My 202 is dated 8-57 on the side of the fount, and B stamp on the bottom. I'd be interested in a summary of the data if available.

Found one on e-bay--the seller claims the fount is stainless steel--current bid is $42---I didn't think Coleman ever made founts of stainless--
When were the brass founts with nickel plating discontinued?

Bottoms must have been made and dated in January. Throughout the year they put the pieces together. I too have a 1-58 bottom, but side is 12/58. I call it a 12 58.

This 3 year old thread is back.

It's a good thread. I like looking at the 202s. Couple of them look really fine.

I could only imagine seeing one in the store and bringing it home new. I never saw one in a store. In fact I never saw a nickel plated lantern until I came here (and ebay came about).

I still don't see many. In southern California we had 200A's, 220's and 228's. Green and red. Once in a while I would see a 242C at a swap meet. not often.

And quite a few I have only seen one of- It's mine.
