Seller: mommieshobbies (786) 100%, Location: North Plains, Oregon, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 174031108534 Here is a vintage Coleman Lantern Model 242A single mantle Green with a nickel platted tank camping lantern. This lantern is bottom dated 4 1. Even though the Coleman collectors forum says these started in 1935 through 1936 and since it can not be a 1941, 1944 or 1931 it would have to be an early 242A and be January of 1934. Unless it was date stamped incorrectly or I am mistaken my money is on January of 1934. Please let me know if you think differently and I will update the listing. Either way it makes this lantern very rare being a early 242A or a "Mule" of sorts.Condition: Cosmetically this lantern is very clean and in great overall condition for being 85 years old. The vent is original to the lantern and has some chipping and scratches and has the two holes in the sides for the bail handle which is found in some of the 242 models verses the the two side slits, see photos. The globe is original with Coleman and the rising sun in green Pyrex lettering and is in excellent condition no chips or cracks were found. The burner frame is very clean hardly any corrosion or pitting was found. The fount is nice with minimal corrosion I found a few minor dings but nothing major in fact I almost missed them when inspecting it. The pump is the older version with a cross "T" lock and no stem/air tube. There is no embossed Coleman brand on the tank but that is common for earlier 242 models, see picture. Overall, this is a very nice looking vintage lantern. These lanterns getting harder and harder to find in decent cosmetic and working condition. Every part is original and unmodified unless stated otherwise. This lantern has been tested and works great clean burning, see pictures. Both valve and tip cleaner turn freely. Lantern does pump and hold pressure. Nice lantern for use or collection. A new fuel cap gasket has been installed. The burner frame was changed out for testing so the one you will received is pictures and will have minimal discoloration or soot. Pictures are taken before testing so any soot or discoloring from the test firing maybe present.If you have any questions please ask. Please see my other offers for similar items.
