I asked the owner to show you this beautiful original lamp that was found in this condition by him 15 + years ago in Minnesota, a fellow longtime Oklahoma collector friend and ICCC member has found several other Coleman treasures in his travels.

P.S. Missed you at Wellington!

Why is there never enough time to do it right but always enough time to do it over?

Wow, you friend has a beautiful lamp, Larry.  Based on the finial pictured above, the lamp could not be hung from the ceiling, whereas the 138’s pictured on Mr. Marsh’s site show finials that would allow lamp hanger rods to be used.  I wonder if either option was available at the time of purchase.

I believe that the 138 is similar to nearly all Coleman products in relation to components design changes as time passed, as for example the difference in some finals, plating and even painted finish. History shows it was common practice for Coleman many times to change individual component design and continue to use the same part number, but not 100% of the time either way. 

Steve : here is another example similar to yours.

thanks for the pics Larry !!!  one thing i have noticed , wile this is not a vase lamp , all the vase lamps use this Finial n post Larry posted a pic of ..... notice the top of the post is kinda rounded off ? thats cuz these are not threaded on the top for a hanging rod , but desighned so you can lift off the shade for lighting or what ever but not hang em .........now i dont know but i hear these are rather heavy due the base plate , maybe they just didnt intend for these to be hung . those other finial pics in the NEW book Mark dont look to be be what these originaly came with ...... i have one finial left of this style i saved just for this lamp . this is a repo but pretty nice , i think it was Jim Nichols who made these . these finials are desighned in a way that they sorta capture the nut on the post so the shade  cant spin around on the post like some of the others .

also the decals all seem to be just 138 but the diagram above clearly shows 138A and 138B . the two known styles are different enough i would think they also had a different model number but that doesnt seem to be documented ....

Thank you both for the information regarding the finials.  I have come across a finial that I thought was similar but now that I see the one that Steve pictured, mine is nothing like the ones pictured above.

now looking over a coleman parts catalog from 1941 , it shows both the A and the B base plate n handle , one is half the price of the other , one is painted and the other plated ...... im sure the plated parts are the more expensive to produce , those are all marked for 138B ..... so thats what im thinking i have , a 138B .......but a regular 138 decal would do me just fine ....

the painted base plate was 75 cents , wile the plated one is a buck n a half :-)

most all the 138's i have seen were repaints , but this one Larry posted is all original i believe . im trying to decide where to put the decal on mine and how to clock the valve , problem i am having is if i clock it like this one , you cant service the pump , you cant pull out the pump cuz as it comes up it hits the valve wheel n stops . that cant be right . maybe if its clocked a bit off it will clear . my valve want to stop oposite of this one with fuel cap under the valve wheel ........i know its not really a big deal , but lots of thought goes into rebuilding and its throwing for a bit of a curve .. mine may not end up clocked like this one .
