Hey Toby, I was showing the pic with all the lanterns to Bug ( my wife) when she spotted your avatar. She said “ Wow! That’s a gorgeous lantern” then she gave me permission to get one.

The buy was from an unknown collector in North Dakota. He passed away and his life partner contacted a buyer of Coleman collections and parts. Myself and two others went to ND and picked up the items and drove back to Washington State in a rented Uhaul truck.

The late collector had a very extensive collections that he had acquired over a lifetime. The more pristine items are still in North Dakota happily on display!
