While cleaning up a 220E today, I was surprised to find that it had steel burner tubes rather than brass.  Is this a frankenlantern?  Does the steel tube belong to a war time 220 series?

I am cleaning up a 228e as well that I just got and it also has steel burner tubes also. I was wondering what was up as well.

There were some steel parts substituted during the Korean conflict. Around 1952?  I think your parts are original.

I bought a complete non running big hat made by Coleman for Sears dual lantern last year.  Looks like the 1964 pictured on Terry Marsh's site but not as nice by a long shot.  Had been in a flood but inside of the tank was clean. 

Was surprised to find steel burner parts air tube and all.  Looked like it belonged on my 220C.  Maybe they used cheaper parts on the Sears units.

This one was from 9/53, so perhaps a Korean war leftover parts lantern? Or perhaps someone fetteled it before and swapped parts?

So that's two observered 9/53's with steel (yours and mine).  Doubt it's a coincidence.  I'd say leftover parts.
