Fluorescent Battery lanterns have been omitted. Other Kerosene Lanterns, Propane & Butane Lanterns, and Irons Listed below are model designation for lanterns made by Coleman between 1914 and 1986. Included are lanterns made by Coleman for two of its early subsidiaries, Yale Light Co., Chicago, and the Sunshine Safety Light Col, Kansas City, Missouri. Coleman also produced lanterns for several other companies, including Sears, Roebuck and Co. Existing records do not detail these special production runs for listing marked with an asterisk (*).
