So this popped up advertised as an "OLD COOKER". It was a mere $25. But it was a hour and 17 minutes away. Ya. I went for it,,,lol. 


Farm fresh. See the cow.

I don't know if I did good or not. After getting there I found that it had a broken valve, busted gauge lens, and missing the bail. But I wasn't going home empty handed after that long drive.

It seems to have the wrong valve in it. And it's broke.

The gauge is busted but it seems to be working.

[20200914-203639]

Two of a kind.
[20200914-203302]


1.This one had the paper label. Isn't someone making those?

2. This has the half moon gauge. What would the date range be on that.

3. Are these supposed to be clocked a certain way. It is different the the other one. Or is it just how ever they turn out.

I had more questions but the whole picture loading ordeal made me forget,,,lol.

Thanks for any input.

Mine has the same gauge as yours, and the lens was broken out also.  I had heard that sometimes there is a date inside the gauge on the back of the face plate.  I carefully disassembled mine and sure enough, April 1937.  I was also able to clean the lens and rotate it so that it covered the opening, thereby keeping the original lens.  Nice find!

Good info. Did you take the gauge off to work on it. Or just pop the cover off. I've read a lot lately about spinning the bung.

I passed up a pretty nice one awhile back with great original paint/decal and spare generator for $50... Because it was an hour and a half drive for me... Call me crazy ðŸ˜œ but I don't like driving, I did send the link to Jack but he was busy and missed it as well.. maybe another collector nabbed it. 

Besides how many 457s do I need ðŸ˜

There’s no stop to how many you need. What do you do when you want to display a bunch of lanterns indoors. Most of the lanterns you post about sit in the HGP, so you need a bunch for a bunch of lanterns.

It needed a good cleaning, so I took it apart to do that and replace the lens, but didn't need to replace the lens after all.  It's some kind of thick mica or celluloid.  Getting the cover off took some patience.

Cal  gauges can be calibrated.  You need to do it delicately, but I've managed it.

Thanks for the tip. But if you're saying that because it has a reading, it has a reading because I put air in it.

Maybe I misunderstood?

You mentioned it being broken,  and the glass looked good so I assumed it was out of calibration?

   I f any one is  willing to pay $200 and find someone close to Plattsburgh, NY area ( Burlington, VT is close) this looks pretty nice and has the pump with it!! I just found this tonight while checking my local CL for anything Coleman , and this popped up... it's about 3 hours from me and since I closed my Barber shop mid March I'm spending as little as possible.... and that on lanterns😁

Great score, Cal.  Well worth the drive, IMO.  If you end up needing to replace the crystal on the gauge, I've done it two ways.  Wood stove stores will have small mica panels, like the ones Fred uses.  That's probably optimal.  Also, a few years ago, a friend of mine replaced one by cutting out a circle on a 2 ltr plastic Coke bottle.  Worked like a charm.

Dang skippy I'd drive an hour for a $25 HGP;;In fact I've driven farther than that!!! That valve looks like it came from a 200 or something. It's usually the big knob on the fount thats missing. The stem breaks easy. It has a stop for the 1/4 turn. HGPs are really cool as you can see by Toby's pic. Great find and a real bargin as far as I'm concerned

I could be wrong, but I think that's the other valve he does? People break it all the time because it has a stop built into the knob. You have to push a button down for it to open past 1/4 turn after it gets going.

I did get a nos shaft from Mike though.
