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: 1165
Picked this up today.
it should clean up niceFranzKeymasterMay 12, 2020 at 9:55 amPost count: 3649
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: 840
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.FranzKeymasterSeptember 8, 2020 at 12:17 pmPost count: 3649
Newest member of the family. Feb 1927, first of the green porcelain ventilator. Original mica globe and wing filler cap. 🤤John JonesKeymasterSeptember 8, 2020 at 1:21 pmPost count: 6731

If anybody is going through Dolores, you should scoop up this lantern for $50. They only did the black band for a couple years. This one is a 1953

That black band looks clean and complete minus the wrong globe.

Coleman? What do I have here? Found it in my house, had forgot all about it. Came from my uncle the Model T guy. No name id or date on the bottom that I can see, mica globe, looks old as fuck.
