This is a 12-71 220F I got with a 5-53 200A Silver Band and I finally got around to gutting it and cleaning it up. Common, but it's a nice one. I was going to try and save the silklites, but the air tube and screws were real stuck and the silks got trashed. Once I got the whole cleaner assembly out, I had to take a torch to the screw and tube. Never did get the mixing chamber loose. Steel air tube was the problem. The early ones were brass. When did they change? The other thing I noticed that was different was that the inside of the fount is coated in some dark red stuff. Did the factory start coating the founts at some point? I don't think this has ever been apart before and is in too good of shape to have a rust issue. The bottom is real nice. Also the air tube screws were philips head and more of a pain to remove. They used to be slotted. I'll stick with the older stuff, thanks!

Wow Gar. What an excellent job cleaning those up. That 220F is a real shiner!! The 200 is pretty spiffy too.

Nice lanterns👍, your correct, you have a later 220F. Early 70s? The early Fs still had all brass burner and non coated tank, also a different burner cage. Maybe even a different vent? Scalloped vs square slots? Maybe that was the H models...

Not many 220f will drop a jaw like that one. And yes some time in the 70s they added  a fount liner and they will fail and peel inside but it’s not a deal breaker just cross that bridge if you get there. you did a excellent job on both

I think the change to steel was in 70 maybe 69. My 68 is brass 70 is steel.

they are both nice. I don't think a steel silverband is very common at all. Less common than a blackband.

The 220F was in pretty good shape when I got it. Was not running as bright as it should and pulsed, so I went after all that brass stuff. We'll see... don't want to get it all sooty for a little bit. The silver band took more work with some spot painting. I'll post more about it and some ceramic vs brass burner tests I did on it. I got the two together. Gar
- Thanks Dave, ya, I was goin for spiffy.
- Thanks Toby, Lee, Mark, James and L.J. and for the fount liner and steel info. The burner caps are also steel.
- Dan, I was actually referring to the 220F as common. Never heard of a silver band before this. Now I found another at 3 times the price and half the condition. I'm gonna pass on that one.

Anyone know of the silver band timeline? I just saw a black band topic and they were 12/51 to 4 or 5/53. My silver band is 5/53. I have a 9/55 and L. J. has a 6-55 with an aluminum band. I"m guessing in early 1954 for the last one.
Thanks, Gar

Just did some searching and here is what I found. Perhaps BBs and SBs overlapped a month. G

- Black Bands were from around Feb. 1952 (some at Dec 1951) to about April or May 1953.
- Silver Bands were from May 1953 to early 1954
- My earliest aluminum band is 2-54. I have both a black band and a silver band dated 4-53. With Coleman there are probably exceptions. But I think the silver band began in 4-53.  I believe they were made for less than a year. -Dmacp
- 5-53 is the last month for Black Bands and also the month Silver Bands were made -Rubing

This is in good shape. It's been cleaned a bit but is as found some 20 years ago.

Someone took real good care of that one, or left it in a box! A real beauty Dan.

Toby, as I was looking around today I saw these. Looks like the F & H had the square-ish holes and the Js on up had scalloped. G

Dan Van thanks and Dan MacP, I was just at a friends getting a pesky check valve out of the Silver Band and he had a nice one dated 8-54, so they were made later than I thought, like after your 2-54 aluminum band. Crossover madness. G

G,
I have an 8-54. It has a silver band but it is aluminum. Maybe another overlap period?

D, So they painted aluminum silver? That seems counter intuitive. I am thinking Jeff's 8-54 was steel as he got out a magnet to check things. Jeff is a madman and has at least one of every year of 200As... all 32 years. G

No-it's just bare aluminum. 
I have almost all the years, up to the end of the tall vents, which was about early 1963.
