    About a year and a half ago, I bought a Coleman 220H for $10 off Craigslist and with the help of some members here got it running great. https://www.popupportal.com/threads/10-coleman-dual-mantle-lantern.116309/

    At the time I was warned that once you have one Coleman GPA they tend to start multiplying. I've done my best to resist collecting these things but it's been a struggle. As a result, I now have five -- the 220H mentioned above, a pair of 220Es, a 228E and this 200A that showed up in yesterday's mail.

    As you can see in the photos this lantern -- dated 7/68 -- is clean as a whistle, which I find remarkable considering it's 51 years old. Two of the others are in really nice shape but not as clean as this. I don't have any fuel at home so I haven't tried to light it yet, but everything turns so I'm hoping the worst case scenario will be replacing the generator. We're going to Table Rock Lake in southern Missouri next week and I'll see if I can get it going then.

    Very nice! I’m quite jealous. It looks pristine!

    Still have my old propane Coleman lantern, I need to get it out and working again. Relying too much on battery technology! Kind of miss the old hiss of a propane lantern. [LOL]
