Weekend finds

#1

Post by TSPORT »

Picked up these at a silent auction yesterday. 3 separate lots.
Bought all 3 cheap as nothing really special
Bought the 220F (12/71) just to get the case
413G (7/75) had a bonus twin pack of Silk-Lites inside
Ash Flash 1022 - I have no real affection for an AFC lantern but it was new/unfired in the box with papers and funnel. Couldn't resist it for under $20.
I believe the funnel is original. It's awfully cheap compared to a Coleman funnel. Check out the little piece of brass mesh glued in for a "filter"!

I don't think I've ever seen one that complete. For 20, I would have got it. Don't ask me why, but I would have...

And what happened to that 220? Lol. Someone put kero in it or something?

The 413 looks to be in great shape hardly used at all and well taken care of. The 220 has a nice appearance but what's up with the smoke colored globe? AFC NOS is cool, I wouldn't have passed on that either.
Nice score Steve.

Don’t ask me why either. If it wasn’t brand new in the box I wouldn’t have given it a second glance. Yeah, the 220 is pretty sooty but it should clean up nice. Got a few flaws in the vent but overall not bad. I haven’t opened the fount yet to smell. I’ll save the 220 and 413 as projects for next winter. Didn’t need either but the price was right.

........and smoke colored frame rest and all under the vent! It’ll clean up nice I think. Thanks

Money well spent, especially for the Ash Flash box.
