    Very Cool!
    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.

More than 70 years old. It cooks really well, too. I can still find replacement parts on Ebay for both, some even still available from Coleman.
    Wow, that's quite the family heirloom! It's amazing that it is in such good shape, you have obviously taken great care of it.
    In this salt environment I just can't get one to last over about twenty years. We use ours mostly for cooking on the boat and camping on the islands and even after fresh water baths and getting oiled down they eventually turn orange. I just bought a new Coleman lantern, it's a national parks commemorative model, a propane NorthStar. They're brighter than the kerosene and white gas models and we use them wading, dipping blue crabs and gigging flounder as well as camping, so they get salted up pretty good too.

    It's been right at two years ago, now. She ought to be done in 6 months or less. And thanks for the kind words, Gigi.
