Interesting, the burner frame looks to be bare brass, all I've seen are bare steel. Can you take some more photos of the frame?

You are right, it is a brass burn frame. Not sure what to make of it myself.

That is sweet, indeed.  Look at the craftsmanship in the burner casting and overall construction.

Dude, this might answer the reason why it has a brass burner frame. Click image for larger version - Name: C4365CC5-2C67-4CC2-8936-FF041412D5A3.jpeg, Views: 346, Size: 178.91 KB

Doesn't compute, a customer brought in a 1945 canadian parts lantern, (The year most likely to have a bare brass frame) and traded in on a new 1944 US 237b, and the retailer swapped frames?

Dude, this ad is from 1943! We have also found that some of the 43 BX lanterns were using up the oblong Canadian winged fuel cap at this time also. It states that Coleman dealers or Jobbers, no matter in Canada or the US needed to turn in used or extra brass parts to support the shortage of needed items for the war time efforts.

I understand the ad is from 1943.....The frame on this gentleman's 237b is from 1945, a full year after his 237b was produced

While we are at it, Dan can you supply pics of the collar markings?

When I read the ad, I think that the parts are sent back to Coleman and melted down to create brass for new castings. Scrap metal collection was very popular during WWII. Steel, tin, etc was all collected to be reused as the first recycling efforts.

The collar states " Use kerosene only preheat generator before lighting"  "No.237B Coleman lamp and stove company  Wichita  Kansas" there are no other markings, sorry no photo, I had someone do the photo and I posted it.

Dmacp - The lantern on the far right is 237B that originally had a painted brass fount that somebody stripped and polished and then added the "use only kerosene decal. There's still paint on the bottom. The bottom has a 5 on the left and a 10 on the right, so I'm thinking it's October '45. I know it looks like nickel in the pic, but it's not...

thanks for clearing that up. I would have believed you if you said it was nickel plated though.

I have seen several 237B's with US civil defense stickers on them. I think they (CD) were restricted to kerosene during the war and that is the reason the 237B does not have the word "gasoline" on the frame rest or even on the valve wheel. The contract probably specified kerosene only. That is speculation on my part. They certainly had no problem with gasoline in 1951.

I may have some pictures. it was a white triangle with the letters "CD" in red, on a blue background. It fit on the side of the fount perfectly.

My 237B does not have it. Some other members here do.

<EDIT> looks like I saved a few images.
