I picked up an unknown deep blue single mantle lantern that appears to be an Re branded/renamed AGM3608 and everything about the terry marsh description seems to agree except it has a steel Fount and no tag on the collar but has the rivets set where a tag should be Can anyone Id the lantern company from the remaining decal on the fount. I have it working somewhat but with lots of ghost flames ill try a couple different tips from Coleman generators I have The burner cap has lots of holes instead of a screen and seems larger that a 288 or 220 and more like a 200A or 202 Do these single AGM's use a larger mantle than a 21 tie on.

Interesting, Bob; the remnant of that label is new to me. 
Do you have a picture of the complete lantern?

It has three 3/8 air tubes going to a doughnut air chamber that feeds the mixing chamber from the side, ( weird ) Everything from the valve up is sitting in evap o rust in pieces until tomorrow. Not going to be a pretty lantern , but I will get a pic of it then . Vent is chipped but straight and the collar is a bit rusty.  But it is sporting a nice Pyrex/Green Sunrise globe so that puts a bit of lipstick on the Pig . There is a pic of it in my earlier post under Weekend Finds along with my 9D  and 139 find

The Evap O Rust worked better that I figured in 90 degs and warmed to 110 too. Here are pics, Here is hoping. Unless it is a frankie??? The vent has a rectangular hole to locate it and the bail on the mixing chamber,  it uses a brass bolt with captive cup washer

Cool looking lantern!!  As to your mantle size question,  I think a lot of people like to use one a tad bigger than a 21 for a AGM single.

It was made by American Gas Machine Company.  They used steel tanks when making lanterns for others, an incredible irony over the long term.
The pump looks to be 1937-39.  Compare it (the pump) to the AGM 3705 (or 3708-also single mantle but larger tank.)  Likely used the same generator as their #100, 3608, 3705 and 3708 which was part #L593.

( Thanks ) Are there any L593 generators to be had?  It had a generator but the orifice/tip was missing, I tried several coleman tips as the thread works well, tried a "P"- Bad Ghost flames and the "6" from a 200A and a "V" from the 220 work well enough. All three are supposed to be .007 inch The pricker and wire are intact and work too. If I take it apart I will try a 111-24 for kicks. I used the rolled up silk lite that was inside the globe when I picked it up but it has a small thin spot near the bottom. I am still hoping to ID the decal on the fount. Seems I saw it somewhere here.

Looks like my AGM mod. 100 but with a blue fount and the pump top is more dish shaped and mine is more of the Coleman style from 242's etc. Mine is nickel. 

You can see the beginning and end of the company location on the lower gold paint line on the decal, "AL.................MINN." The last letters the abbreviation for Minnesota at the time. "ALBERT LEA, MINN.

I'm not saying it's a model 100 but it

Seeing what Chuck posted got me thinking.

I googled “Atichison Manufacturing Co. Albert Lea, MN”. Looks like there was such a tool manufacturer back in the period this lantern could have been made. Their branding included the logo “LESOTA”.

Could this have been branded for them but manufactured by...?

AGM 3608 is very like model 100 but has a plastic control instead of the fibre of the 100. A steel fount version in blue was sold as Lesota brand. Probably quite uncommon as it would have been mainly local sales and in 80 years most of these steel tank versions would have rusted away. This is the only other one I know of up to now. ::Neil::

Well done Neal.Thanks, That looks to be the one for sure and it works again as it should. I am Grateful it has the steel fount and no stress cracks so common on the Brass  The green sunshine globe will have to reside on it as long as I have it unless someone has a correct original for sale  Likely from the mid thirty's time frame?? Between both decals one could almost re-create a good one.

I have't a clue. I suspect a bulged globe like the 200A or 202 as that is what it came with  but because it is an AGM was there something different, I dont know either. Maybe just marked different. The pics of a 3608 on terry marsh site shows a bulge globe,  I just figured to ask since it is an unusual duck and something all correct seems better on the shelf. I am not a stickler for original stuff but I try to get close when I can.

so a “heat resistant” could be? That’s for AGM stuff.

There also was a green painted steel fount, and a chrome fount with a green vent, all unbadged. Sounds like the rivets are there where the badge goes.
As for the AGM model 100, there are variations, Tall vent with heat shield like the 3608, and short vent without the heat shield, which was the early one with the fiber wheel. The model 3608 has a larger bead on the fount, they were probably trying to correct the cause of the cracking which seems to start around the bead. Unsuccessfully too.

Now all I need is a "Lesota" decal to finish mine.

They used either a MacBeth Thermo or a 242 sized mica chimney. But a 200 globe fits them fine.

Nice looking lantern.  How does one even come up with a Lesota pic to create a decal. I figure mine is going to stay as a nice working survivor. I had it hanging on the shepherds hook lighting the patio last night. I also find it funny that the badge rivets are there but no badge. But to have a good decal would be wonderful if they become available

there is an Achilles' heel. The vent screw hole is open to the mixing chamber, causing smelly fumes, and hopelessly corroded threads that cannot be backed out. I'm making a vent stud for mine, and will drill and tap the original vent screw so it looks stock.

There is also an issue with the pump-it is open to liquid fuel. Something to be aware of.

The devices like the 3608 and my M1950 all have that Pip in the fuel issue and concern. The M1950 got exciting once when the Pip did not seal and fuel was oozing out the top after pushing the pump out to the stop.  I have been lighting mine with the globe off to keep the soot down if it flames up a bit and have even had flame coming out of the 1/4-20 chamber hole. I use Copper antizieze on most any and all threads especially any inside the hot section and so far no sticking. But as you stated these can be a bit smelly
