Just got into collecting Coleman stoves and lanterns about a month ago. So far I'm at 7 lanterns from 1955-1970 and 3 stoves from 1966 to the early 70s. Pretty cool hobby.

Nice collection getting started there. Even though I was close fairly regularly, I never stopped into the Coleman Museum and store in Wichita, KS. They were a good resource though on getting a couple of my old lanterns and stoves running again.

Very nice!

I missed out on a off grid cabin. And these are exactly what I was planning on using if it happened. I still want to acquire a few just for backyard camping with the kids. Going to have to keep an eye out now!

The one I am still watching for is the folding stove stand. My dad's is all green steel collapsible down to about 2x2x30. It is designed for the double burner camp stove.

This is a custom lantern I built from a bunch of 288 and 285 parts. Blasted the fount and painted it blue. The ventilator is from a 285. Picket fence globe to top it off.

Paid a pretty penny for this perfect condition 621a. Single mantle 500cp is stupid bright! Looking for a nice 321a to go along with it.

@Steve I have had to start passing up the 2 burner camp stoves. Everytime I go in a thrift store out here in NV/UT there are at least 2 of them waiting to be rehomed.

Picked up a 425 and another 413g at a yard sale for 5 bucks each. Just a little tinkering and we are in business.

I've got six dual fuel two-burners, five of the old single burners, and a few old lanterns from many decades ago...all work fine and chug right along if and when needed.
