I’m a Coleman lantern newbie,I bought a few in the last couple months.  Mostly 220s. I have a 220 E stamped from 1963. I hated it at first because it wasn’t burning bright or getting the right oxygen to it. The mantels would flicker but after some YouTube how to videos I got it burning like new. I took entire lantern apart n used compressed air n carb cleaner. It took me awhile to get parts back to where they belong n I have to say it’s my favorite go to lantern now. I’ll try n post a pic of it hanging from my one tree. I used my Coleman brand hanger the guy gave me when I bought it.

Very nice. Now you need a lamp or two and some stoves and many many more lanterns and you’ll be set.

Man I don’t even have a heater. Make sure to take pictures in landscape mode or crop them a little bit for them to be upright.

Greetings and welcome. You tube is a great resource for information. You can also use the search function here for additional help. Your 220E looks like it's burning nice and bright.

Another welcome from Colorado!

It sounds like you got the bug and there are lots of enablers here. I began with single-burned backpacking stoves and later got into . . . ALL THE REST! I picked up two 2-burner stoves this last weekend. One was a 1962-64 Coleman 425C and the other a 1940s-ish Preway 402. A lot of these antique malls, where there are lots of sellers in booths, also have "garage sale" sections. That's a good place to look. I've picked up a bunch of items at places like that. Some sellers price their stuff high, while others price the stuff to move so they can pay for the booth, so I try to check every couple of weeks. I've also picked up some items at pawn shops. Of course, if you see a sign for an estate sale you might want to stop in, and also garage sales. Mostly, try to be patient.  And, the sooner you discover what it is you really like the better.

If you like this stuff, start building shelves . . . seriously. Build (or buy) shelves.

Good to know is it rare? It’s my favorite one now it wasn’t fun taking apart n putting back but once I finally did it felt great that I repaired it just cleaning it

Not rare, Coleman took the best of the E and F and made a unique lantern in my eyes.. my favorite of the E run.
Here's mine.

Here’s another one, my most recent full fettle with a repaint. This is a 4-63. These appear to be collectable but not necessarily rare. Click image for larger version - Name: 53C9D4A9-9D6F-4CA0-B795-BA0243A9F31E.jpeg, Views: 47, Size: 179.35 KB

@Wolfbiter1 A 220k is the last model 220 they made. I would buy most any lantern for 20 bucks if it looks nice, but many of the long time collectors here won’t spend more than 5-10 bucks on a standard h-k 220’s.

So the 220s does it start with a and then ends in K model? I didn’t know that thank you for the insight that’s why I went on here I need to learn
Dean Abraham 
Quote
Leviticus Tomethreus
It starts with nothing. People call it a slant I think because the generator is slanted. Those are rare I hear and I know they’re cool. Then it goes B (always nickel I believe), C (painted because they were made during the war era, D (started painted, then nickel, then painted, E (always painted), F, G (was an experimental model to see how putting the tip cleaner in the valve area, so the tip cleaning lever comes out of the ribbed aluminum collar), H (first official model to have the tip cleaning lever come out of the collar), And J and K are basically the same as H as far as I know. There is probably some wrong info in this. The true collectors will correct me if I’m wrong.

Welcome from Leavenworth, KS.  NICE lantern!   The trannies, while not "rare" are certainly a bit HTF, and most folk are glad to have one.
