    Hi Bob: Wow!! These are quite rare and with the proper shades. For folks out in lamp collector land that want these rare gems, beware that many have been faked. (In the early 1980's a fellow in Southern California was stripping and replating many Quick-Lites to resemble these and selling them at Cailf. swapmeets. I and other Coleman collectors ran into him at a number of meets over several years. These lamps were only made for a short time in the early to mid twenties.) There are probably more around now then were originally made. The originals are CQF,B,G standing for Flemish brass, brass or gold. Mike...

    Hi Mike, No plating here. This is colored lacquer over polished brass. Tinted clear lacquer. Them old boys knew a thing or two, tricks long forgotten. Like Colac. Know anyone who can duplicate it? The "F" is Flemish Brass. The "B" is Roman Bronze. The rest you got. So the "F" is on the list. Got a shade for it too. :)
