So now a code of "5 51" obviously means May of 1951.Many other Coleman items have been dated since the 1960s too.“Darren was a great collector and a friend of all who collected Coleman. and he documented the history of when globes were changed and the different styles used so others could learn.We in the Coleman Collecting Community have lost a good friend. You will be missed.” This might help you differentiate USA vs.
There are also some small belly or embossed globes made in a mold that have Coleman lettering in the casting, it seems all of this style found to date are cracked, it appears this style could not take the heat.Over time we will be collecting pictures of the globes to make the archive complete, and we will add new information and edits as we go.Thank you Darren for all your past efforts, we hope that collectors from around the world can continue to benefit from the work you did recording globe data and images. He designed many of the last few years ICCC globes…For Canadian lanterns it has the same sunshine logo on the front with “Made in USA” right under it and nothing on the back side.Again 355 lamp globes are marked in the very same way depending on country of origin.
