COLEMAN 200 A RED GAS LANTERN LOW VENT AUGUST 1966 DATE CODE 8 66

Offered for sale is a very nice and clean Coleman single mantle lantern low vent model 200A with a manufacture date stamp of 8/66 (August, 1966), although the stamping is not very deep and is hard to read in the photo.

This lantern is in very nice condition and has been disassembled, cleaned and tested. The fuel/air tube, burner, generator, and check valve have been removed and cleaned. The pump leather was oiled, cap gasket replaced, and the brass parts have been hand polished. The lantern was test fired after reassembly.

The vent shows just one chip near the bail hole. The blue dot on top had some bleed of the red color during manufacture and the dot is not a full circle. This was how it came from the factory. These are shown in the photos.

The burner frame is shiny and has had the rust removed, although there are some areas of pitting.

There are some areas of paint loss on the fount and the bottom rim as shown.

The globe has the correct red letter arched PYREX logo and there are no chips or burn marks.

Please refer to all the photos for further description.

Overall, this is an outstanding example of a mid-60's low vent 200A and would make an excellent addition to any Coleman lantern collection.
