Coleman graveyard produces GOLD

#1

Post by Mudmasher »

Currently back on a Coleman Binge, went to my boneyard and pulled out the Black collar, all I need is a good vent. It’s date is 2-53. How would go about restoration of the collar. Steel wool and elbow grease or glass beading most likely use walnut media.

Need help on this one , thought it was a 202 font But on the bottom it’s stamped 6-65 and also stamped on the bottom 200a. What is this plated diamond in the rough ?

If you're having trouble loading photos get a photo compressing app to reduce the file size. I use litphoto and reduce them to just under 50% and they usually work. If they don't I reduce them some more.

You DO know that the collar is black on purpose? Why would you want to risk damage by using steel wool and elbow grease? Blasting with walneto's? How about just some general cleaner and follow up with FLITZ?

How about a '65 200a ...... without pics, that's the only thing it could be based on your clues.

Yes, must learn the photo application tips I’ll get my tech savvy kids to teach the old man

My friend, I have restored several things in my 58 yr of life. The 2-53 200a black collar, will be as nice as my in the box,early 70’s unopened 200a. As I said , the BC was found in my boneyard,there is considerable crud and corruption. On my restorations I extensively prep my surfaces and coat accordingly
I’ve been collecting Coleman product for 30 yrs. I Know why the collar is black

Get ready for pics

My main obsession is antique John Deere tractors.
I have 4 Rice tractors (I’m located 100 miles south of Houston) 830 rice special,4020,5020 and the ultimate 2 wheel drive rice tractor,aka”The Beast” 1977 ,6030. My son have done tractors for FFA AgMech projects. Complete, down to last bolt restorations. Museum quality. The lanterns are a quick,instant gratification, emotional booster.

I donate a restored lantern each year to our local Boy Scouts’ fundraiser auction. Proud to say, both sons are Eagle Scouts, they loved me at camp out and Jamborees.Sunshine of the night , I brightened the night and feed the masses with my 426’s

My wife's from Crowley LA ..... Rice Capital of the World ..... or so they say.

We see plenty of those tractors whenever you go back to visit .... and crawfish farms in the off-season, of course.

Now we're talking! We're traveling down to Bayou Vista TX (just N. of Galveston) the first week of May to see my wife's Brother (and eat Crawfish) .... then on to Crowley to visit Cousins and Uncle (and eat Crawfish). Buying Seafood in Maurice LA before returning to the mountains (if the car can handle the added load).

Laissez les bons temps rouler, y'all!
