Hello and thank you for accepting me into the club.
So I’m new to the hobby and find it very interesting. It started when I pulled my fathers old 220H from 1973 out of the basement. It definitely brought back some great memories from when I was a kid camping with my family. well I picked up a 220F from 1979 in great condition for $10.00 A couple weeks ago. Now I may have the bug. My son is a collector of old hit and miss engines along with old fans and other pieces of history. So I think this may be something for Dad to collect. Definitely lighter than old farm engines. 🙂

So I am looking for my birthday lantern. March of 1968. If there is anyone that knows of one out there please reach out to me. I have already searched E Pay so I have seen what they have. 

Thanks everyone, Have a great day.

I've yet to see a March '68 Coleman lantern. But I have seen that in the Sears lanterns made by Coleman. The only thing I can figure us that month the line was dedicated to Sears production. You're looking for a blue fount, black top double mantle version of the 220 or 228. 
I'm looking for one as well. They pop up on the bay but I'm looking in the wild for mine.
And welcome! Glad you joined us.

Welcome!  Can't help you on the bday lantern, but I find it very interesting how many of us have gotten wrapped up in this hobby because of our father's ( & sometimes grandfathers) lanterns....that's how I started.😃

Welcome, from North Texas, I too caught the bug because of my Dad and Grand Pa. I have memories as a young scruff following my Grand Pa mornings and evenings from the house to the barn to milk and feed livestock, wickie was also used in the house as they had no electricity or indoor plumbing until 1974. Then about 6-7 years ago I took my Dads 220E from a shed at my Mom's house and started trying to get it to work, the rest as they say is history, and a heck of a lot of fun!

Another welcome from Colorado! Searching for a pair of old single-burner military stoves my father had when I was a kid is what got me started in this hobby. Enjoy!
