    Very nice 236.
    I read the year stamping as 33, representing 1933 .... or is the year stamp 38 representing 1938. I can’t see the month stamp though.
    What should I be seeing?
    Enjoy your prize.

    I notice the Coleman logo moved under the filler cap on the later models but I don't know when the change was made.

    That is a really nice 236. Very well preserved. Looks like it had not been used that much.
    Has anyone seen a 236 in any of the old Coleman catalogs?
