Hi all.
I think an explanation of all the common abbreviations (NOS, NIB etc. [PITA] and others) would help us non-native speakers very much. Sometime I can imagine what the meaning should be but sometimes it's quite difficult.
Thanks very much from Germany.
Erwin.

Rim Rash is evident on some NOS / NIB lanterns, too. Result of decades of storage and being moved from shelf to shelf...

ARM-PIT = Antiques Roadshow Moron- Price Instantly Tripled



This is used to describe the moron who wants way more than a lantern is worth due to seeing the antiques roadshow Coleman segment.

"Gold-Burg"
This would be a 200A series lantern created by combining a vent from a Gold Bond with a fount from a "Burgundy",or vice-versa.Certainly not eye pleasing by any means.Examples shown below.

Gold-Burg003.jpg "Gold-Burgs" image by BubbaDuff1
*Disclaimer:
No,repeat,no lanterns were hurt during this photo shoot.The 'red' lantern is not a Burgundy,but 'common red's' are regularly used as stunt-doubles,for the hard to find Burgundy models.Immediately after this photo was taken,these lanterns were quickly returned to proper assembly,so as not to be shunned by their counterparts.Please do not try this at home...These two are professionals....(but not 202 Professionals...)-Bubba

Storage Capacity: The amount of room one has for his/her Coleman collection.

Rolling of Eyes: The resulting behavior of "She Who Must Be Obeyed" when another Coleman item follows you home or arrives on the front porch from FedEx, UPS or USPS.

Aha!: The result when a lantern that needed a FFR is complete and works as advertised on the first light attempt.

Hmmm: The result when a lantern after a FFR is complete and does not work as advertised on the first light.
