    Coleman didn’t date suitcase stoves prior to the early 1960’s. Best you can get is a range based on the model.

    Hi, @Big ERNIE ,

    I'm not familiar with the 318 stove, but the 242C is a great little lantern!! Please do post photos of all your goodies, as we love seeing them, and hopefully, can help you with dating your stove. Thanks, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc
