Just bought this 200A clone. Dated 8-95 Is this rare or not worth the Jackson I spent on it. I can't find any model number anywhere on it. It might have been lit once, but its pretty clean

That's a beauty. You did well to find that. I've never even seen one outside of pics.

What's the lowest you'll take for this lantern?                                                

          Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.

The 200B is a desirable lantern. It is basically a make over on a Model 286. Uses a 288/286 generator.

Nice score. The 200B is basically a 286 dressed up to look like a 200A. Not rare, but definitely not common. I have one, but it took me quite a while to stumble across one in the wild. Congrats.

Deals like that don't come around too often! I don't know how many were made but the one you have with the diamond Coleman logo were only made in 1995. In 1997 the 200B's came with the more familiar parallelogram sticker. Far as I know they were only manufactured in 95 and 97 and maybe just for a short period at that. All the 97's I've seen were produced in September. Got mine at the March AFB Exchange back in the day. Still have it in it's original box unfired after all these years.

Very nice!! Kinda a pre-runner to the seasons series. I think a “made in German “ globe would be correct for these!?

Oh never mind. They had a special globe. The green one next to mine has a made in Germany globe.

Wish my 9/97 had a globe like yours! Mine came with a typical "Bulged Globe." Image

Wow, I got a "You Suck". That makes my day. I looked at this lantern in an antique mall several weeks back and passed on it. I usually don't buy any thing that new. Then Saturday I looked again and thought this could be something good. I've had some pretty good finds there in the past. Bought my 242nl there for $65 and a decent slant for $30. So I have to check in every once in a while. Sometimes you win. Too bad the globe is gone, I'll find a white letter globe and call it good.
Thanks everyone for your help!
