Both items have nickel plated brass founts. The lantern was made in the first half of 1949, dated A/49. The stove is a bit harder to tell the date as it has a “B” denoting the second half of a year and only the number “1” on the other side which means it could be 1941 or 1951. It may have a 4 or a 5 but is stamped so faint, it cannot be seen. The nickel plating on both appliances do show their age. Both have a couple of minor dents. The stove and lantern have been completely disassembled and all parts cleaned. The burner parts on the stove have not only been cleaned, but have been painted with VHT Brand 2000 degree paint and cured as per the VHT instructions. The 500 stove, also known as the “Speedmaster” has a new fuel cap gasket. The pump leather has been oiled. The stove has been fueled. It pumps up and holds pressure and works great! The Model 500 was one of the few Coleman stoves to have a name as well as a model number. The Model 228D burner frame has also been painted with high heat paint. Upon it’s reassembly, it received a new fuel cap gasket and generator. It was fueled and it pumps up and holds pressure. When the valve wheel is opened, there is the familiar hiss and gurgle of a working lantern. The 228D retains it’s original green letter rising sun logo Pyrex globe. Two classic Coleman items that are ready to go to work or maybe add to your vintage camping display or just look nice on a display shelf.
