Anyone familiar with these polymer/plastic heat sheild/reflectors? Had a chance to pick one of these up before and someone else beat me to it. Saw this one on a nice 242C lantern with all it's original paperwork and used the buy it now. Can not seem to find any pictures or info on them. Kind of looks like one of the products of the 60s when the space age took off. Not sure if it was supposed to be a sheild or a reflector or both.

I don't think the plastic heat shields worked out all that well on the Shuttle.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

For comparison tomorrow I’ll post a picture of a cool I believe custom reflector I have on a 242B or C. It’s pretty neat but they drilled holes and bolted it on a relatively nice vent.
That’s an interesting price on that lantern.
It will stay on there forever!

To me a lamp without a shade is creepy!

I run all my lanterns in turn & plan on using this one too.  Would it be a good idea to try putting it on another old 242 in lesser condition  and fire it up there first?    The included literature, gen, mantle was a nice bonus. Agree the vent looked pretty good too, and the "Sportsmans __mp Shield" looked kind of cool. Again I can not find a pic or any other info on the "shield". Or whether it is supposed to be a heat or light shield? Is the "interesting price" good or bad? Around here where I live the only lanterns I have ever found at thrift shops, yard sales, etc are 288s, 290s usually ratty & way over priced. So have to go online to find anything interesting.

Paddy, I personally wouldn't try using that plastic shield; my guess is that it would melt, being that close to the globe, but who knows? I've never tested plastic that close.  About all it would be good for is a light shield, for just blocking the light from one direction.
It certainly is a nice lantern! The 242s are my favorites...

Thanks, Steve that is exactly what I wanted to know. Have to admit that yellow caught my eye like a bear to honey. Back in the 60s they were making everything out of plastic, some a great idea, others not so good. The 242 & 249s are fast becoming my favorite lanterns. They are nearly as bright as my 236 & 237s but sip the fuel. Still have not figured out why Coleman made 2 mantle lanterns, other than to sell more mantles. And I say this as my 1936 B is purring away across the room.

Dang, that vent is in really good shape.  That really is a nice looking lantern and all the paperwork is real bonus.  I'd try that shield out on a beater lantern with a cheap globe before using it on that lantern.

Till You pointed it out did not really see just how nice the vent was. This will be my newest 242, my oldest is one I just found from Feb 1936 that I have not had a chance to fettle yet.  It seems like they made a lot in 47 & 49.
