The ICCC Coleman Book

#1

Post by remy3424 »

Is this a valuable resource? Do most or any of you have it? Is it helpful to ID lanterns? It sounds like a great resource. Any opinions on it? I am not starting a book review club here. The easiest way to ID lanterns is to post a pic and "what is it?" Or no pic, as a thread I just saw!

Thanks

Very helpful to narrow down a date, but not totally complete, some gpa's shown may not show all features, but still a good resource.

I may not use mine on a daily basis, but I sure use it several times a week.

I put off getting mine for a while when I started collecting. Finally bought one. Way easier to look up lanterns in the book than online. The online stuff is good but doesn't go to the same level of detail as the book. Very well done and extremely valuable resource to any Coleman collector

I like the book. It helped me identify a 200 I brought back from Ontario. Birthdate 7-53, but not a normal run of the mill 200. This one has a nickel fount and screws in the pump, which makes it what was called a "200 Scout" if memory serves me. It also helped me date a 237 kero. There was no date stamp, but going by the logo and the design we came up with I think 1945? I need to start writing this stuff down I guess LOL.

Excellent resource. I'd say it's a must-have for any collector. Then you'll want to get Darcy's shade book as a companion piece. When those aren't enough you refer to the PLC, or post a "What is this?"

Definitely get it. I rarely use mine unless I'm showing someone some photos of something Coleman offered that I don't have. It does have several mistakes which is to be expected in any hobby when we're constantly leaning new things and new information shows up. If they made a book that was as detailed as I would like, it would need wheels to roll it around 😁

Thanks all! Sounds like it is a "must have" and doubtful anyone is ready to let theirs's go! It looks like they are available on the ICCC website.

I highly recommend getting the book. Got mine a couple of years ago from the ICCC website too. It's nice to have a ton of Coleman information at your finger tips. Hoping that a follow up book will come along that will cover Coleman from 1984 to present. It would be nice to have the same type of book for the Dual Fuels, Peak 1 etc. as what's in the 1900 to 1983 book.

Coleman book and CV tool are the #1 and #2 recommended purchases I'd make to a first of second year collector.

I do the order processing. If you just ordered it, I will not get to it until the end of next week. I am on the way to the SW gathering campout. Then a few days at the Grand Canyon. Sorry to keep you waiting.

I tried to find the CV removal tool at OCP and it doesn't seem to be listed anywhere. I emailed them and their tech guy (dept) is out this week. Guessing they are just out of stock, but I thought it was odd it just didn't show as "out of stock".

Guess I will start making trips to the PO in a few weeks looking for the BOOK. Glad to hear they are in-stock at least.

They had I think 24 of them in stock a couple days ago, I know because I ordered one myself to keep from having to borrow one all the time.

Lots of folks waiting for these to get re-stocked. Gotta git 'em while they're HOT!

I got to thinking, it was LAST week when I ordered mine, I received it Saturday I think. So they very well may be out of stock again!

Remy, talk to Rob at OCP and request an email when he restocks. That worked for me.

I keep an eye open for the ICCC book and the Green Book online. They pop up occasionally, but the prices have gone up considerably. Might try local libraries too.

You do realize that the folks on this forum don’t refer to them as page numbers.

They are scriptures explaining the spoken word of Mr. Coleman himself…

BTW…I got mine about a week ago and the thing fell apart on me as the pages separated from the seams. They replaced it with another and I plan on giving that unsealed version to my father for Christmas. I keep losing pages from all the times I’ve referenced the spoken word and forgot where they fell onto the ground while I was walking and reading.

Got my big book delivered a couple days ago. Quite a reference for IDing these lanterns!....and other Coleman appliances.

I will treat it with kid gloves!
