I have on display here an original Red Coleman gas lantern. Made in the U.S.A. way back in 1964. A really awesome vintage trademark of our American history. I was raised by my grandparents, my mother's parents, and I remember awesome camping trips with my, WWII hero grandpa, and this lantern is an icon of my early childhood memories. My dear ole grandpa left this world to rest in the company of our Lord when I was 15. At that time my grandma handed down to me this Red Coleman lantern because she knew what it meant to me and that it symbolized the wonderful times that I had shared with my grandfather.It is in great condition and it even still works after all the years gone by. I just wanted to share it for all to see. I know some of you will enjoy this piece and appreciate it's story and what it means to me. Thank you for taking the time to read my post.
