Found this homely 2-66 228F with this sticker. I only bought it for the amber globe but am curious about the sticker. Note the upside down pop riveted collar lol.

Those collars are very rare! The upside-down printing was only for a single week in Feb of '66!
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

That's funny, Timm. You got a chuckle out of me as I sit and ice my sore knee. Steve, I wonder why someone would feel the need to pop rivet a collar? How the heck do you break a collar? Then again, why do so many lantern owners insist on painting things with a lantern next to the object they're painting?

I'm pretty sure those are factory paint speckles. A rare art deco style option.

Can’t comment on the pop rivets but I thought I remember reading that some repair places would put the collar on upside down to denote that the lantern has been repaired?
Cool sticker.

It's also clocked pretty far off, so it might not have even been the service center put it on upside down. Neat sticker though

Yeah I'm pretty sure the service center had nothing to do with the rivets or the sloppy assembly. It fired right up but isn't quite as bright as it should be and surely needs the f/a tube cleaned. It fired right up albeit weakly with the antique brown fuel that was in the tank but I mostly bought it for the amber globe. Even the chimney is half smashed.  I see a parts/experimental lantern.

I've had lots of things, Coleman appliances included, that the spot-welds failed on. Fortunately, there''s an HVAC shop right down the block and the guy there has re-spot-welded things for me many times for free. If I didn't have that resource, I might just opt for pop-rivets, too. They never fail in reasonable use.
