I'm curious why they seem so high. I'm not talking about unfired shelf queens but just regular user lanterns. They don't seem to be rare and you can hardly give a 220 away but a 200 will fetch new lantern prices. What am I missing?

    Over the past year or so I've found 4 or 5 200A's separately for $10 a piece. If you look hard enough you can find them at reasonable prices. I agree though, at flea markets and even most garage sales the price on them is jacked up. Even people that know nothing about lanterns think that those red Coleman ones are worth big bucks.

If you're looking at the auction site, virtually anything with the Coleman name on it tends to be asking for stupid money lately.  Yard sales, estate sales, and flea markets tend to be the best bet.  Also, as TwoCanoes stated, they're cute.

I ordered a chicken and an egg from Amazon. I'll let you know.

If it makes you feel any better, I passed on a 220j at a yard sale last month for $45.

I noticed the same thing in Oregon and just recently in California.  In Oregon in the same shop where I picked up a really nice 242A for a very reasonable price, I was looking at really beat-up 200s for twice the price or more.  Other local shops were the same way. Recently in a California shop there was a fairly new, not unfired, 200 with box but with no price tag.  I had noticed it in the same shop 6 months ago for $110 and thought that was too much but figured a couple of months on the shelf they would want to deal.   I asked for a price and the dealer got out an IPad and wanted $180 for it. I declined of course.  So I guess it is fashion and too many eBay prices. I don’t do yard sales but may start.

They are the 57 Chevy of Coleman lanterns. Super high production #s but very desirable and nice examples demand high prices.

not looking for any more Bday gpas. Honestly, if you have a 10-72 don’t let me know about it.

Yeah, I know, but Big in Thailand wasn't a Tom Waits song.

For those prices, I have a pile of them Ill sell for that and laugh the whole way to the next flea market with the cash. In this area, you just cant get the high dollars out of lanterns. The younger generation doesnt camp on the large scale that my generation did, so they have little interest in these type of items
