I picked up this lantern caddy in a big purchase awhile back as I have a small lantern case collection...(never ends huh?) Anyhow I didn't look inside of it till later on when I got home and seen it has an unfired 220F inside with a bunch of accessories. Pictures below.

My question is what would you do with this?.. my only interest is in the lantern caddy itself.. And the silk lites.. Would you break it apart and sell it off? Or keep it together and sell it that away? Thanks for any input.

It would look good up there with the rest of them...

Not familiar with the caddy, but given that's the first time I've ever seen a 220F in one I don't immediately think of the two having to go together. If you want the caddy but not the lantern. then sell the lantern IMO.

The lantern caddy from my understanding was made for any manufacture of lantern as it's adjustable height wise. Kind of neat..

As I recall - they were patented having to do with securing the lantern with the ball nut outside the case top.

It's kind of a time capsule IMO.

An unfired lantern, in a CASE, with all the goodies? Maybe ask $200? Might not get it but what's the harm? 

Or it could be a Shelf Queen. Those cases aren't 'rare' but they are not common either.

Yeah, not sure a 220F would command that kind of money, not that I'm looking to make anything. I feel like I gave what the caddy was worth hence not looking in it till I got home ðŸ˜ Mainly trying to make some room

It is really cool that the original funnel is still there - and I had not figured out that the Coleman Filter fit into it!
Also - the original fuel can - what a nice bonus!

And - can you take a good pic of both sides of the lantern Caddy paperwork?

Thanks so much for sharing!!!

Ha! A "ribbed band" type 220 someone posted delight in scoring an example of recently... (An H.) Well , a ribbed band anyways...

An unfired 220 might easily recoup your total investment. The hint of not knowing it was in the case puts cost low on the acquisition.
Collectors don't all get excited seeing one , but they remain a solid and practical and parts available lantern for those in the market.
Anyone from preppers , to a community off the electric grid.
Even barter could come of the 220. White gas for example comes to mind ,from folks who have access to bulk ;and could use or want another durable and serviceable (easy parts locating) lantern. .
Purty colors. Well , cept'n maybe that brown when it's on fire...

With being relatively new to collecting my opinion is certainly based on the "isn't that shiney and cool" thinking more than the "just another 220F" thoughts of experienced long term collectors. 

With that said, if you feel you only paid for the caddy and are just going to display the caddy on the shelf, I'd leave it in there as a time capsule as others have suggested. 

It's a testament to the wise decision the original purchaser made and to the value of a caddy.
In the future... I'm sure someone else would be quite excited to open it up and discover the contents too.

Unless there's a rush to part with it, you can keep it in the caddy for now.

I really like that boat bracket, and it too is new!

I’m in the “sit tight” camp.

It won’t take up any more space on the shelf with all the goodies packed inside, and it buys you some time to decide what’s best for you and the lantern.

I’d also put a little note inside the case. Jot down some specifics on the purchase; who from, where, when and cost.

Heck, maybe you’ll forget about it for 10 or 20 years and stumble on it again  🙂

That is a real nice find though!

I just sold a new in box 220j here on the forum for 60.00 shipped. Cost of shipping killed me but hey it made someone happy. I only bought It for someone else to enjoy. If your not into it get rid of it. I’m getting to the point now that if I won’t display it I’ll sell it.

I appreciate everybody's input, I'll probably put everything back into the caddy and stick it up on the shelf for the time being. I have absolutely no use for these unfired lanterns... I don't enjoy them the same as the ones I burn. I've had a few and usually get rid of them cheap. This will probably be no exception, just need to find the collector. I passed on several unfireds here a couple months ago at a local pickers place... Not because he was too high priced... But had no desire to own them... Maybe I'm strange ðŸ˜œ I like user lanterns and stoves

That could be fun! Occasionally a long time collector here goes digging around in their attic or shed and finds something they forgot they had, and it's a happy "find feeling" all over again.

What are the odds- that is my birthday!  Matter of fact my daughter bought me a 4/64 220 earlier this year on the ‘e’ site for my birthday.  unlike this one it was pretty beat up. Still love it since who knows how long she trawled the ‘bay to find it.

Me being a bit of a preservationist would keep it intact, a 56 yr. old untouched item like you have there would rate highly in my collection.
