4/48 249

Just to show that I still occasionally add to the herd... A 249 scout I picked up here a couple weeks ago at a reasonable price. A bit wonky but it'll straighten up I'm sure. Glad I bought some spare globes a few years back as it makes buying them without much easier! https://i.postimg.cc/66ZbZbYM/I...

I have a 8/55 242B in a similar state as that (about 4/5 down this page you'll see it https://terry-marsh.com/coleman-us-lanterns-1946-1960/ ). Another collector found one other like that over here too, 8/55 as well i think.
