Do not modify a lantern for any reason. If you do, make sure you understand the word liability because you're going to hurt someone.





Coleman® Double Mantle Lantern
Production Information

Charting which years any particular Coleman® lantern was made is a never-ending process. The company began marking lanterns with date information in the mid-1920s. To learn how they have been marked over the years, please refer to our How-to section on dating appliances.

The information in these chapters has been gathered from multiple sources over a very long period of time. Nothing is guaranteed, but much of it is confirmed. Dates may be slightly different than those found on other websites.

This list only includes US made lanterns.

If you have an original lantern that is stamped with a date outside of the date ranges listed, or if it remains in the original box with date information on it, we'd like to hear from you. Please email a description and photo to info@oldtowncoleman.com.
