It would be nice if I had it all standardized, but I have 4 types of Coleman lanterns: #20, #21, Northstar and #11 kerosene lanterns. So I need to make sure I have extras for all of them. Unfortunately, stores around here only carry one type.
I think not.
I have packs of both those mantles and the 2-pack is labelled 21A102
and the 4-pack is 21A104
and both packs are listed as #21 mantles.
The photos you posted are marked the same.
Just like my Coleman #51 mantle package is marked 51A104
ETA: I believe the coleman 21A mantles were also marked silk-lite and contained thorium.
(Which is, of course a no-no now.)
So are you saying that there are #21 and #21A mantles ie they are for two types of lanterns?
