I’ve never heard of nickel plated tubes on a Lantern. Is there a particular lamp that would’ve use these, or did somebody just nickel plate them for fun?
Thanks

Quick-Lites, both lamps and lanterns, would have had nickel tubes like this. Possibly also 220/228Bs, but those tended to have a restriction built into the tops. You don't really notice the nickel on them because they've all been discolored from decades of heat.

Those are shinier than any NOS ones I have found though a did buy a few of those from OCP a couple years back.
They seem to discolor differently than other NOS ones, they kind of "rainbow" discolor
Thank you!

I have a couple of those but can't remember the length. They came as extra parts with my 427.

Just looking at the picture I notice a couple were threaded and then plated, while others were plated and then threaded.

Don't know what that means.

The shiny ones are 2 7/8 inches long and the dull ones are about a 16th of an inch longer than that

Some of them are really shiny and have plated threads and the other ones are slightly longer, have a dull finish and unplated threads.

I have the exact same jar with the exact same tubes. I have had them for 25 years and haven't used one yet.

That’s probably what I will do with these.

When I clean up a nice CQ I always throw on NP burner tubes
Heck most of the originals are still nickel under all that carbon
Thank you!

The ones with the brass threads are genuine Coleman. The nickel is more of an industrial finish too.
