Hello all, I bought an old motorcycle today and had this thrown in. I've been out of the Coleman scene a while and narrowed down my collection to only my favorites/rarer ones.

Seems to have an original globe. Little rough but can't complain. Looks very Kamp-Lite esque. Any way to date these? What about a model number? I see it has white on the underside of the vent, like a 228.
Cheers!

David, how about a picture of the old motorcycle? I was on a nice, long ride today, and that would be nice to see.
Sorry I can't help with the Thermos lantern, but I've never had one, and know little about them.

Here you go, it's a 1980 Suzuki SP400. Definitely a project, but it's all there. Ran well but one of the kickstart gears is missing a few teeth. Looks like someone didn't understand the decompression lever...

Nice bike and a cool lantern to boot. Do the normal cleanup on the lantern and enjoy it. The pushed in section of the collar is factory for access to the lighting hole. E.

Should be a model number on the base rest.  Made in 1962 or 63 after AGM merged with Thermos and the Albert Lea factory in Minnesota was closed and operations moved to Macomb, IL.  Note that the pump is the same as late model Kamplights and the generator maybe be the same.
The next generation of Thermos lanterns used the pump/filler setup which happens to have the same threads as the 1930's AGM models with a pump/filler.

I don't see any markings on the collar/base rest. 
I gave it a good clean with soap and water. I was going to light it, but I've got rust in the pump tube, a rock hard leather, and yes, that is the check valve stuck on the end of the pump shaft. Have more work to do yet

David, thanks for the motorcycle picture.  I once had a 1979 (?) Yamaha 125 I brought back home from Japan with me.  Well, not as checked in luggage, LOL!

That looks to be a Thermos 8311. Should say Thermos 701 on the glass, Small single. Early model with the original style pump, smooth coat non-hammered paint, and the early Thermos badging.

1961 only IIRC.

It appears that you've pulled out the check valve with the pump shaft.  These are nice little lanterns that burn bright and loud.  Yours has the more desirable pump.  The generators for these sit low relative to the burner tube, so you need to use a 24A mantle to get the heat down to the generator.  Those fat generators take a while to warm up also, so if you don't want a fireball at light-up time you'll want to use some pre-heat.
