I've been a big fan of the big singles for a while now. Loud or quiet, big or small, no matter who made them...I like them.

I've added a 236A and a 639C to my shelves, but the 635 has seemed, at least since I've been looking, to be a bit scarcer than those models, and usually priced like it.

This was on my list for the Jahn/Snook auction, and as fortune would have it, I won it:
[236-lantern-008] 
The original vent is a bit rough, but that shouldn't be an issue:
[236-lantern-004] 
It had this ugly silver painted burner frame on it, so I ordered one NOS from our host.  Much better:
[236-lantern-003] 
Believe it or not this is the first lantern I have ever won at a real in person auction - I don't really count ebay, thats more of a snipe fest, often times. Since it has that distinction, along with its ownership heritage, I got an NOS vent for it as well:
[236-lantern-006]  Its a lighter color 639 vent, but it looks good. I'm going to send the original, or maybe amnother 639 vent, off to IPE once I decide on a color.I'm considering something red, or maybe higgins/thermos light blue. Replacement parts that fit this model other than the gen are quite inexpensive and available, and gens aren't that hard to find for it yet.

I'm tickled to give this one a good home. Fire pics coming  after dark.

NICE - A lantern with a story is always more interesting!
