[welcome], Mr. Appel, from Pennsylvania!
Nice to know you found something; if you're able to share pictures (and can size them down somewhat), it would aid us in helping you.

Lanterns are like tools. 
You can not have too many unless your wife says so!!

Gas is what you use for washing parts diesel is for making power!

Welcome from Leavenworth, KS!  Not military, but you can see it from here.  Fount bases essentially "left over" and used on civilian lanterns.

Welcome Chris, from Switzerland. Nice big hat.
Is this your first Coleman, or do you already have others?
If the first, then order some shelves already. You will need them.

The US stamped 220/228 Cs I've seen have been from 1945.

Whether the US stamped Bs, Bxs and Cs were every actually used by the US military (as opposed to being approved for use) is open to debate. I doubt that many--if any--lanterns actually sent overseas ever returned. Not the military way to bring stuff home back then.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

I agree, not likely overseas duty but there were hundreds of bases built up stateside around the country that could have seen use by these lanterns.  I remember driving through North Central Oregon and seeing a huge munitions storage base I never heard of.   Rows and rows of storage bunkers.  Likely in preparation of the West Coast invasion that fortunately never occurred. Thankfully, we were successful during the battles in the Aleutians.  

I like to check important  historical occurrences when I find a new GPA.  Fun way to study history. My 3F stove was made when SPAM was introduced.

That's the Umatilla Depot. More or less in my backyard. It stored cold-war era chemical and biological munitions until about a decade ago when they were all destroyed by incineration. Or so they say. Just in case of a mistake, they issued the locals a roll of Visqueen and a couple of rolls of duct tape so they could "shelter in place". All we needed to win a chemical and biological exchange, I guess.
