    You seem to be short about 6 lanterns and 3 stoves. I hope you don't plan on going camping like that.

    You have quite a collection and have them restored really well, however I agree you need more shelf space. Thanks for sharing the pic

    The obvious thing here is the yard sale and Craigslist pickings in this individuals neck of the woods are too slim. Their only hope is to ether up their Ebay use or move...:laugh:

    Nice collection, congratulations!

    Don’t feel bad. I’ve got more than that. You never know when you need another back up stove or lantern. Lol!

    The problem that I see is that you have an odd number of items and that just won't do for inheritance purposes. You must continue to accumulate items to have the proper amount to leave everyone :laugh:

    The 2 single burners are M1945 military stoves and if you look at the original pic you’ll see two Milspecs hanging by the stoves. But I could use more Milspecs they are fussy and cantankerous to light but I love them.

    Dang! I didn't look far enough up to see the first picture. That's AWESOME! I wouldn't have recognized the M1945's, but I would have gotten lucky, because I'd have bought them anyway, had I seen them for sale. Way cool! :)

    I don't have a large collection, about a dozen lanterns, & at least that many stoves of various types, but the 'twins' are probably my favorites...1947 Coleman 152 lamps, will run on white gas/Coleman fuel or kerosene. Shades were a junk store acquisition.

    I’m afraid to start buying lamps..I hear they are more addicting. Those shades would go good with my other collection, duck decoys.
