    Hey Angry, I like em! I have a couple 335’s. They are a simple inexpensive lantern that work very well. I have some Canadian friends that told me they would give them away at Canadian Tire back in the day if you got tires or bought other stuff. Pretty cool.

    Awesome find!
    I got a few Amber globes. Great when it’s bug season! Some of my 200a has amber globes on them and a 228e. I’m looking for a 222 Amber globe.

    I heard that somewhere too. If it’s true i bet many people just ended up giving the lantern away. I love 335’s one of my favorites. I think I got like 7 or 8 now. They multiply fast!

    Thanks. It might be going to a new home soon unless he wants a different one instead. I’m keeping only a select few lanterns. Mostly single mantle ones. The rest I been trying to get rid of by I keep grabbing more. Seems I gather more then I letgo of.

    It’s burning 100% kerosene right now. In the reduced exposure picture you can see the preheat cup.
    This is one of my go to lanterns. Never gives me problems and te tank has nickel under the red. I should strip it and polish it but I’m lazy. I got a few with brass founts that could be polished up but I leave them as is. Red! Gotta love the red heads !
    Let’s keep the pictures coming! I’ll post more tonight when I pull some different ones out to clean up.

    Here’s my find for today. Not a lantern but it’s a Coleman. Matches one of my Coleman peak 1 222 Lanterns. This is the 5th peak stove like this I found in my area. I got a exponent version too!
    I love finding this locally. My wife says I look like a little kid opening a present when I find something. Although she finds most of my lanterns. I’d say 85-80 % of them she found.

    Here’s a 202 professional. It’s basically a stainless version of a 200a.
    26908E4B-E97F-4B6A-B5BF-A4155E3EC974.jpeg
    Here’s a Sears Ted Williams (stainless steel version of a 228E)
    BD5A5459-7164-4BD8-B63A-F1FE4F5C8C09.jpeg
    Here’s a couple in line to be cleaned up. They been sitting for waaaaay to long! I had a lot ofthem at one point. Ended up trading some and selling some and replacing them with 237’s.
    7495A1FF-88A8-491A-9064-AAC9FB242CE9.jpeg The 202 is a good one for sure. Burns great and no worries about rust. I recently sold 2 of them. One I sold with an amber globe.
    Yes the 202 is basically a stainless version of the 200a. I have a sears Ted Williams that’s a 2 mantle stainless steel version of the Coleman 228E. The ted has a red top that makes it really nice. I have one that I still haven’t cleaned up yet. Saving it for a boring day. I got a few 202 that’s been waiting to be clean also.

    I only have a cheapo chinese tealight lantern, the thing is I can burn citronella tealights in it as I am a mosquito magnet.
    It's not foldable or ultralight, but not super heavy either and I like the simplicity of it.
    And it can fit 4 8hr burn tealights inside.

    I like it. Versatile and who cares where its grimier how much it cost. If it works for you that’s all that matters.
    Thanks for posting a picture

    Here’s another one. It’s a 228D conversion.
    E07C2E5B-7278-4C85-A1C0-89633FF20AD2.jpeg
    Here’s it is preheating. It burns Kerosene. I use Coleman fuel in it once in awhile. It pretty much burns whatever you pour into it. Nice steady white light.

    This lantern has its original globe and parts. The globe is cool because it’s a double print green sunshine logo.

    Let’s keep this thread alive!

    From my rainy overnighter this past weekend. The soft glow of the candle lanterns complimented the firelight perfectly.

    Pretty awesome. I didn’t realize that. Had you not brought it up I’d never realize it. Lets keep it alive!

    It’s an old Sears lantern. JC Higgins. Single mantle and pretty bright! These lanterns can get pretty loud depending on how much pressure in the tank. Kamplite, Ash Flash and Unimed are others thats similar to this one. Basically same maker but branded different and later had different features like generators and pumps ect.
    This type needs a bigger mantle than the normal Coleman #21 size mantle to run well.
    In it I have a Peerless #111. This particular one works better with that size vs a Peerless 24-a or Coleman #99 but I have use the standard #21 size in the past. Especially when I’m working on one I’ll use a cheap 21 mantle. The generator and parts for these lanterns are obsolete.
    The tank/fount has a worn decal but my other one has an intact decal that says “ J.C. Higgins, Burns Leaded or Unleaded Gasoline”. I am using Criwn camp fuel in it. I rarely use gasoline anymore.

    Here’s a different lantern. It’s a Kooklite and has a stove top. I put a small pot on it to see if it will boil water and it did! Took awhile like 20 minutes but still. For a lantern I like it! It’s right and I put a picture of the Kooklite next to a similar made lantern. The JC Higgins. Parts can be swapped with each other. Basically same lantern just one has a stove top. I like Kampite lanterns. They are bright single mantle and I wish the still made them. Very stable lanterns. The fount is wide and it make a short low center of gravity lantern.
    This Kooklite is all original. Even the globe.
    I had several of these and wish I kept them all. Now I just put it into rotation. This one actually ugh be moving to a new home if y trade goes as planned. If not it will be up for sale.
    Enjoy!!

    Here is a 222A on the left, 288 custom in the middle and 222 on the right.

    What we have here is a 222A on the left and a 222 on the right. I love these mini lanterns! Bright and burns Coleman or camp fuel. These were cheap back in the day but now it seems people ask ridiculous prices for them. I’m glad to own several of these.
    I take one on most of my camping trips.
    Enjoy!

    Picked this up at a garage sale for $8 last year. Have since put a couple gallons of fuel through it. My son and I love having it up when we have camp fires.

    Now that’s a nice 220k! For $8 you can’t beat that.looks to be barely used when you bought it. Those will run forever! Thanks for posting a picture!

    Here’s what’s burning tonight.
    It’s a Lancaster Lanterns Nitehawk #701. Single mantle and Super bright. It’s burning kerosene but can burn Coleman fuel and I’m sure diesel or Regular unleaded gasoline if you had to. I love this thing. It’s all stainless steel and brass burner assembly really makes it nice. It’s a big lantern. Heavy duty and very robust. It’s made as a working lantern so it’s not all perfectly polished up but to me is very attractive.

    Here is another one running great. It’s a Coleman 236 Canadian. It’s the white gas sister to the Coleman 237 kerosene. I should have taken a before shot but didn’t think about it. This one was found here in Spokane awhile ago by my wife at a rummage sale. It was covered in layers of dust. So much I didn’t think the fount and frame would turn out so shiny. After a couple hours of elbow grease it turned out pretty nice. A quick flush of the fount , new filler cap gasket and a generator rebuild and it lit right up! No issues. I love these big 500cp single mantle lanterns. There’s just something about it that draws me to it. Maybe it’s the different sound they make or that bigger mantle. I don’t know I just love um!
    I got several of these so you might see this one up for grabs??
