My 1981 mil-spec has it's original box to rest in but my old 1945 Coleman did not and that didn't seem right so I made one up for it.

No I don't have enough time and shipping would be costly.

Hello all
Id like to get in on this group. Here are mine all found locally in the last year except the 523, my dad got it from a neighbor a couple years ago. Some of these I've decided to let go of but this is what I started with. The 1977 Armstrong is my favorite, only because it was made here in my hometown. I'd love to find an Armstrong 523 eventually to complete the set.

If I can get #0651 in honor of my father, Its his birthday and he served in the Navy on a destroyer in the last years of Vietnam.

Thank you to all Veterans,
Mike

How likely is it to ever find the case for a 527?

I have a 1952 and a 1969 as of now. If this is still a thing I’d like number 1278
On the 1969, I know the clips holding the fuel cap and funnel aren’t correct. Currently looking for something similar.

Very nice, but we require details, is that a Coleman other manufacturer, and date?

Inquiring minds want to know these things.....    😉

Hi Tom, love inquiring minds, coz I got one of those, somewhere. Here is the bottom of the fount. Looks to be dated 969 which, I believe is September 1969.

Now if I fantasise, I could delude myself in thinking it could have been with the US forces in Vietnam when I was there ...... mmmmm if I fantasise further I could have seen it lit as well ........ gotta love fantasies.



Joe, please may I have 1970 .......

It could have been there. At least it was somewhere in inventory when you were there.

and it's a Coleman, sweet. 

I have 3 that served same time I did, all SMP lanterns. 
I have 6 milspec's, but only 1 actual Coleman ('65)
