouse's, then your kids....
Run Away! While you still can! :sombrero:
OH and whatever you do don't join the Antique Coleman Collectors' FB group or all you'll hear about is "Frankies" (i.e. "Frankenstein" lanterns put together from parts of other lanterns), "Turds" (275's) and how much you should pay for a lantern (the answer is: $8.00)
You've been warned. :ylsmoke:
