I have purchased about a dozen white gas Coleman stoves at garage sales. I clean them up and give them to friends. I am down to about 3 two burner stoves so I will have to pick up some more before giving more away.
The lod school stoves and lanterns are also good for having people stop by our campsite to talk.
I personally don't like the propane stoves for the reasons listed above.
Someone had given me a gas lantern from WW2 years ago that was still in the box that I used for years and the parts are interchangeable with the newer lantern I got in 1971. The pump seal was made from leather instead of rubber, when you oiled it it would swell and create a good seal to pump up the lantern.

One of the first things I do during my initial cleanup of stoves that I get is to pull the pumps apart, clean them and rub Neatsfoot oil into the leather. I bought a can of the oil about 40 years ago and I don't think I will ever finish off the can. The replacement pump kits come with a synthetic pump seal and I don't think they will last as long.

^^^^^^ I've purchased new leather cups on ebay. Prices used to be a couple of bucks apiece but now people that have them to sell are asking a kings ransom. You might as well check it out anyway.

I still have a brand new one from my WW2 lantern, I guess I will treat it like gold. The one I did replace years ago is still working well just and a few drops of 3 in 1 oil every couple of years.
