Hi folks, I’m very excited to share with you that I have acquired a coleman factory 200b classic dated 8/94 electrified Christmas gift lantern & a gold plated 290 gift lantern dated 8/86. Now I have to ask my wife if I can build another shelf.

Great finds. The electric 200 is not a very common find at all. Now you will need the 285 Nickel plated version to complete the Collection.

Hey Virgil - A WARNING - IF I remember correctly those Coleman electrified lamp/lanterns are only safe to use in the State of Georgia.  I'm thinking you need to send it to me, just to be safe!!

On a serious note, that lamp is really cool.  First one I have ever seen.  Congrats on a super find!

That's a new one on me and quite a treasure. It's a good thing some artsy fartsy person didn't get a hold of it and convert it to gas.

Laughing my arse off. God I wish people could have your sense of perspective humor Karen. The world would be a much better place. Thank you

Those are both very cool pieces to add to any collection. Great score on both of them.
