New to this site and thank you for having this wealth of information. Have been picking up Coleman items over the last few years at yard sales. Ran into this lamp and can't find a model number anywhere on it. Can someone please show me how I can find this information out?  DSC_3380.jpg  DSC_3381.jpg  DSC_3384.jpg

Thanks for the reply. Can you tell me what the year and month dates are on this and where would I look for the model number on the lantern?

August of 1943 judging by the numbers on the bottom. Definitely a wartime B! Nice find ðŸ‘

Yep it’s a 220BX US stamp on bottom is the giveaway.Later models were given model 252 by Coleman but not actually marked as such.Other manufacturers didn’t mark them either later ones had OD green paint on them and a parts well and chains on filler and a funnel.             Scott

The wartime B's were for civilian use not government. Larry @coleman54 has some old documents but I can remember what post I seen them on.

It's a wartime B or BX based on the date and steel parts. The early 220C and 228C was also stamped US.

Obviously, the fuel cap is not original. It should be steel like most of the rest of the lantern. Steel was used during the war as brass, nickel and aluminum were strategically critical metals. Even the direction disk in the valve wheel is steel!
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.
Walk a mile in a man's shoes before you criticize him--then you're a mile away, and he has no shoes.

the 220C was stamped on the collar. I would say a August 43 Model "B" or "BX". Hope that rust spot on the bottom doesn't go through.
