Brass, trimmer, dies, projectiles, powder and primers ready for assembling a first batch... but before I do I want to chamber check this PPU brass to see what might need sizing and then the books to check case overall and trim-to lengths.

Looks like a guy will have plenty of light to work by even during a brownout!

That's the idea!

Plus, like lever carbine/rifle designs of the 19th Century, these lamps and lanterns are some of the most beautiful industrial art of the 20th.

Burn 'em if ya got 'em!

That's because you have good taste! sir.

It's my favorite model Coleman. It's a 228D made in late '49. Coleman in 1951 replaced the nickel-plated brass founts (tanks) with hunter-green painted steel founts. The model letter changed to 228E, the left-most lantern in the first of those three pictures.

Here's another 228D. Earlier models 228 that were nickel plated were the 228B and it's predecessors, the L227 and the Quicklite (that grubby-lookin' big hat in that third photo) I still don't have that part of Coleman's history nailed down, so excuse the poor chronology if any.
