Being new to all the Coleman camping items on this forum and not finding in a search I wondering about dating the two lanterns I have. Both were bought used. The 220F I know I bought over 35 years ago. The other in a plastic case about 10 years ago. I memory serves me correctly I did not pay over 20.00 each.

Owned this 220F for years before I discovered the bottom is removable so you can store parts there. Still have my two burner stove but haven't dug it out yet.

Each of those will have the month and year stamped on the underside

That particular 220F appears to be 1970-72

As Rob stated, the date stamp is on the bottom of those two models.
For example, mine has a 5(May) 83(1983).

A google search will be more fruitful. As some of them are different. But those two should be on the bottom. The left number is the month and the right is the year. Your stove will be under the tabs that hold it on the case. month and year as well

Thanks for the answers. On the 220 F I had to take the bottom cover off. It is dated 12/71. The other is dated 1/88. Now to dig out my other Coleman items.

The "bottom cover" on your 220F is called a "Parts Safe". It's an accessory, not part of the lantern. If left on the lantern--especially if the lantern is used outside in wet weather--it causes the rim area of the fount to rust.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

Welcome from Washington State! Looks like a great beginning to your Coleman collection. My advice is to start collecting everything Coleman and then sort it all out later. LOL. That way you won't miss anything.
Not looking for anything. I have too much already, my wife says.
