Strange 228d. Export? Military? Steel burners, black hat, eyelet vent nut, black band, and missing notch on the globe rest for the generator cleaner. Maybe somebody put sears parts on an older lantern?mtnbusParticipantApril 14, 2020 at 4:26 pmPost count: 1033
Picked this up today.
it should clean up niceFranzKeymasterMay 12, 2020 at 9:55 amPost count: 3367
That’s a good one Bubba, looks clean.
I restored/custom painted the fount sand green on this 228e from 1956. Then added accessory pressure gauge and amber globe.
I found this lantern at the Durango flee market back in 2015 when I had a broken neck.BBWBParticipantMay 12, 2020 at 11:00 amPost count: 800
Looks nice Franz.

I like the look of this lantern!
It looks to me that you have a Coleman 228D that someone painted the collar (Coleman didn’t make a black band 220/228) with a Sears Red and Black/ Blue and Black vent, a JC Higgins Globe, and a Coleman Quicklite burner frame. Either way, its still a rad lantern.
