I have one Mil-Spec lantern which works great. At the time I wasn't really looking to get one, just happen to come across it and well the deal was made. Recently I missed out on a brand new, never lit Mil-Spec because the seller wouldn't ship it. They are exceptional lanterns and everyone should have at least one in their collection, IMHO.

Anyway, in my opinion, I believe that the "most rare" of Mil-Spec lanterns has to be the special Inverted Coleman lantern that was produced for the military.

A picture of it can be seen on Terry's website:

A very rare Inverted lantern indeed!

I may be incorrect but since I've joined this forum, I've never seen one posted by anyone here?

Yea those are too awesome. Though I thought that the inverted MILSPEC was only prototyped

Someone not too long ago was asking about a globe for one, or was that an old thread that someone dug up?

Just from the bit of information on the Coleman Mil-Spec Inverted Lantern on Terry's website says that is was built for "Military trial" which is vague information but I suspect that there just might be a few out there? Anywhere from a dozen made to under twenty or maybe just two or three ? Really it's anyone's guess. All I know is that I'll always keep a look out for one, cause you just never know?

Also another little unknown lantern manufacture, The Mantle Lamp Co. Of America, made an Inverted Mil-Spec lantern for the military as well, that's just as rare, probably the rarest of them all!?

I don't claim to know anything about them but from what I think I've read on here, Seems like there has been a little mention of a few being known. I bet we can learn a little more when the new book gets here.
