Not bad Toby!! For my lack of knowledge, is that what would be called a tall hat Burg?

Nice! The nickel on the CQ fount looks great and I’m excited to see how the burg cleans up.

I don't know how you find what you do. I scour all through our area just to find 220fs lol...Nothing wrong with those of course, but still!

Where are the commons? Wrong photo?

I see a nice condition CQ fount, a Burg and two nice 200As. Not that common around here--but then, nothing is this year.

200s are like hens teeth around here. Other than one I traded a friend. I haven’t seen one in the wild. I went out today and found a 220j for $70 checked for possible birthday and left it sitting. So in short I am jealous 😁

The burg ain't bad. One to check off the list. I found a black band like that. Full of fuel, mantle tied on and intact. Fired right up.

Trading stock if nothing else.

The CQ needs a BIG slightly canted burner. ;)

Finding 3 lanterns of any kind let alone 200A's with intact globe's is enough to make me smile. I need a Burg, Dang it!
Wayne signing off...

What's the lowest you'll take for this lantern?

Nice scores. The 1-62 is definitely a burg. Like Timm said, the nickel on the CQ fount looks lime it'll clean up nice, and the other two 200a's look to be in great shape as well.

Thanks for the confirmation Rob. Yes the only reason I bought the CQ was because of the nice nickel...I certainly didn't need another one... But for less than $3 it was hard to leave it there... I've got everything needed to make it complete laying around also. Then the short vents are hard to leave behind when the globes are bringing the kind of money they are now... Plus they're red 😉
