Coleman® Stove Production Information

Charting which years any particular Coleman® stove was made is a never-ending process. The company began marking lanterns with date information in the mid-1960s. To learn how stoves are date-marked, 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 stoves. Military stoves will be added at a later time.

If you have an original stove 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.

A red lantern in the "Photo" column indicates a photo is available.
