  I found this great site a little over a year ago while researching a 1963 220E and a Dietz Monarch I acquired while cleaning out my BIL's house who had recently passed. I now own 20 lanterns! Mostly run of the mill 220/228's and 200A's from the 60's and 70's ...and a Turd. I also have a couple Sears black/blue big hats and a few nickel 228's from '48-'50 that I was excited to find. Just last night I picked up a two mantle AshFlash that is in nice shape. I never heard of them so I came to the CCF to hopefully find out something and of course everything I needed to know was there! 
  I've just recently retired (4/3/20) from the local electric utility after 37 years so now I'll have a lot more time to find/fettle more lanterns and hopefully contribute here on CCF. So, thank you to everyone who's  knowledge has helped me learn about GPA's and get all my lanterns burning!
I know you guys like pictures, so I will attempt to post a few. Hope it works.

Welcome! Nice group!

What's the one upper left with nickel fount and Coleman decal?
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

  Nothing in particular, I'd like to find a Milspec and obviously any of the older style lanterns. I just hit garage sales and check the online sites for local listings, not really into Ebay. So far all my lantern finds have been from $5-25
I forgot to mention that this site has also gotten me into Perfection heaters. I've got 3 of them, I think that's it for them. Maybe...

I love me some Perfection heaters!!! Those are awesome and in great shape.

 I believe that would make you eligible for the perfection heater collectors if you’re interested 👍🏻

Says Model 220E on the collar and B-48 on the bottom of the fount. I thought E started in 1952, maybe parts got swapped and decal added some where along the way? None of the other 3 nickels have any type of decal on them.

Greetings and welcome. That's a nice group of Perfection heaters as well.

Welcome from Colorado, Duane!  That’s a fine collection you have there and even threw in some heaters as well.  That tranny in your first picture looks especially nice!

Welcome from Coastal North Carolina.  Nice collection.  Hang out here and before you know it you'll be looking at irons and lamps and stoves, and discussing the relative merits of different air pumps, pip material and Amish mix. 😎

Welcome to the forum!  I have to admit I want to get a perfection heater so bad, but knowing nothing about them I have refrained from grabbing one. That needs to change soon!

Today I worked on the AshFlash I got Thursday. It cleaned up really well with just steel wool and glass cleaner. Looks like someone already took care of the loose burner cap issues these have. After new gas and mantles it ran flawlessly for over an hour!
