    My new 639C just bought for less than Coleman's suggested retail price (including delivery). Very easy to light and pump, so will likely become a regular work lamp come winter.

    I put on a Peerless 1111 mantle instead of the Coleman 111 provided since I've always been happier with the Peerless product. I'll likely change it to a Pescador after I put a tank of fuel through it.

    Interesting provenance since it appears that it was built for export to Canada, but no markings in French. Perhaps why they became available at a discount in the States.

    These lanterns are a great value, and it's a pity that they aren't more appreciated here in the North America.
