Do you have a 202 lantern? I am helping to gather info on 202's with a person who shall remain anonymous. (Mr T.M) Looking for the dates of your lanterns, for a data base. Especially interested in the duel date lanterns (side and bottom) From ? till 1958. But I would like to hear of all month and years to help with an overall idea of manufacture. You can post here or PM me. Thanks Tim

I have two 202 models. One is double dated. It says 4-58 on the side of the fount and 58-1 on the bottom. Just in case you wondering, bottom stamping is in this order - 58-1. Year first, month second.
Second 202 I have is dated 8-57 on the side of the fount, and B stamp on the bottom.

8/57 on the fount, not on the bottom. I have several, they are all this way. Brent

Do you have an 8/57 lurking in your collection? ICCC Member #731 Ex-Official ICCC person.

One of my 202's is dated on the bottom with what I can only see as the year 54 no month. It has a steel bottom with like a galvanized wash to it. It is possible that the month may have been lightly stamped and covered by the wash but purely speculative. Ceramic burner cap

My other 202 is dated on the side under the stamped logo 5 59 and this one the bottom of the fount is plated brass I believe (non-magnetic). This one also has a "B" stamped on the bottom which I have been told means "BRASS"

Glenn. The date is under there. If your are curious you can scrape with a flat X-acto blade and see it. I wanted to find the month on mine and did just that. You can see the faint 54 to the left of the month.

Tim, I am not going to be as curious as you were. Upon really closer inspection, after seeing your pic, I looked at mine again and I think I see a 1. I doubt that it is a lone 1 and probably a 10/11 or 12 but again, without scraping the fount I think I can see a distinct 1 opposite 54 on mine

I have a 1955 coleman catalog with the 202 in it. According to the catalog, the steel bottoms on that year of 202 were hot tin dipped. That is what obscures the date which is on the bottom.

1-58, bottom marked only, 10-62, side marked only, and ?54 or 55? steel bottom as described above, marked on bottom only and barely readable.
