I recently received two 228 lanterns dug out of a barn.  Had been there 30 years.  One is up and running.  The other need more work.  Date stamp is 8(August) year is just 6!  Never saw a single before.  Any ideas?

Paint over nickel.  Embossed w/Coleman logo.  Collar gone so exact 228 model unknown.  The other one is 1978.

It's not a nickel fount?

What Toby meant by must be a D is because you mentioned fount being paint over nickel and the pump clips on it must be a 228D as a 228B would have a screw on pump. Those are the 2 nickel plated 228 lanterns. A pic will help.

Well with all the details you give and pictures it appears to be a painted 228D... I'm a bit confused on the single digit dating for a D? Hoping someone can clear that up for you. I thought they used letters And a double digit year...

Check the sides of the fount with a magnet. If it's steel, you got a 228E from 1956 or 1960-61. (Look for a very faint number stamped next to the 6.)

Zulu is right! I bet that fount is steel not brass?

Fount looks steel to me?

August '56 228E. Try a magnet on it, but I see rust on the rim.

Next time, try chemical stripper just in case it really is a painted-over nickel fount.
