What year is your 242C?
Not sure. Serial number to find out? Likely won't be back for a few months, but will check next time.

On the bottom of the tank will be a number stamped on the left, that's the month and a number stamped on the right for the year.
So for the one on the right there's just a patent number on the bottom.
The one on the left has 5 11. No way is 106 years old, right?
Wow, I'd be interested in finding out!

I found a dating guide for Coleman products: Click Here

I like the 242Cs (especially with the unpainted founts) but they are hard to find. Looks like they were only made for 8 years! 8O

Tonight I plan on firing up the fire pit, lighting a couple of lanterns, and smoking a couple of cigars.
