I found this one this morning. I have it’s cousin a CL1/286A in Terry Marsh’s Collection. The guy looked about 70 yo but he said he was turning 80 yo this year and he still had his Harley in the garage. 
For some reason he told me that he hadn’t burned it in 14 years. It had good mantles on it, a small amount of fuel and it fired right up. 

Coleman made this A version of Model 286 in March 1986 but on the decal it is still  identified as Model CL1 as above. The A version includes a heat shield and lacks a frame and instead uses the burner assembly to support the vent and bail (right image). Note the “trough” around the mixing chamber that nests inside the ventilator and steadies it. The instruction sheet notes U.S. Patent No. 4,522,582. This patent is for a Schrader valve that regulates the fuel/air flow from the fount. The patent was granted on June 11, 1985. This lantern is in Greg Rubin’s collection.

That's pretty interesting I must say. I have some of those cl1's and cl2's never paid much attention Greg. I must check them when I get off my comfortable lazy butt....🙂

Cool find.  Good catch on what many would suppose to be just another lantern.
