Thumbs up Coleman treasures

I picked these up a couple of weeks ago.

Red Coleman 200A 4/74 and Nickel plated 228D '48

I will get them cleaned up and fired up in the next week or so.

Both of these will go on the shelf after that. I've got plenty of user lanterns right now.

I've seen a few people post these, are they worth anything?

A few years ago I donated 3 of them that were given to me back in the late 70's. Should I have kept them?

It all depends on the condition and collector/buyer who is looking for that particular model. My brother paid $80 for the 200A that's near mint condition. I paid $25 for this one and it's good condition. The seriously collectors who have been in the game a long time have lots of 200A sitting on the shelf collection dust.

I've never paid more that $25 for a lantern. I have paid no more than $60 for stove. I have a mint condition never used 3 burner with all the paperwork and cardboard. It could fletch $100 plus with the right buyer. Some go for over $200. Now I am not ever going to sell mine though.

Start hitting the flea markets and garage sales. I avoid pawn shops, but there are hidden treasures every where. I look out of state all the time.

Come on Timmy! Quit hoarding it all! Leave some for everyone else.

Pull that 3 burner out and boil over some coffee and spill some bacon grease in it. Get it broke in man!

I am a collector of lanterns, stoves, and heaters made by Coleman. Looking for the right ice chest and water jug. If I find something else made by Coleman that I can afford/want I will get it.

Took a little while to get fired up but she is hissing. Not bad for a single mantle lantern.

Yes. You would be amazed at the Coleman gear gathering dust in peoples shops and garages. Now I started off just wanting gear for camping. I found some really great deals after that.

This stuff is 30 plus years old and still working. Still lighting up the night and cooking our foods trip after trip. I think that's why I got hooked.

Scored one of the military versions today (1985 1594L) It's in very good condition, has the extra mantles, wrench, spare generators and the box. I could probably flip it for well over 5x what I paid for it. It's a cool lantern.

I paid $10 at a garage sale today. I'm very happy with this find.

I never knew there was such a collector bug for these. I had a lady next to our camp site last year give me a total of 7 lanterns and a coleman heater. said she was cleaning out her old garage and found them. figured she would find a wanter for them. one of them is the military style with all the goodies like yours.

I believe I have a stove in the shed that may have been used once or twice. I forgot all about it till I saw this post. Bought it then got a propane stove and never used the coleman again. Will have to see if its still there, wifes having a garage sale in a week or two.

There are lots of Coleman gear scattered all over the states just waiting to be found, restored and used. I only have three items that will never get used. Everything else I get is for using. My kids get a stove and one lantern from me.

Casey found a nice one for sure.

502 with accessory tray
Burner needs some cleaning and it looks like the valve handle got a little hot.
That tray will be moved to one of my lanterns. Scratch this one off my list. Just need to get a heat drum for it.

I'm another Coleman addict. Dad got me started. Honestly can't tell you how many lanterns and stoves I've accumulated.

Got gems posted here already.

It's fun to collect, fix up, and use.

That aluminum case stove is a cool one. Coleman only made them for one year. If you ever want to sell it I will take it.

That is a model 442 made in 1963. There should be date stamp on it. Coleman also made a 443 three burner aluminum case stove. Both models were only made for one year.

It probably won't take much to get it burning. If the take is rusted inside fill it with Vinegar and let it set a couple of days. Rinse it out with gasoline. Your pump leather is probably dried up. Pull the pump plunger and soak in motor oil it will swell up and be good as new. Fill the tank about 3/4 full of Coleman fuel, pump it up and see if it will light. Heck....its only 52 years old. Its got a lot of life left in it.

Once you get them restored post up. I have to clean up these two stoves so I am sure I will be getting a couple of generators and gaskets. Metal Rescue as well is a must for this kind of work.
