Possibly this person - born 1910 and died 1975 in Salem SD.  
What year is the lantern?

The stress of working on a 220 was too much for him.  🙂

Nice someone added their info to an otherwise one of a million lantern. Was raised to add our name to anything valuable. Not to stop it from walking off, but to make sure it would find it's way home. At least that is what my mom told me when she put my name on the inside of my rain gear.

The H is not usually included in any "best of" Coleman lists, but they certainly took a bunch of the stress out of field maintenance that the B-F had.

True, but my work on earlier ones pretty much soured me on all of them.

B, c, d, e and d’s are easy peasy compared to euro petromax style lanterns. Petromax have much more moving parts, seals and pips to service.

this one has to go, I’m not keeping any 220’s

I've rebuild close to 30 if not more 220/228s in the past 8 months... I don't see any problem rebuilding them other than being careful with the paint where the collar meets on the top of the fount... Seems that could've been thought out better.

The collar to font is a touchy mating. Not tight enough & the cage will turn, to tight and the paint may chip. Coleman assembled these once, never figuring we would be fettling with them. The seal of the valve body to the font is a good example.

I agree. They would have a much higher “cool” factor if Coleman would have done away with paint altogether and kept them all shiny nickel!!! I can’t say no to nickel, I don’t care what brand it is

 Yes< had to take the whole valve off and was ridiculous tight and with a lot of thread sealant had to use my bench vise to get better grip.
