Headed out with my brother this morning to meet up with another local member/collector and look at some pieces that he was interested in selling. Had a great time and ended up leaving with two beautiful pieces to add to my collection. A 2-‘78 639 CPR and a 3-‘89 286A.
On our way home we stopped at a Dunkin Donuts. Across the street there was an outdoor tag sale going on at an old gas station. Looked like it might be promising so we took a stroll over. Lots of old random junk. But, in the midst of everything was this little gem from 10-‘73.
All the paperwork was in the box, accessory safe was on the lantern with the mantles, generator and wrench inside.
Also got the 242 frame for my parts stash.
Seemed like a good kick off to the weekend! Hope you folks are having a good one, and thanks for looking.
Looking for 10/2015 & 1/2020 B-Day Lanterns
I love the smell of naphtha in the morning!
