    Oh yes, I bought a globe for my 200A this week. Says "Made in China for Coleman".... *sigh*

    Edit- You are welcome also Bill! I had meant to get more sent off and "best laid plans" + ADD + Aluminum Cow disease... Well, there are two envelopes sitting here from 2 months ago, they just never made it to the post office. FOCUS can be a problem... :oops:

    edit 2- I think I sent 5 over at Xmas. Uh, I think :roll: ;) :oops:

    edit 3- I think I sent one to Richard and one to Nick... now... who was the other one? ](*,) ](*,)

    These are obviously modern, but how old are they?

    Hi Alan, I got some before Xmas and then a bunch more ( thinking of little thank you gifts for stove brothers ) about February? I think. I didn't look this week, because I have enough and haven't even sent off the two I packed up a couple months ago. Got them at the Coleman Factory Outlet in Castle Rock, CO. Picked them up on "30% off" sale day. Got two Exponent multi-fuels for dirt cheap the same sale.
    Best,
    Randy

    Sorry Dre,
    Just caught back up with the thread. I guess they can still be purchased as they showed up on the Coleman website! Pricey from the website though. :(

    I looked on the website and the specific tins cannot be ordered so if you buy multiples you may receive all the same variety.

    And here's another one of the six!
    The best one if you ask me. Many thanks for giving me this Randy! :thumbup:

    I couldn't resist in putting the box in a suitable environment. Just to show that it's in good hands. :mrgreen:
    The lantern shown on the box is perhaps a 220F, or what do you say?
    I have a 220F too, but it's a bit tacky so I choosed this unused 220H instead. It's close enough except for the black area around the fuel valve.

    Thanks again Randy!
